Intelligent Protection (A/B Switches)

Ensuring network resiliency and reliability continues to be a requirement even with the advent of the highly reliable IP router-based technology. A primary means of guaranteeing reliable and resilient networks is through the use of intelligent protection switches (A/B switches). Unlike many manufacturers who have moved away from these inexpensive workhorses of data connectivity, Cornet Switching Systems continues to invest in adapting this technology to accommodate all of the latest interfaces and environments.

    FBS 16/32 – Fallback Switch

    For the budget-minded, the FBS 16/32 switches offer most of the functionality of the IPS 16/32 switches, however it is copper based only.  These versatile switches are designed to locally or remotely switch an extensive range of electrical interfaces for datacom, telecom, and LAN topologies.

    IPS 16/32 and IPS RC (Redundant Controller)

    The compact IPS 16/32 high bit-rate, high-bandwidth A/B switches are the mainstay of the product family. Latching relays ensure connections are not lost during power failure. Rear-mounting interface modules allow for a wide range of interfaces – eliminating the need for adapters. Perfect for multi-interface environments, IPS units accommodate fiber, datacom, T1/E1, Analog/VF, balance electrical, coaxial electrical and optical signal types – all in the same 4U (7”H) chassis.

    RPS-24 (Router Protection Switch)

    The RPS-24 is an intelligent protection switch targeted at backing up routers in dark or dim sites where continuous up-time is critical and rack space is at a premium. The 24-port design closely matches the number of inputs on a standard router. These reliable switches use proven latching relay technology to ensure that connectivity is maintained even in the event of a complete power failure.
