In any single elimination pool tournament with an odd number of players or teams, a by is always neecssary. This is one reason double elimination can be slightly more "fair", or points are used.

Players or team are paired, 1 to 1, but with an odd number in any round, a player has no one to play. This player gets advanced to the next round as if he/she had a win, and this is called a "bye". The play should be arranged such that no player or team gets more than one bye.

Having a "bye" is a term that is used for tournament play. When a team or person is not required to play in any one round of tournament play, it is called a "bye" and is essentially treated the same as a win. A tournament has assigned points for a bye where points are in use that are typically not as high as the points for a true win.
