4. Control Plane High Availability

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>The explosion of technology and the worlds dependence on it means that the reliability of a network is incredibly important. As the bits and bytes carried across networks become more valuable, the high availability of these networks is more relevant than ever. The revenue stream of a major financial customer who purchases managed virtual private network (VPN) services from a global ISP depends on the networks availability. When the chairman of the Federal Reserve finally delivers good news after weeks of market turmoil, news that sparks a buying frenzy, older peering routers at the providers Point of Presence (POP) could get overloaded. This strain on the older devices could, in turn, ramp up the CPU, causing the routing protocols to fail, which in turn would delay market orders, causing the loss of millions of dollars.</p><p>At the same time, in another part of town, another customer of the ISP is experiencing issues. A hospitals ER department needs to access a patients medical records to prescribe appropriate medication. Because of the nature of the medication, access to the patients medical history is imperative. Time is ticking and, all of a sudden, the ER loses access to the central database. The local IT department reports that the core network router has crashed, and meanwhile the patient is suffering.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/364053-junos-high-availability-best-practices-for-high-network-uptime">See more</a>

Line Avoidance

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>To make your bot stay in the arena, you must teach it to avoid a black line. Then you can build an arena with big white paper as the floor and black tape as the border.</p><p>Lets connect the reflection sensor to Arduino. Prepare the cable by cutting the end that doesnt fit to the sensor. In our case, the small white connector fit to the sensor and we left it in place. The big black connector didnt fit anywhere, so we cut it away. Strip the free wires for connecting to Arduino (Figure2-6).</p><p>Figure2-6.Stripped sensor wire</p><p>Connect free sensor wires to Arduino as shown in the circuit diagram for <em>helloreflection.pde</em> (Figure2-7). Connect the red plus wire to +5V, and the black ground wire to GND. Connect the green data wire to D4. (Figure2-8). Use the ScrewShield to keep the wires in place (Figure2-9).</p><p>Figure2-7.Circuit diagram for helloreflection.pde</p><p>Figure2-8.Reflection sensor connected</p><p>Figure2-9.Free wires connected to Arduino with ScrewShield</p><p>For line avoidance, we use a typical reflectivity sensor.
