NetQuest’s OptiCop Interceptor is a purpose-built, comprehensive access solution for intercept applications. Interceptor enables communications service providers to meet the requirements for gathering call data and making it available to law enforcement and other intelligence agencies in lawful intercept situations by providing real-time, targeted access to customer data. It offers selective access to data traffic on a variety of packet or TDM service networks. Interceptor is specifically designed to selectively access, filter, and off-load processing requirements for intercept application probes, which increases the efficiency of these monitoring tools. Its ability to discover and automatically adjust to any standard stream speed and format makes its access functions independent from network re-provisioning. The Interceptor is typically installed between a WAN broadband network and telecommunications carrier, government agency and large enterprise local area network intercept monitoring equipment.
