Title (EN) SWITCH MATRIX WITH ACTIVE AND SPARE SECOND PORTS AND CONNECTION OF A FIRST PORT FROM AN ACTIVE SECOND PORT TO A SPARE SECOND PORT ON REDUCED PERFORMANCE ON THE SECOND ACTIVE PORT
(FR) MATRICE DE COMMUTATEURS AYANT DES SECONDS PORTS ACTIFS ET DE RÉSERVE ET UNE CONNEXION D'UN PREMIER PORT À PARTIR D'UN SECOND PORT ACTIF À UN SECOND PORT DE RÉSERVE SUR DES PERFORMANCES RÉDUITES SUR LE SECOND PORT ACTIF
Abstract:
(EN) A method of operating an RF system, the method including controlling coupling and uncoupling of RF ports included in an M by N radio frequency (RF) switch matrix including N first-side RF ports and M second-side RF ports, wherein each of the first-side RF ports may be selectively coupled to at least one of two or more of the second-side RF ports, such that RF signals are carried between selectively coupled ports; identifying one or more of the second-side RF ports as active ports, the active ports including a first active port; causing the RF switch matrix to couple the first active port to a first signal port included in the first-side RF ports; obtaining a first indication of reduced performance for a first piece of RF communication equipment coupled to the first active port; and causing, in response to the first indication, the RF switch matrix to couple the first signal port to a first spare port, wherein the first spare port is included in the second- side RF ports and is not included in the active ports.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de fonctionnement d'un système RF, le procédé consistant à commander un couplage et un découplage de ports RF inclus dans une matrice de commutateurs radiofréquence (RF) M par N comprenant N ports RF de premier côté et M ports RF de second côté, chacun des ports RF de premier côté pouvant être couplé de manière sélective à au moins l'un d'au moins deux des ports RF de second côté, de telle sorte que des signaux RF sont transportés entre des ports couplés de manière sélective; à identifier un ou plusieurs des ports RF de second côté en tant que ports actifs, les ports actifs comprenant un premier port actif; à amener la matrice de commutateurs RF à coupler le premier port actif à un premier port de signal inclus dans les ports RF de premier côté; à obtenir une première indication de performances réduites pour un premier élément d'équipement de communication RF couplé au premier port actif; et à amener, en réponse à la première indication, la matrice de commutateurs RF à coupler le premier port de signal à un premier port de réserve, le premier port de réserve étant inclus dans les ports RF de second côté et n'étant pas inclus dans les ports actifs.
