Datacom DURAstream DS-2408 Serie Bypass Switch

Deploying in-line monitoring devices such as intrusion prevention systems (IPS) or bridge devices like VPN gateways and firewalls used to mean a potential point of failure on the network. When one of these devices malfunctions or becomes overwhelmed with traffic, network outages can occur. This presents serious challenges on mission critical links. The DS-2408 ensures your network?s most important data does not fail even when in-line devices do. Deploying a DS-2408 ensures uptime of critical links regardless of in-line device performance by diverting critical network traffic away from malfunctioning in-line devices until such devices are operating normally. This not only alleviates potential issues with traffic congestion affecting link behavior caused by an IPS, it allows maintenance and upgrades of attached in-line tools without network downtime. The DS-2408 is an easy-to-manage external active bypass providing failover for data monitoring of critical 1 and 10 Gigabit network segments.Line rate throughput and real-time data forwarding hardware protects data and allows critical voice and data applications to perform uninterrupted and meet high demands for quality and security.(Tools from Wireshark and TamoSoft etc. available)
