RapidRing Managed Switch Redundancy Options

RapidRing® is a new technology from CTRLink that provides redundancy for Ethernet networks. The CTRlink series of managed switches provides two types of redundancy options.



RapidRing® Redundancy:

Rapid Ring Example
  • Allows switched networks to be wired in a ring utilizing fiber or copper.
  • Any break in the ring will be recovered in less than 300ms (with up to 20 switches).
  • Relay contacts, flashing LEDs and SNMP traps help to quickly identify broken links.
  • Supports dual ring structures.

    See the tutorial and info sheet for more information.


Trunking Redundancy:

trunking example
  • Any break in the trunk will be recovered in less than 10ms.
  • Relay contacts, flashing LEDs and SNMP traps help to quickly identify the broken links.
  • Trunking also provides more bandwidth between switches
