TAPs & Switches
Vendor: Niagara Networks
A Network Bypass Switch is a hardware platform, which ensures failover or fail-safe capabilities for an inline networking device or a network security tool (such as a firewall, NGFW, IDS/IPS or DDOS). If the network appliance fails or needs to be taken off-line for whatever reason, its traffic is automatically rerouted, ensuring uninterrupted traffic flow on the network.

A Network Packet Broker (NPB) is an active device that directs selected raw data packets from network interfaces (typically via SPAN or tap points) to specific network service and monitoring devices, and performance management and security applications.

A network tap is an external network device that creates a “copy” of the traffic for use by various monitoring devices. It allows port mirroring and is an intrical part of an organization's network stack. The tap device is introduced at a point in the path of the network that is felt should be observed, so that it can copy data IP packets and send them to a monitoring device. The network designer will decide where that significant point for the network tap should be placed in the network infrastructure, based on the reason for network interface observation: data gathering, analysis, general network monitoring (such as for saturation and latency), or more critical, such as for intrusion detection, etc.
