I have deployed uBR10012 configuration, and the customer curios about protection module (for failover purpose).
on RFSwitch there are protection slot, one to the CMTS and the other to Cable Plant.
The question is :
1. rite now, protection cable that goes from RF Switch to cable plant not connected to the HFC Cloud. How the failover procedure goes ? is it we have to connect / combine all the interface to this protection slot, so protection slot from RFSwitch can aware / redirect traffic as soon as there a failure on HFC Cloud ?
2. uBR10012 connected to RFSwitch and module 5/1 act as protect card. Example : 6/0 down, both CMTS and RFSwitch redirect traffic to 5/1. Is the RF Switch can working like "6/0 cmts down, failover to protect card 5/1, RFSwitch still continue patching from 5/1 traffic goes to 6/0 to cable plant" ?
