Silicom Gigabit Ethernet Bypass servers adapter are PCI-Express X4 network interface cards that contains four independent Gigabit ports on one PCI-E adapter.
Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapters are designed with optical or copper bypass circuitry in order to provide maximum up time for the network .
Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapters can Bypass its Ethernet ports on a host system failure, power off, or upon software request. In Bypass mode , the connections of the Ethernet network ports are disconnected from the interfaces and switched over to the other port to create a crossed connection loop – back between the Ethernet ports.
Hence, in bypass mode all packets received from one port are transmitted to other port and vice versa. This feature enables to bypass a failed system and provides maximum up time for the network. Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapters include an on board WDT (Watch Dog Timer) controller.
