Enhanced Redundancy Solutions with the OrionLX+
The five Ethernet ports on the OrionLX+, all on separate NICs, open up more solutions for redundancy. For example: two dedicated, and redundant, Ethernet networks can serve as the “Redundancy Link” between Primary OrionLX+ and Secondary OrionLX+, leaving three remaining Ethernet networks for WAN and LAN. Either, or both of these links can also be fiber optic. See figure below.
Integrated System: Cascaded Orions and Orion Redundancy
Cascaded Orions and Orion Redundancy now can work together as one integrated system, further simplifying system architecture and operation. Cascading enables a single NCD file to be developed for multiple Orions, and eliminates points mapping between one Orion and another.
