Niagara 2845 is a modular 10/40/100 Gigabit Network Packet Broker, Intelligent Active Bypass Switch and TAPs system.

The Niagara 2845 can support up to 4 hot-pluggable, field-replaceable modules that can be either 1G/10G/40G/100G TAPs (supporting 50:50, 40:60, 30:70, 20:80 ratios) or 1G/10G/40G/100G Bypass segments or NPB modules. The active bypass functionality enables plug and play connectivity, includes an auto heartbeat and does not require additional drivers to be installed on connected appliances. The unit possesses management functionality that can be utilized via an extensive web GUI or CLI which enables flexibility and multiple configurations.

The Niagara 2845 passive bypass feature automatically switches the network traffic upon power failure of an attached in-line device, preserving network connectivity. The Niagara 2845 is designed to integrate with UTM, Firewall, WAN Acceleration, QoS, DPI, IPS, IDS and Enterprise IT security appliances. When Niagara 2845 bypass functionality detects an appliance malfunction such as a software crash, system failure or loss of power, the in-line traffic continues through the network link, but is no longer routed through the in-line device. This ensures that network devices can be removed and replaced without network downtime. Once the system is back up or the power is restored to the appliance, network traffic is seamlessly diverted back to the in-line device, allowing it to resume its critical functions.
