Physical Resiliency: Hardening Your Network Through Pathways and Redundancy

  • Thursday, 03/30/2017: 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM
  • Room: S232
  • Session Number:  TH13


Fiber, microwaves and backhaul – do all your pathways go to the same point?  Then you’re not redundant!  Specifying and designing an LMR network backhaul for survivability and system operation requires knowledge of the various contributors to survivability, constraints placed by regulatory requirements and the return on investment for different approaches.  Is it really worth the extra 9’s and costs? What is the practicality of the loading of the structures? Can the structure support a 6-foot dish and at what cost? How do you secure a site from troublesome phenomena such as RFI, EMI, EMP, PIM and lightening? Examine the best ways to harden your network and facilities.
