New Dual Segment 10-Gigabit Intelligent Bypass Switch


At CeBIT in Hanover, Germany, this week, Interface Masters Technologies introduced a new member of its 10-gigabit product family that is designed to integrate with inline networking devices, security appliances and central office applications. The Niagara 2814 intelligent bypass consists of dual 10-Gb bypass segments that possess passive and active bypass switch capabilities. The active bypass feature enables seamless failover without interrupting the communication session in case of a software crash or link loss. In addition to bypass, the system can support TAP functionality for traffic monitoring purposes. The Iitelligent bypass also enables plug-and-play connectivity, includes an auto heartbeat, and requires no additional drivers to be installed on connected appliances.

The Niagara 2814 10Gb bypass is managed by a 64-bit MIPS controller that supports a wide variety of control and management capabilities. The system provides flexible and intuitive CLI and GUI management features including secure web UI via an HTTPS connection, secure shell (SSH), SNMP, e-mail notification for special events, and bypass method configuration. An authentication client capable of interfacing with authentication servers like TACACS+ and Radius will be supported. In addition, the bypass system possesses Syslog support, enabling consolidation of log data from various systems into a central repository. This feature provides management, traceability and security auditing across a wide variety of devices and receivers on multiple platforms.
