Peripheral ERPS Network over Fiber
In any work where downtime of even a few seconds can be critical, ERPS can be the most cost-effective way to add redundancy and up-time protection to your network. Network switches are connected in a closed loop, and traffic will be redirected in the case of a link failure to ensure continuous network connectivity for mission-critical applications. And when the failed point is restored, the failover link will be automatically closed. Compared with RSTP (recovery time≅2s), ERPS also has a faster convergence time under 50 msec, which greatly improve network resilience. Fastcabling has also launched a series of L2+ industrial fast ring managed network switches that support a fast recovery time of less than 20 msec, making them ideal for industries such as surveillance systems, automated production lines, mining, oil and gas, and waste management.
