Fast Failover: Hardware and Software Implementations

In previous blog posts in this series we discussed whether it makes sense to invest into fast failover network designs, the topologies you can use in such designs, and the fault detection techniques. I also hinted at different fast failover implementations; this blog post focuses on some of them.

Hardware-based failover changes the hardware forwarding tables after a hardware-detectable link failure, most likely loss-of-light or transceiver-reported link fault. Forwarding hardware cannot do extensive calculations; the alternate paths are thus usually pre-programmed (more details below).

  1. ‼️US government are giving out Financial Benefits (Financial Support) to citizens and not everyone is aware about this, though not everybody is qualified but how will you know if you qualified without checking.

    Contact an agent for a quick check to know if you qualified for any benefits-:
