How it works
In the event of the failure of the data
server / router connected to the "A / active" port of the E3
Protection (Fail-Over) Switch, it shall automatically switch and
connect the E3 line from the telephone company to the data server /
router on the "B / standby" port. 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

when the customer is using a single E3 line and install "active" E3
equipment and "standby" E3 equipment (such as a ROUTER) at the
customers premises. The E3 Failover Switch shall automatically switch
the E3 line from the telephone company between the ACTIVE E3 data
server / router and the STANDBY E3 data server / router. Should the
ACTIVE E3 data server / router fail or be removed from service, the E3
line from the telephone company automatically switches to the STANDBY
E3 data server / router without requiring any customer or user
