Antenna Redundancy Solution for Multiple Antennas Serving an n+1 Configuration

High uptime is critical for most satellite ground station signals. Failure of a single device in the transmission chain can disrupt large arrays of service. This creates the need for a smart, automated, backup protection system.

To meet application-specific requirements for satellite earth stations and L-band distribution systems, redundancy switches offer important advantages for operators. A single motorized antenna can serve an entire dish farm as a backup antenna protecting multiple primary dishes. Signal monitoring, control and switching of a backup antenna can be offloaded to a redundancy switch to secure a cost-effective, simple-to-use solution offering a highly robust redundancy system.
