Survivability Power

Redundant Power Supplies


Typically Power Supplies Can Work in Parallel and If One
Fails the Load Is Just Redistributed to the Working PSs
(n+1 Redundancy)
Fans Are Typically the Component with the Lower MTBF
and Need to Be Monitored
Uninterruptible Power Supplies
Provide AC Power from Internal Battery Via Inverter
Cover a PC, Server, Telephony System
Require Ongoing Maintenance
Provide Resiliency Against Power Failures, Brownouts,
Spikes

Survivability Power
DC Plants
Cover Entire Sites
Provide Resiliency Against Power Failures, Brownouts,
Spikes
HiPath 4000
Provides Redundant Power Supplies on a Shelf Level
Supports DC Plants
Monitors Fan Speed
Generates HW Alarms in Case of Failures

Survivability Disasters
Protecting Against Disasters
Flooding, Fire, Earthquakes, Tornados, Hurricanes,
Terrorist Attacks Can Take Out an Entire Building
and with It the Telephony Infrastructure
Facts
IP Based Systems Provide Much Greater Flexibility Than
Analog and Digital Based Systems
IP Endpoints Can Re-register
with a Different Server if the Main Fails
Digital and Analog Subscribers
Are Tied to a Fixed Location
Solutions
Distribute the System into Different Buildings/Locations
Provide Trunking at Each Location

Survivability Card Level Failure

Protecting Against Peripheral Card Failure


Digital/Analog Card Failure
There Is No Automated Recovery Possible Except
Replacing the Failed Component

Trunk Card Failure


In HiPath Systems If a Trunk Card Fails, the System
Automatically Switches to the Next Available Trunk Group
(Network Wide)

IP Subscriber Card Failure


Standby GW Cards Can Take Over
and Provide Automated Recovery
A Single Card Can Be the Backup for Many Cards
Which Is Very Cost Effective

IP Phones Take No Action, the Standby GW Takes


on the Personality of the Failed GW

Switchover to Standby Line Gateway
in Case of Failure Is Supported in
Either Host or Remote Site
A Single Card Can Be the Backup

IP Subscriber Card Failure
Secondary GWs (Duplicated Infrastructure)
Can Be Activated When HW Fails
Secondary GWs Typically Are Deployed at a Physical
Different Location Which Provides Protection Against
Disasters
IP Phones Actively Switch Over to a Second Registrar
(Secondary GW) in Case Connection
to the Primary Registrar Is Lost
