EdgeSafe: 100G Bypass Modular Network TAP

100G | Inline Bypass | Failsafe | Ensure reliability for multiple inline tools

A Bypass TAP, also referred to as a 'bypass switch', provides the ability to manage the availability and reliability of your inline tool (IPS, WAF, firewalls) any time without network downtime or impacting business availability for maintenance or upgrades. A critical component to IT security strategies.

Garland’s 100G modular EdgeSafeTM Bypass TAPs, are purpose-built to provide the ultimate failsafe device that eliminates single points of failure, reducing network downtime, without compromising the network.

Bypass TAP "Inline lifecycle management" allows you to sandbox new tool deployments, manage updates, install patches, perform maintenance or troubleshooting and validate out-of-band, without impacting the network.

Key Features

  • Inline Bypass — sandbox, deploy, troubleshoot and replace active inline tools without taking the network link down
  • Network Failsafe - Garland failsafe technology recognizes power outages and automatically closes the relay circuitry in less than eight milliseconds, reconnecting the two network devices connected to ports A and B
  • Heartbeat Health Check - Configurable heartbeat packets monitor the health of the inline appliance. If the tools availability changes, the Bypass TAP will automatically ‘bypass’ the tool, or failover to a redundant solution, keeping your network up while you resolve the issue


  • Up to (2x) 100G TAPs in a 1U chassis
  • TAP both 100G-SR4, and 100G-LR4 Links | Monitor ports 100G-SR4 or 100G-LR4
  • Each TAP module is field replaceable.
  • Scalable modular design with media conversion
  • Support for packet injection, jumbo frames, link failure propagation with TACACS, SNMP and Syslog
  • Simple easy to use GUI management
  • Dual redundant power supplies
  • Tested and supported in the USA

EdgeSafe Bypass TAPs continuously checks the responsiveness of the inline tool by sending “heartbeat” packets between it and the tool. If the tool is not responding, the TAP will “bypass” the inline tool, allowing network traffic to flow without interruption.

EdgeSafe Bypass TAPs continue to send traffic and heartbeat packets out-of-band to the inline tool even after the tool stops responding. As soon as the tool becomes operational, replaced or re-optimized, the EdgeSafe will re-route traffic back through the tool to ensure it is continuing to protect the network.
