E1 Failover (E1 Automatic Protection) Switch
E1 Protection (Failover ) Switch - 4 E1 Links (12 E1 Ports)


 

Product Overview

AceCom's E1 Fail-Over (E1 Protection) Switch (12 E1 Ports - 4 Links) allows the user to connect a single E1 line from the telephone company to an "active", as well as to a "standby" E1 terminal, such as data server / router etc. at the customer premises.

How it works?

In the event of the failure of the data server / router connected to the "A / active" port of the E1 Protection (Fail-Over) Switch, it shall automatically switch and connect the E1 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 network.

Features

  • Allows the user to connect an E1 line from the Telephone Company and to switch it automatically between an "active" and a "standby" E1 terminal at the customer premises. The user programmable switching criterion may be Loss Of E1 Signal, AIS and Loss Of E1 Frame.

  • Can accommodate upto four E1 lines - may be used switch between "active" and "standby" E1 terminals connected to upto four (or fewer) E1 lines.

  • Independent switching for each of the four E1 lines.

  • User programmable switching criterion - independent for each E1 line.

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

  • Remotely accessible over a TCP-IP networks. Allows the user to access and carry out maintenance, or / and switch the E1 line(s) between the "active" and "standby" E1 terminals, remotely, if required.


Operations and Maintenance (OAM) Interfaces 
 

  • RS232 serial interface for local terminal access

  • USB serial interfaces for local terminal access

  • 10/100BaseT Ethernet Interface for remote access over an IP network.


Management and Monitoring 
 

  • RS232 serial, USB serial interfaces for local terminal access.

  • 10/100BaseT Ethernet Interface for remote access over an IP network.

  • Encrypted Password Protection.

  • Telnet Remote access over IP links.

  • SSH Secured remote access using Secure Shell Protocol over IP links.

  • SNMP Traps and NMS for real time remote monitoring and management over an IP network.

  • Automatic Link Test feature link testing at user programmable periodical intervals.

  • Visual I/O status LED Display.

 

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 E1 lines from the telephone company.

  • Automatically switches the E1 line from the Telephone Company between the "active" and "standby" E1 equipment at the customer premises, according to the customer-programmed 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 E1 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 E1 Fail-Over Switch should be used when the customer is using a E1 line to connect to and install "active" E1 equipment and "standby" E1 equipment (such as a ROUTER or a PBX) at the customers premises.

  • The E1 Failover Switch shall automatically switch the E1 line from the telephone company between the ACTIVE E1 data server / router and the STANDBY E1 data server / router. Should the ACTIVE E1 data server / router fail or be removed from service, the E1 line from the telephone company automatically switches to the STANDBY E1 data server / router without requiring any customer or user intervention.

  • 8/16 E1/T1 Links (24/48 E1/T1 Ports), 1+1 Automatic Protection Switching Equipment: This equipment is to be used when the customer wants to use two different E1/T1 links of the network to establish a 1+1 redundant path to ensure continued E1/T1 service between two points even if one of the network E1/T1 link fails. Example - the customer may want to use E1/T1 Optical Fiber and an E1/T1 Radio link and to provide an ACTIVE and a STANDBY link between a BSC and a BTS so that when the E1/T1 Optical Fiber (ACTIVE) link goes down the STANBY / REDUNDANT E1/T1 Radio link automatically  gets connected to provide continued connectivity and service between the BSC and the BTS.

Applications
 

User programmable criterion for switching between
Active and standby E1 Links at the customers premises.



 


User programmable criterion for switching between Active and Standby E1 Links at the customers premises:

Loss Of E1 Signal (LOS)

The Loss of Signal condition in a E1 may occur due to:

  • The failure of the E1 Port of the customer premises equipment.

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

  • Or due to the disconnection of the E1 cable between the protection Switch and the E1 Port of the customer premises equipment.

The cause of LOF is framing error.

Loss Of Frame (LOF)

This Alarm is also known as Blue Alarm. This Alarm indicates unframed all ones being detected in the incoming signal on the receiver of E1 Protection Switch.

Alarm Indication Signal (AIS)

This Alarm indicated that E1 link has occurred.

Remote Alarm (RA)

When Framed: Alternating eight ones/eight zeros have been detected in the Data link. A Yellow Alarm is typically transmitted to indicate a failure on the receive side of the Failed end.

CRC ERROR

This parameter is the number of CRC-6 errors (Cyclic Redundancy Check Errors) that occurred during the test period.

CRC-6 errors are only counted while the Telco E1 framing is selected as (Extended Super frame). The CRC-6 can be monitored either on In-Service or Out-of-Service E1 Spans. Since the expected value of the CRC pattern can be anticipated, the received data can be compared to the expected results. Whenever the expected value does not equal the actual value a CRC error event is counted.
