Ixia Net Optics iBypass 40-10

Comprehensive network packet brokering for 40G networks, delivering filtering, aggregation, load-balancing, and time-stamping

Ixia Net Optics iBypass 40-10 is an intelligent bypass switch that provides inline tool protection for inline network link deployments. The iBypass 40-10 augments network-monitoring capability through the use of microsecond resolution heartbeat packets, SNMP traps, field upgradable software, and an easy-to-use Web UI. The iBypass 40-10 allows monitoring of four 10GbE links or daisy-chaining multiple tools on 10GbE links.

Failsafe Inline Tool Deployment

Deployment of any inline tool in the network carries the risk of the tool becoming a point of failure. Should the inline tool become unavailable it can bring the network link down, making a critical segment of the network unavailable and affecting uptime. To avoid this risk, customers need a fail-safe solution that can protect the network from tool failures while allowing inline tools to protect the network from incoming threats.

Automatic Protection and Recovery

The iBypass switch continuously checks the responsiveness of the inline tool by sending it “heartbeat” packets, expecting to receive those packets back. If the iBypass switch detects that the tool is not responding, it will bypass the inline tool, allowing network traffic to flow without interruption. Should that happen, the iBypass switch will issue an alert to indicate that the tool became unavailable, allowing network or security personnel to take appropriate actions.

Flexible deployments

Having an iBypass switch deployed in front of inline tools provides greater deployment flexibility. When the inline tool needs to be taken out for maintenance the iBypass switch can be configured to bypass the inline tool and let network traffic flow uninterrupted. Once maintenance is complete, the iBypass can route traffic back through the upgraded tool.

Network Intelligence

The iBypass 40-10 includes Remote Monitoring (RMON) statistics and Ixia Net Optics ProPush™ statistics. ProPush statistics provide key network statistics every second. The combination of the many RMON and ProPush statistics provides great visibility into the network and allows integration with existing network management tools.

Smart Management

The iBypass 40-10 is a fully managed device and allows the user to view and change settings through a user-friendly Web UI, CLI, and SNMP browsers. Remote management security is provided through Role Based User Access (RBAC), 1024-bit SSL encryption, HTTPS, SNMPV3, SSH V2, and an IP Access List and to prevent unwanted access to management interfaces the iBypass can be configured to disable access to each of the interfaces. In the event there are system, link, power, or threshold changes the iBypass issues SNMP traps that are directed to the desired management devices, set in any of the interfaces.

Centralized Management

The iBypass is integrated into the Net Optics Indigo Management Platform which is a highly versatile tool for managing and monitoring the multitude of Net Optics devices from a single screen. The easy-to-use graphical user interface makes configuring multiple iBypass switches simple.
