Difference between alternate routing and diverse routing:
What is alternate routing and diverse routing?
Alternative routing is the method of routing information via an alternative medium, such as copper cable or fiber optics.
Alternate routing can be further bifurcated in two types:
Last mile circuit protection:
Last mile circuit protection provides redundancy for local communication loop.
Long haul network diversity:
Long haul network diversity provides redundancy for long distance availability.
Diverse routing is the method of routing traffic through split-cable facilities or duplicate-cable facilities.
