Build a bridge between your network and inline tools

Problem: Monitoring tools add failure points to strained, mission-critical networks

Today’s organizations are facing a triad of network concerns: the increasing volume of multiprotocol traffic at higher data rates, mounting security threats, and a strict regulatory environment. Deploying inline tools to inspect and control network traffic can help block incoming threats, but inline tools also complicate network operations—the more tools you deploy, the more potential points of failure. And in the event an inline tool becomes unavailable, it can completely bring down the network link, significantly compromising network uptime and disrupting business continuity.

Solution: Increase network uptime with a very high density, flexible bypass platform

Get fail-safe inline protection for all network monitoring tools with Ixia’s very-high-density bypass switch, iBypass VHD. You’ll improve overall network reliability, increase application availability, and add the convenience and cost savings of remote monitoring and control—all important requirements for any enterprise deployment. Ixia iBypass VHD provides built-in tap, regeneration, and aggregation functions and the following unique capabilities:
