Example of a High Availability (HA) deployment showing two firewalls in ACTIVE-STANDBY and an IPS acting in series to the other two. This also shows a HA configuration for the network links.

Our iBypass VHD provides built-in tap, regeneration, and aggregation functions and the following unique capabilities:

Preconfigured Heartbeats

Preconfigured to work with security tools through a single click, reducing setup times and eliminating potential errors during deployment. Ixia is the only bypass switch vendor with preset, integrated security tool heartbeats built into the user interface.

Central Management Support

Our Fabric Controller Centralized Manager, the only central management tool for bypass switches, simplifies and speeds iBypass VHD configuration and management of tens to hundreds of devices. This is a necessary requirement for any large-scale deployment and is available for all Ixia iBypass switches.

Very High Density

Highest density 10G bypass switch, supporting up to 12 x 10G bypass switches in 1U. This maximizes valuable data center real estate, reducing rack cost for large-scale deployments.
