Bypass Switches

Net Optics 96475 Bypass Switch

Bypass Switches provide a trouble-free access port for in-line network security and monitoring devices. The Bypass Switch with Heartbeat sends a heartbeat packet to the device, protecting network traffic against link, application, and power failure on the attached in-line device.


DURAstream™ Bypass Switches

Datacom Systems DURAstream DS-4000 Bypass Switch

DURAstream™ Bypass Switch ensures your network’s most important data does not fail even when in-line devices do. Deploying a DURAstream™ Bypass Switch ensures uptime of critical links regardless of in-line device performance by diverting critical network traffic away from malfunctioning in-line devices until such devices are operating normally. This not only alleviates potential issues with traffic congestion affecting link behavior caused by an IPS, it allows maintenance and upgrades of attached in-line tools without network downtime.
