Niagara 2294 is a Low Cost, Compact form factor, Gigabit Ethernet, External Active Bypass Switch. The active bypass 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 enabling flexibility and multiple configurations.

The Niagara 2294 passive bypass feature automatically switches the network traffic upon power failure of an attached in-line device, preserving network connectivity.

When Niagara 2294 detects an appliance malfunction such as a software crash, system failure or loss of power, the in-line traffic continues to flow 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 or packet loss. 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.

Niagara 2294 provides major features that are essential in today’s data centers:

  • Active switching of traffic in case of system failure
  • Passive Bypass which is essential during power loss
  • Plug and play – no additional drivers required on inline devices
  • 10/100/1000 TX (Copper), SX Gigabit (Multi mode) & LX Gigabit (Single mode) Support
  • Compact Desktop form factor
  • Flexible Deployment options including Copper, Multi-Mode Fiber, Single-Mode Fiber and Copper-to-Fiber Conversion
  • Extensive CLI and WEB based management
  • SSH and HTTPS for secure Management
  • Email Notification upon System Events
  • TACACS+ authentication
  • Syslog support
  • NTP and Time Zone
  • Full RoHS compliance
  • EMC, FCC Class A, UL Certifications
  • Extensive Bypass Configuration

Niagara 2294 allows for multiple bypass configuration and setup including:

  • Bypass - fail open or fail close
  • Bypass heartbeat custom configurations including:
  • Heartbeat pattern
    • Heartbeat frequency
    • Bypass on link loss
  • Configuration of the number of link losses prior to activating the bypass
  • Configuration of the number of heartbeats prior to disabling the bypass

Highly Reliable

Niagara 2294 deploys passive bypass along with active switching for fail safe operation.
