Besides its advanced network functionalities, Falcon also provides the Network with full redundancy. In addition to redudant PSUs, network interfaces and controller cards, powerful error correction and ultra-fast protection switching on service level prevents against outages and impairment of services in case of network failures, Falcon can also be equipped with seamless ASI protection switch cards as well, which makes it a perfect solution for a redundant network.
