iBypass 10Gb Fiber

A heartbeat away from in-line, fail-safe link protection

Problem: Avoiding network failures

Protecting your 10 Gbps network needs an array of inline network security and performance applications. For instance, intrusion prevention system (IPS) appliances are excellent for blocking security threats and monitoring networks for nefarious activity. Unfortunately, these tools can easily lead to unnecessary downtime by dropping packets and causing glitches in important programs. Power, link, and application failures can all negatively impact network performance and business continuity.

Solution: Confidence in fail-safe connectivity

Ixia iBypass 10Gb Fiber performs double duty by enabling secure monitoring with in-line applications and safeguarding your network against unanticipated downtime. Such fail-safe connectivity allows you to insert or remove any in-line appliance with confidence.

iBypass 10Gb Fiber monitors any link to an attached in-line device by sending a configurable heartbeat packet to the attached monitoring tool. If the tool does not return the heartbeat, iBypass 10Gb Fiber automatically bypasses it. Other innovative features include a web manager that allows users to remotely configure, view status information, and monitor traffic data on one or more switches. And visual indicators such as a digital display and alarm LEDs signal when utilization levels are about to exceed a monitoring device’s capacity for preemptive action.

the monitoring device is bypassed and traffic flows directly between the network
ports; traffic is also mirrored to the monitor ports as if the iBypass Switch were a
full-duplex breakout Tap
Tap: The CLI command “set timeout 0” to force Bypass ON mode; the iBypass Switch
operates as a full-duplex breakout Tap
