A CDE Definition
A cable connection that is made with a unit that clamps onto and "bites" into the cable, hence the vampire name. Vampire taps were used to attach thick Ethernet transceivers to the coaxial cable. Without a vampire tap, the cable had to be cut and connectors had to be attached to both ends. See 10Base5. See vampire device.
