VCL-Safecomm-E, 1+1 Automatic Ethernet Protection / Ethernet Failover / AB Fallback Switch

Description

VCL-SafeComm-E is a family of Ethernet Failover Protection Switches that provide 1+1 Automatic Ethernet Failover / AB Fallback Protection between an "active” and "standby" equipment; or between “main” and “standby” networks which are connected to the network through an Ethernet interface.

Summary - Flyer SafeComm-E

VCL-SafeComm-E is available in 3 versions:

Salient features:

  • Fail-Safe. The equipment never becomes a point of failure. It automatically reverts to and reconnects the “primary network” / even in a power down condition.
  • The Ethernet Failover equipment monitors end-to-end link connectivity.
  • Number of interfaces available in Fast Ethernet version: Three
    • 1 x 10/100 Ethernet Interface: Network A (Primary)/
    • 1 x 10/100 Ethernet Interface: Network B (Standby)
    • 1 x 10/100 Ethernet Interface User (Protected)
  • Number of interfaces available in Gigabit Ethernet version: Three
    • 1 x 100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Interface: Network A (Primary)
    • 1 x 100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Interface: Network B (Standby)
    • 1 x 100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Interface User (Protected)
  • 1+1 AC or DC power supply available in 19 Inch Rack Mount version.

Use Case # 1: The VCL-SafeComm-E, Ethernet Failover equipment provides 1+1 Automatic Ethernet Failover Switching / Fallback Protection between two, Main and Standby Switches, Servers, RTUs or any other similar terminals to provide equipment redundancy in applications which require 99.99% terminal equipment up-time. The Ethernet 1+1 fail-over protection automatically switches to the “standby” terminal equipment in the event of failure of the “primary” terminal equipment to ensure that the 99.99% terminal equipment up-time requirements are always being met.

Use Case # 2: The VCL-SafeComm-E, Ethernet Failover equipment provides 1+1 Automatic Ethernet Failover / AB Fallback Switch provides protection between an "active” and "standby" IP / Ethernet / MPLS Networks (including "active” and "standby" Gateways and Routers) to provide 1+1 automatic ethernet fail-over protection between two distinctly separate networks through an ethernet interface.

VCL-SafeComm-EN, Automatic Ethernet Failover / AB Fallback Switch

VCL-SafeComm-E is a family of Ethernet Protection Equipment that provide 1+1 Automatic Ethernet Failover / AB Fallback Protection between an "active” and "standby" IP / Ethernet / MPLS Networks or between (Main and Standby) Equipment i.e. Routers, Servers, Switches, RTUs, Data Terminal (any type of Ethernet device) to provide 1+1 Automatic Ethernet fail-over protection / Equipment which is connected to the network through an Ethernet interface.

VCL-SafeComm-E is available in two variants (with 19 Inch rack-mount version).

1. VCL-SafeComm-EN
2. VCL-SafeComm-EF

VCL-SafeComm-EN provides 1+1 Automatic Ethernet Failover /AB Fallback Protection between two, IP / Ethernet / MPLS Networks (Primary and Standby Networks). The VCL- SafeComm-EN can be used to provide protection between two IP / Ethernet / MPLS networks across diverse domains such as fiber-radio; or fiber-satellite; or fiber-PSDN (Public Switched Data Network) to provide automatic fail-over protection to the “standby” network in the event of failure of the “primary” network. The solution provides various user-programmable switching criteria options. The equipment is “Fail-Safe” and never becomes a point-of-failure, even in power down condition.

  • Fail-Safe. Never becomes a point of failure. Automatically reverts to and reconnects the “primary network” / even in a power down condition.
  • End-to-End network Link monitoring
  • Number of Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces: 3
    • 1 x 10/100 Ethernet Interface: Network A (Primary)
    • 1 x 10/100 Ethernet Interface: Network B (Standby)
