Network Critical- 10 Gigabit V-LineTM Bypass TAP Solution
10gigabit Ethernet Test
Do you need to monitor the health of your network appliance? Do you need remote access? Would you like to switch from TAP mode to In-Line mode?
The SmartNA 10 Gigabit V-Line 1U Chassis with its modular design is the most flexible 10G Bypass solution available. Install up to four (4) SmartNA 10G V-Line modules in SR, LR, or ER to add a permanent Bypass TAP solution into your datacenter. Managed through an easy to use web interface, administration overhead is reduced and network uptime is increased. This 10 Gigabit Tap can be configured as a Breakout TAP, Aggregating TAP, or V-Line (Bypass) TAP.
The Network Critical Smart Network Access 10G V--‐Line TAP (SNA10GV) is a virtually inline network traffic access point that protects your networks integrity from network failures and network appliance maintenance. The SNA10GV generates a heartbeat and supports several modes of operation.
The SNA10GV includes two duplex LC ports for live network devices, two SFP+ ports for the Attached inline monitoring device, and two management ports: serial port (RJ--‐11) and a gigabit Ethernet port (RJ--‐45). The SNA10GV supports 10 Gigabit Multimode Fiber (10GBase-- SR) and 10 Gigabit single mode fiber (10GBase--‐LR) network standards.
The SNA10GV is a 1U chassis system that will support up to (4) Network Critical Smart
Network Access 10G V--‐Line modules, and includes redundant 110 --‐ 220 VAC power supplies.
The SNA10GV modules support four operation modes: - Inline, Bypass, TAP and Link Drop modes.
Inline: The SNA10GV diverts inline network traffic to attached inline monitoring appliance.
Bypass: The SNA10GV diverts inline network traffic to the other network link only.
TAP: Incoming traffic in port NETA is mirrored to port MONA and incoming traffic in port NETB is mirrored to port MONB.
Link Drop: The SNA10GV disables the links on the network ports (NETA, NETB). The module simulates a live network device cable disconnection. Sometimes used in high availability designs, where multiple inline tools are on more than one primary/secondary link pair.
The SNA10GV modules include a "Double Safe" Bypass design. The "Double safe" Bypass architecture is based on two separate Bypass routing circuitries: An Inline (Active) Bypass circuitry and a Network (Passive) FailSafe Bypass circuitry. If the internal active bypass routing circuitry fails, the network bypass routing circuitry is activated and traffic resumes flowing.
The SNA10GV can be configured via a management serial communication port and via management Ethernet port using TELNET, SSH, HTTPS or SNMP.
