HotSwap allows you to designate a network connection as a back-up. If your primary network fails, your codec will automatically engage the back-up network. Fall-over is immediate and seamless, so your listeners won’t be able to tell that anything has happened.
In radio, there are no do-overs. With HotSwap, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll stay online even if something goes wrong.
Unlike a redundant stream, where data is sent on two networks simultaneously, HotSwap only engages your secondary network if your primary network fails. That means less data used, and major savings.
As an enhancement to our CrossLock VPN Technology, HotSwap now ships with all new purchases of ACCESS and BRIC-Link as standard.
Some older Comrex IP audio codecs can update to firmware v4.3 and higher to take advantage of HotSwap. Visit the Support page to access most current firmware. Comrex tech support is available during business hours to assist.
