Inline Bypass Switch


A Network Bypass Switch ensures failover or fail-safe capabilities for an inline networking device or a network security tool such as a firewall, NGFW, IDS/IPS, WAF, DDOS and many other flavours of threat detection platforms. If the network or security appliance fails or needs to be taken off-line for whatever reason, its traffic is automatically rerouted, ensuring uninterrupted traffic flow on the network. The combination of in-line security solutions with Niagara Networks Bypass technology provides transparent inline full threat prevention without compromising reliability of the network and mission-critical services. Our platforms enable ultimate fexibility and service integrity to allow you to take down a security tool for maintenance, with the load balancing scheme automatically redistributing traffc to the remaining tools.


Key Features:

  • Design carrier-grade always-on inline security
    stack in a complex multi-vendor scenario
  • 400% higher density of bypass segments
    per single rack space for 40/100Gb networks
    versus other alternatives
  • Simplifed deployment as a single modular
    hybrid platform with low TCO
  • Pay-as-you go economical model with a
    modular solution that offers a hybrid packet
    broker, bypass, and TAP for all interface
    speeds 1/10/25/40/100Gb
  • Automation of fail-safe scenarios via REST
    API for unconstrained network security
