Combination: Statmux Node Redundancy with MPTS Output Redundancy - AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3

Combination: Statmux Node Redundancy with MPTS Output Redundancy

This section applies only to deployments that include at least one AWS Elemental Statmux node separate from the nodes.

You can combine Statmux node redundancy with Multiple Program Transport Stream (MPTS) output redundancy: Two different MPTS outputs (on different AWS Elemental Statmux nodes) create the same MPTS output. Furthermore, each different MPTS output is delivered to more than one destination. But the delivery points for the first MPTS are identical to the delivery points for the second MPTS.

Typically, this configuration is used when the downstream system is capable of managing input redundancy (where the content is “input” from the point of view of the downstream system): the downstream system is capable of selecting from multiple inputs (where the content is “input” from the point of view of the downstream system) on multiple interfaces.

This setup combines node redundancy with network failure redundancy around the delivery of MPTS output.

Notice how MPTS1 is delivering content to the first switch over G4 and the identical content to the second switch via G5. Meanwhile, MPTS2 is delivering the identical content to the same switches over G6 and G7. The downstream system can retrieve this content via G4 or G6 at the first switch or (if the first switch is not available) via G5 or G7 at the second switch.

Procedure

  • Configure Statmux redundancy as described in the procedure in Statmux Node Redundancy. Configure the two MPTS outputs so that their destination 1 fields point to the same IP address and their destination 2 fields point to the same IP address.

  • Configure MPTS output redundancy as described in the procedure in MPTS Output Redundancy.
