New white paper: Network redundancy for mission critical applications - HSR and PRP protocols

Why is Network Redundancy important?

Today, network infrastructures not only provide the foundation for regular data transmission. They are also becoming increasingly converged and incorporate a rapidly growing number of different services and functionalities. As a result,  requirements in the areas of network uptime and reliability are increasing significantly. When these requirements touch on mission critical applications, they become a top priority.

The network infrastructure of a mission critical application should be operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It should remain available at all times. Systems of this type are usually installed outside of buildings. They should be built with advanced redundancy and resiliency in mind to ensure extremely short, or even zero, recovery time and zero packet loss – ensuring they remain available no matter what.

As the solution for such critical applications, many related standards require use of HSR and PRP protocols.
