DS-2408 Bypass Switch

DURAstream™ Bypass Switches DS-2408 Bypass Switch

Ensure 100% Network Uptime when Deploying InLine Monitoring Solutions and Intrusion Protection Systems

The DURAstream™ DS-2408 10G Bypass Switch 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.
