English term or phrase:nailed up
All IP traffic is defined as interesting. This will reset the idle timeout and keep the connection up until the primary comes back up. If you do not require the backup link to be nailed up, you can change this.
Explanation: Arrghh, just lost my connection, but had managed to copy this but not the URL :( Hope it helps (Double Dutch to me, lol)
So far, the data guys in the crowd are thinking this looks quite similar to a data network, and they'd be right. The differences occur when people need to talk. In a data network, a subscriber wanting to talk to another subscriber would drop a packet on the wire with a destination address of the other party. The packet would flow, hop by hop, over the network until received at the other end. We call this packet switched because each packet is switched from the ingress interface of a device to an egress interface closer to the destination. Voice networks, however, are circuit switched, which means that a bidirectional connection has to be nailed up from the source to the destination before people can talk.
