Once defined a default route, it is possible to stablish the switching criteria -or set of them- that the Compact SAE 10GbE 1+1 Optical adapter takes into account before placing traffic on the alternative route. The options available are as follows:
• LOS (Loss of signal). Loss of signal at the RX port of the optical transceiver.
• Optical power received at the RX port of the optical transceiver defined below.
• Errors per second. When it reaches the pre-configured threshold for one or more of the following errors: CRC, wrong size frame, fragments or reception of smaller frames than standard, and code symbols Disparity
The response time to such events will never be greater than 50ms.
In addition, Compact SAE 10GbE 1+1 has the following policies of redundancy in case of fail of the main fiber: reversible switching (back to the main route in recovery), non-reversible (staying in the switched path to new switching event on the route) and forced commutation (always same path, independent of the events).
