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 Technology continues to invest in adapting this technology to accommodate all of the latest interfaces and environments.

Intelligent Protection Uses:

  • Automatic Fallback Switching
  • Ethernet Hub Redundancy
  • FEP/Router Sparing
  • Remote Site Management
  • Anti-Hacking Switching
  • SCADA Backup

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. FBS 16/32 Application Fallback switches such as the FBS 16/32 are essential … Continue reading FBS 16/32 – Fallback Switch
