DS3 Fail-Over (DS3 Protection) Switch
 

 

Product Overview

DS3 Fail-Over (DS3 Protection) Switch - Upto 2 x DS3 Links

Orion Telecom Networks Inc. offers DS3 Protection (Fail-Over) Switch allows the user to connect a single DS3 line from the telephone company to an "active", as well as to a "standby" DS3 terminal, such as data server, router etc. at the customer premises. In the event of the failure of the active (main) a terminal equipment at the customer premises, the DS3 Protection (Fail-Over) Switch automatically "switches" the DS3 line from the service provider to the standby (working) DS3 terminal.

How it works ?

In the event of the failure of the data server / router connected to the "A / active" port of the DS3 Protection (Fail-Over) Switch, the DS3 line from the telephone company shall automatically be "switched" to the data server / router on the "B / standby" port of the DS3 Protection (Fail-Over) Switch. This ensures minimum downtime - which would have otherwise occurred due to equipment failure connected to the "A / active" port. This equipment may be used to enhance the reliability and the efficiency of the customer's data network.

Features

  • Allows the user to connect a DS3 line from the Telephone Company and to switch it automatically between an active and a standby DS3 terminal at the customer premises

  • LOS (Loss of DS3 Signal) is the switching criterion between "Active" and "Standby" DS3 Ports

  • Fail-Safe switching to Main (Port A) link in to event of equipment or power failure

  • Available in a single DS3 line and a two DS3 line version

  • Independent switching for each DS3 line (in the 2, DS3 line version)

  • Built-in real-time clock / real-time logging maintains a history of all events

  • Provides USB Serial Port and RS232 COM Port for local management

  • Remotely accessible over a TCP/IP networks. Allows the user to access and carry out maintenance, or / and switch the DS3 line between the "active" and "standby" DS3 terminals, remotely, if required

  • SNMP V2

  • Dual AC (1+1 AC) or Dual - 48V DC (1+1 DC) power input.

Benefits

  • Allows the users to install and maintain active / standby / duplicate customer premises data networks / data servers, without bearing the recurring $$ expense of leasing additional expensive DS3 lines from the telephone company

  • Automatically switches the DS3 link from the Telephone Company between the "active" and "standby" DS3 equipment at the customer premises, according to the customer-defined criterion

  • Improves equipment and data security.

  • Allows the user to co-locate the "backup / standby" equipment in a different room / building and prevent any data loss arising out of conditions of natural calamity such as fire, flooding etc

  • Increases the reliability of the customer's data / IT networks without having to bear the recurring and additional cost of leasing additional DS3 lines from the telephone company. The equipment may be used to create secondary / backup systems at the customer premises to provide virtually uninterrupted service.

Application Note

The DS3 Fail-Over Switch should be used when the customer wishes to connect redundant (active and standby) DS3 equipment (such as Routers) at the customers premises to a single DS3 service line from the telephone company.

The DS3 Fail-Over Switch shall automatically switch the DS3 service line from the telephone company between the ACTIVE DS3 data server / router and the STANDBY DS3 data server / router. Should and whenever the ACTIVE DS3 data server / router fail (or be removed from service), the DS3 line from the telephone company automatically switches to the STANDBY DS3 data server / router without requiring any customer or user intervention.

The DS3 Fail-Over Switch may also be accessed remotely by the user to allow forced / manual switching between the two DS3 terminals through user executable software commands using Telnet.

DS3 Switching Parameter

Loss of DS3 Signal (LOS)

 

The Loss of Signal condition in a DS3 may occur due to:

  • The failure of the DS3 Port of the customer premises equipment.

  • Or due to loss of power to the customer premises equipment.

  • Or due to the disconnection of the DS3 cable between the protection Switch and the DS3 Port of the customer premises equipment.
DS3 Switching Time Change over time from main port to the standby port is user configurable from 10 ms to 3000 ms.

Recovery time from standby to main port is also user configurable from 10ms to 9999 ms.
