Niagara Networks Active Bypass Solutions

Network downtime is a customer service and operational efficiency killer. Whether it’s an unplanned outage due to failed equipment or a planned bypass for system upgrades, the faster and more seamlessly your network can transition in and out of bypass mode, the better.

The Niagara 2294 Intelligent Active Bypass Switch is a Low Cost, Compact form factor Gigabit Ethernet External Active Bypass Switch that enables plug-and-play connectivity, includes an auto heartbeat, and does not require additional drivers to be installed on connected appliances. The 2294 detects outages of attached in-line appliances in 3 microseconds and automatically reroutes traffic to maintain network connectivity. Traffic continues to flow through the network link, but is no longer routed through the in-line device. You can remove, repair, or replace the in-line device without network downtime or packet loss. When the in-line appliance is back online, network traffic is diverted back to it allowing it to resume normal functioning.
