Bypass protection comes in two forms: logical and physical. Both operate on the principle that traffic must continue, even if it can't be inspected.
Physical bypass is the ability to physically forward packets in the event of a Gigamon visibility node power failure. It also allows you to upgrade your tools without impacting network downtime. Switching to protected mode occurs automatically and without software intervention upon the loss of power.
