(1+1 Automatic Protection Switch)
Orion Telecom Networks Inc. offers
the VCL-SafeComm, 16 E1 Links (48 E1 Ports), 1+1 Automatic
Protection Switching Equipment may be used to protect upto 16 E1
Links (48 E1 Ports), point-to-point links and provide an
alternate communication route to each E1 Link between any two E1
points. In the event of the failure of the primary (Main) E1
communication route, the VCL-SafeComm, 16 E1 Links (1+1
Automatic Protection Switching Equipment) automatically switches
the E1 traffic to a secondary (standby) E1 route.
The VCL-SafeComm, 16 E1, 1+1 Automatic Protection Switching
equipment is available in a 2U high chassis, which may be mounted in
any DIN standard,19-Inch rack.
This product allows the user to design 1+1 (protected) redundant E1
routes on similar (fiber-fiber), or complementing (fiber-radio)
The criterion for switching between the primary (main) and the
secondary (protected / standby) routes is user programmable.
Criterion for switching between the primary (main) and the secondary
(protected / standby) routes may be Loss-Of-Signal on E1 links, or
AIS (All-Ones AIS alarm) condition. The criterion for switching time
and recovery time between the primary (main) and the secondary
(protected / standby) routes is user programmable.
Data transported on the E1 Links is
transparent and protocol independent.
Providing 1+1 alternate paths between
any two Transmission mediums (active+standby). e.g:
- Fiber/HDSL etc.
Features & Highlights:
High density protection switching equipment (upto 16 E1 Links;
i.e. 48 E1 Ports)
To provide an independent point-to-point, protected E1 Llink
between two “E1 USER PORTS” on similar (example fiber-fiber), or
dissimilar (fiber-radio) mediums
To provide 1+1 E1 redundancy
Remote system configuration and management interface through "CLI"
text based commands using Telnet and GUI (Graphical User
Provide 1+1 Protection Routing / Path between BSC and BTS
These ensure that mission critical voice, data, control and
