The Lantech IFR-0202 provides a permanent and trouble-free access port for in-line network devices. The 4×4 Optical Bypass Switch automatically switches network traffic through added in-line devices or bypasses devices that are about to be removed. Prevent link failure when attached in-line devices lose power by powering the IFR-0202 and in-line device from the same power source.
The Lantech IFR-0202 supports bypass function with fiber in-line device when it shares the same power source as the in-line device. While the IFR-0202 is receiving power, it diverts network traffic to attached in-line devices. In this state, all in-line traffic is routed directly to the device connected to the IFR-0202.
When the Optical Fiber Controller loses power, in-line traffic continues to flow through the network link, but is no longer routed through the device. This allows the network devices to be removed and replaced without network downtime. Once power is restored to the IFR-0202, network traffic is seamlessly diverted to the in-line device, allowing it to resume its critical functions.
