Redundancy within a data network focused on digital audio transport has specific requirements compared to redundancy for usual data networks, and for this reason several practical solutions offer dual network ports. Ideas and solutions from current formats will be presented, detailing requirements of specific use cases, such as digital audio transport for live events or for install. The discussion will also include non-IP audio networks; different topologies, and switchover issues will be presented.
