Backplane Systems Technology Presents MPL’s IEBY Bypass Switch that increases network reliability
Backplane Systems Technology is proud to present MPL’s Industrial Gigabit Ethernet Bypass, IEBY. The IEBY is a hardware device that provides a fail-safe access port for an in-line active security appliance such as an intrusion prevention system, firewall, etc.
Active in-line security appliances are single point of failures in live computer networks because if the appliance loses power, experiences a software failure, is taken off-line for updates or upgrades traffic no longer can flow thru the critical link. The bypass switch (IEBY) removes this point of failure by automatically switching the traffic via the bypass to keep the critical network linked up.
The IEBY Bypass switch increases the network reliability. The two network ports in a bypass switch create a fully passive in-line connection that maintains traffic even in absence of power. Micro relays connect the two ports when power is absent. The IEBY can be integrated into any MPL embedded computer solution (PIP, CEC, MXCS) or networking products.
