Dear All, Could anyone please tell me the basic and pratical difference between MSP and SNCP?

Also can someone tell me when can we use MSP and when can we go for SNCP?

I know the practical set-up for both but couldn't figure out when to use which one of these two. With advantages and disadvantages of each.

Hope the reader would be clear with my query and will be able to provide me the details.

Thanks for your inputs in advance.

Regards, Ankur

Hello Ankur, You asked: > Could anyone please tell me the basic and pratical difference between > MSP and SNCP? MSP = Multiplex section protection, because Multiplex section, Regenerator section and Optical section are in general 1:1:1 MSP is in general protecting the fibers between two nodes. SNCP = sub-network connection protection, this is in general protection of (a section of) a path in a network and applied to VC-n. > Also can someone tell me when can we use MSP and when can we go for > SNCP? Physcal section and path, as described above.

SNCP can be aplied on a path through a network, passing many nodes.

SNCP is faster than MSP (less switching time). MSP has 16 nodes limit where as no limit for SNCP. Minimum protection unit of SNCP is T1 (or E1) where as for MSP is STM-1 (not sure about SONET). SNCP is always 1+1 (to my knowledge but Huub can verify it) where as MSP can be 1+1 or 1:N. MSP is implemented by switching matrix card where as SNCP is implemented by tributary card.

The requirement is faster than 50 ms for each, it is up to the implementation how fast it actually is. MSP is normally faster because it covers only one section, SNCP covers more sections and experiences more propagation delay. > MSP has 16 nodes limit where as no limit for SNCP. MSP has 2 nodes (yes the APS protocol has space for 16 but that is irrelevant for MSP), MS-SPRing (the ring protection variant of section protection) supports up to 16 nodes. > Minimum protection unit of SNCP is T1 (or E1) This should be VC-11 or VC-12 for SNCP > where as for MSP is STM-1 (not sure about SONET). STM-0 is covered as well, as are the SONET OC-x rates. > SNCP is always 1+1 (to my knowledge but Huub can verify it) SNCP can be 1+1, 1:1, n:m, (1:1)^n, see ITU-T rec. G.808.1 > where as MSP can be 1+1 or 1:N. OK. > MSP is implemented by switching matrix card MSP can be implemented on the line card and in the HO connection function (VC4 switching matrix). > where as SNCP is implemented by tributary card. SNCP is a function supported by the HO connection function (VC-4) and LO connection function (VC-3, VC12, VC11) see the functional models in ITU-T rec. G,783

MSP is harware protection with a standby card while SNCP is a path protection.
