WAAS 4 port in-line card for resilient WAN links

I know tha...

" If a power, hardware, or unrecoverable software  failure occurs, the network adapter automatically begins operating in  bypass mode, where all traffic is mechanically bridged between the LAN  and WAN interfaces in each group"

But obviously putting both WAN links through a singel NIC/chassis raises concerns about a single point of failure. Has anyone experienced failure scenarios whereby the NIC fails to bridge?

Hi Jon,


The mechanical bypass relays are independent for each inline group.  I am not aware of any cases where the bypass functionality has not worked properly for the defined failure types.
