Network test access points (TAPs) are hardware tools that allow you to access and monitor your network. Bypass TAPs (active TAPs), also referred to as a 'bypass switch',  are used with inline, active security appliances such as next generation firewalls and intrusion prevention systems. Garland Technology bypass TAPs are purpose-built hardware devices that let you see every bit, byte and packet.®

Bypass TAPs are used to connect a monitored network segment to an in-line active appliance and monitor the device's health. If your security device goes off-line for any reason the bypass TAP will automatically 'switch to bypass mode’ keeping your network link up while you to resolve the issue.

  • Availability (HA) solution, TAP once and connect one primary and one secondary in-line appliance and up to two out-of-band monitoring appliances.
  • Network Fail-safe Technology: during failsafe in-line appliances still receive packets. Garland failsafe technology recognizes power outages and automatically closes the relay circuitry in less than eight milliseconds then reconnects the two network devices connected to ports A and B. 
  • Heartbeat Packets are sent out onto each monitoring port. If the heartbeat packets are not received from either direction, then Bypass mode takes effect. Heartbeat packets are never sent on the live network.
  • Fiber to copper media conversion.
  • Supports Link Failure Propagation(LFP) - In the event the primary network connection is lost, the fail over mechanism forces the network to backup/secondary network.
  • Supports multiple modes: tap 'breakout,' aggregation, regeneration and bypass.
  • Supports Jumbo frames and passes physical errors.
  • 100% secure and invisible; no IP address, no Mac address; cannot be hacked.
