APPLICATIONS
The RSW-7x00 R-Switch Line of Redundancy Switches may be employed within a DVB broadcast system for a dependable, uninterrupted signal flow in a wide range of redundancy management applications: RSW-7000, in a stand-alone 1+1 IRD redundancy application RSW-7200, in a stand-alone 1+1 Encoder redundancy application RSW-7200, in a NMS-4000 controlled Multiplexers redundancy application RSW-7200/R, in a stand-alone 1+1 DSNG redundancy application RSW-7200/O, in a stand-alone 1+1 MCPC redundancy application.

1.2.1.

1+1 IRD Redundancy Application


The CODICO RSW-7000 Redundancy Switch is a Hot Switch Over, without effecting the service, featuring configurable switching time. Figure 1-2 illustrates an RSW-7000 R-Switch controlling a 1+1 IRD Redundancy Transport Stream Output application. At power-up, the R-Switch monitors the GPI Status from both IRDs, selecting the IRD-A (default) as the Active device output. Should a failure be detected in the active IRD-A, the RSW-7000 receives a failure status report over the GPI Dry Contacts and sends a switching command (over GPI) to the IRDs. The IRD-A outputs are disconnected and the IRD-B device is selected as the Active device. An alarm is activated that can be manually reset when the fault is corrected and IRD-A is ready for operation. However, switching to IRD-A will be done only when a failure is detected in the currently Active IRD (meaning IRD-B). The GPI command can be pre-set in the IRD for several alarm conditions. The user can reconfigure the IRD, according to his specific requirements.

Optical MCPC Multiplexing Redundancy Application


Figure 1-6 displays a typical application of the RSW-7200/O R-Switch. Two Multiplexer units (MUX1, Main and MUX2, Redundancy) receive several transport streams and generate two ASI level MCPC streams over fiber-optical cables. The resulting streams are provided to the R-Switch, as follows: ASI1 (MAIN) optical stream is provided, via an IRD-2800 Integrated Receiver Decoder, which checks the stream information to the main input (IN-1) on the RSW-7200/O. ASI2 (BkUp) optical stream is provided directly to the backup input (IN-2) on the switch. The ASI level output of the R-Switch is provided over a fiber-optic cable to the ATM Network. The input switching operation of the RSW-7200/OPT is controlled over GPI lines received as follows: The ASI1 (MAIN) input stream is switched to the output when both MUX1 and IRD-2800 generate correct operation GPI control signals (GPI1 OK). The ASI2 (BkUp) input stream is switched to the output when any of the MUX1 or IRD-2800 does not generate correct operation GPI control a signals (GPI1 NOT-OK). MUX2 generates the respective correct operation signal (GPI2 OK).

ARCHITECTURE AND OPERATING MODE


The R-Switch line provides for stand-alone redundancy management applications as well as for network managed applications. The following sub-paragraphs describe the architecture of a typical redundancy system and describe the operating mode of the redundancy application, for either stand-alone systems as well as for remotely managed systems

1.3.1.

Stand-Alone Redundancy Management


In a stand-alone configuration, the R-Switch receives inputs from two devices and provides one output for broadcast. One device (Device A by default) is set as Active, and the second device (Device B) is set as Standby. The R-Switch performs continual checks on the status reports provided on the GPI Dry Contacts of both devices, determining their state of operation over time. Upon signal failure or malfunction in Device A, the R-Switch changes Device B to be the Active device with little or no interruption in the transmission. Switching between the devices activates an alarm that can be manually deactivated when the failure is corrected. Once the R-Switch has determined that the recovered device has stabilized, the status indicator for Device A will display OK instead of FAIL. Yet, returning Device A to OK status does not return Device A to the status of Active. The switched status (Device B as Active and Device A as Standby) is kept until a failure is detected in the currently active device (Device B) and then the R-Switch switches again between the devices.

1.3.2.

Network Redundancy Management


When the R-Switch is remotely controlled by the NMS-4000 Network Management System, the NMS monitors and controls the operation of all elements in the system and redundancy switching is activated by the NMS when required.

Interconnecting Cabling Installation


1+1 Decoders Redundancy Installation
The RSW-7000 Redundancy Switch receives the input signal from both IRD A (Decoder #0) and IRD B (Decoder #1) and transmits the output signal from the active signal only. The cables for the audio are connected from the audio outlets of the decoders to the Auxiliary plug on the switch. This set of cables also includes the cable for the control signal from the decoders, sent from the GPI outlet to the switch. The DATA signal is transmitted from the data outlet on the decoders to the Data In plug on the RSW-7000. The ASI signal is transmitted from the ASI1/2 outlet of the decoders to the ASI1/2 inputs on the RSW-7000. The video signal is transmitted from the CVBS-1/2A and CVBS-1/2B output to the assigned inputs on the RSW-7000. Figure 2-1 displays a typical interconnection of two decoders to the RSW-7000 Redundancy Switch. Table 2-1 describes the cables required for the interconnection.
