The entire lines of WoMaster's Ethernet and PoE switches fully support the latest redundancy feature ITU T G.8032 v.2 ERPS
Online PR News – 04-September-2018 – New Taipei – WoMaster adapted the latest international redundancy protocol ITU-T G.8032 v2 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) for all its Ethernet and PoE switches product lines.
ITU-T G.8032 v2 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) is the first industry standard for Ethernet ring protection switching, achieved by integrating mature Ethernet operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM) functions and an automatic protection switching (APS) protocol for Ethernet ring networks.
IDC experts point out the trend of G.8032 v.2 ERPS becoming the most common standard for redundancy on industrial networks and replacing proprietary ring redundancy and standard Ethernet Ring Switching, as it provides stable protection of the entire Ethernet Ring from any loops. With the growth of the network scale, the calculation and response time in case of loop formation increases and could be from 2~120 sec to 5 minutes, and this is completely unacceptable in critical networks where the uninterrupted communication is required. Loops fatally affect network operation and service availability, thus, deploying network equipment with supported ITU-T G.8032 v2 ERPS with less than 50ms recovery time will significantly increase network reliability for critical IIoT applications, such as heavy industrial automation (power substation and oil and gas vertical markets), ITS (traffic control, public transportation), railway networks, and other smart city applications concerning public safety.
G.8032 v1 standard supported single ring topology, whilst G.8032 version 2 additionally features recovery switching for Ethernet traffic in Multiple Ring (ladder) of conjoined Ethernet Rings by one or more interconnections which saves deployment costs by providing wide-area multipoint connectivity with reduced number of links, which is the best solution for complex large-scale industrial networks.
Deploying switches with support of G.8032 v2 ERPS ensures highly resilient Ethernet infrastructure whilst simultaneously saving costs, as they can interoperate with third party switches and still guarantee fast network recovery time without any data loss.
