NEW Sealed Box NetOptics IBP-HBCU3 10/100/1000 Copper Active iBypass Switch w/ Heartbeat Network Switch

Net Optics intelligent 10/100/1000 Bypass (iBypass) Switch with Heartbeat introduces the industries first remotely accessible in-line security access device. IT security professionals can now monitor and configure traffic parameters being sent to their IPS devices, ensuring more efficient data capture. Bi-directional traffic utilization and peak indicators can now be viewed on-line or via front panel display to help identify possible network or application anomalies before there is a major outage. With available Net Optics management software, a comprehensive view of all intelligent devices and their operating status are accessible.

Link Fault Protection

Exclusive Net Optics “Heartbeat and Link Fault Detect” features allow an iBypass Switch and IPS appliance to share state information. A configurable heartbeat packet sent from the iBypass Switch to the IPS helps identify link anomalies or device failures. In the event of a device failure, IPS redeployment or a software malfunction, traffic is routed from the in-line appliance using Fast PathTM switching technology through the iBypass Switch.


New Remote Management Capabilities

Net Optics Web Manager and System Manager offer two new levels of remote management capability depending on your IT needs. These new software based tools provide for easy to read security and performance information from either a single device or all of the Net Optics devices deployed in your network.

Web Manager

Net Optics Web Manager is the browser-based interface that allows you to change settings, view status, and retrieve data remotely with simple-to-use controls. When you access an iBypass Switch with Web Manager, all configuration, status, and traffic data are displayed on a single page. Changes to the configuration can be made with a few clicks of the mouse.

System Manager

Net Optics System Manager is a centralized management tool that can be configured to access all Net Optics intelligent devices in the network using SNMP. With System Manager, you can organize iBypass Switches into groups according to workgroup, location, or any other criteria. As with Web Manager, you can view all status, configuration, and traffic information and quickly make changes to any iBypass Switch in the system.

Cables Included!


Each 10/100/1000 iBypass Switch includes all the cables and power supplies necessary to connect to an IPS. Three quick steps are all it takes to establish a secure connection point for in-line devices. For special applications, the bypass trigger, heartbeat rate, and heartbeat packet can be customized from an RS232 command line interface.

Uninterrupted Traffic


The 10/100/1000 iBypass Switch supports fail-safe monitoring with any 10/100/1000BaseT in-line device when it shares the same power source as the in-line appliance. While the iBypass Switch is receiving power, it diverts network traffic to attached in-line devices. In this state, all in-line traffic is routed directly to the device connected to the Bypass Switch.

When the 10/100/1000 iBypass Switch loses power, in-line traffic continues to flow through the network link, but is no longer routed through the device. This allows the network devices to be removed and replaced without network downtime. Once power is restored to the iBypass Switch, network traffic is seamlessly diverted to the in-line device, allowing it to resume its critical functions.
