Net Optics 10 GigaBit Bypass Switches provide a permanent and trouble-free access port for in-line network security and monitoring devices. The 10 GigaBit Bypass Switch automatically switches network traffic through added in-line devices or bypasses devices that are about to be removed. Prevent link failure when attached IPS and IDS devices lose power by powering the Bypass Switch and in-line device from the same power source.

Simply Plug It In

High-availability for links with in-line devices is a snap with supplied cables. All network and monitoring cables necessary for plug-and-play deployment are included with the Bypass Switch.

Uninterrupted Traffic

The 10 GigaBit Bypass Switch supports fail-open monitoring with any fiber in-line device when it shares the same power source as the in-line appliance. While the Bypass Switch is receiving power, it diverts network traffic to attached in-line devices. In this state, all in-line traffic is routed directly to the device connected to the Bypass Switch. When power is lost, Fast Path maintains network link integrity with high-speed switching.

When the 10 GigaBit Bypass Switch loses power, in-line traffic continues to flow through the network link, but is no longer routed through the device. This allows the network devices to be removed and replaced without network downtime. Once power is restored to the Bypass Switch, network traffic is seamlessly diverted to the in-line device, allowing it to resume its critical functions.
