automatically switches to alternate paths on link or node failures enabling
suppliers of Ethernet platforms to provide the resilient connectivity for

backhaul infrastructure equipment.
    The new InterPort Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching software with
full linear protection enables enterprises and carriers to provide resilient
and predictable networking utilizing their existing infrastructure platforms.
