Product: NTBPE In-line
The NTBPE is an optical bypass adapter, which provides a stand-alone failover solution for in-line applications using Napatech optical adapters.
Normal and BypassThe NTBPE adapter has two modes: Normal and Bypass. In Normal mode network packets are sent through the bypass adapter to an in-line adapter. In Bypass mode network packets flow through unattended, maintaining a transparent flow of network traffic. The NTBPE switches to Bypass mode in the event of a detected failure. The switchover can also be performed on command via software. This allows adapters to be taken out of commission for feature upgrades.
ConfigurationsThe NTBPE has simultaneous support for 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps connections, and supports 4 optical network adapter ports. Two product variants are available supporting either single-mode 9 Ám or multi-mode 50 Ám fiber.
