Multi Channel ASI Redundancy Switch

The Problem
A lot of signal transmission systems require a very
high uptime. In case of a defect – i.e. if a signal
transmitter breaks down – it is essential to solve
this problem fast and efficiently, so that the end
user does not notice the defect at all. Precautions
on behalf of the provider, e.g. spare instruments in
“hot standby” are necessary to avoid the worst
case scenario.

DEV Systemtechnik worked out a solution
To solve this problem and to ensure that the
network providers have a high level availability of
their signals, DEV Systemtechnik has developed
the Multi Channel 1 to 1 Redundancy Switch
1820/xx for ASI data streams.

                                                                  The Technical Concept
