Sandvine Bypass Switch is an active external bypass switch that is designed to protect network integrity during adjacent network failures, product failures, and network maintenance. This enables even the most cautious network manager to deploy Sandvine products inline.
The Bypass Switch supports multiple modes of operations which allows for seamless automatic failover. In inline mode, the Bypass Switch diverts inline network traffic to attached inline network systems such as PacketLogic Real-Time Enforcement/iQ units. In bypass mode, the Bypass Switch does not divert the traffic to the attached inline network system and diverts it to another network link.
The stand-alone architecture of Sandvine Bypass Switch enables it to manage installations with any PacketLogic system, from entry-level systems and all the way up to the high-end appliances and chassis-based PacketLogic systems.
