Abstract

Simulcast systems which operate on loop microwave backbones require a high degree of manual diagnostic inter- pretation to determine which path in the loop failed. Once the failed path is known new simulcast equalization adjustments can be implemented for system optimization. Since no automatic detection method exists, automatic simulcast adjustments cannot be made. Manual intervention is required to map the microwave loop failure to new equalization adjustments through a remote control mechanism like Motorola's simulcast PON. The method described provides automatic failure detection and corresponding automatic simulcast equalization adjustments procedures.
