An FDDI station option that ensures ring integrity. The Bypass Switch has a default state when power is lost. When a power Failure occurs, optical connections are made within the DAS that reconnect the incoming primary ring Fiber with the primary ring fiber. Similar connections are made on the secondary ring. This allows Network operation to continue without the need for reconfiguration, which can still be employed for emergency situations.
