Standby cage does a check to verify it still has communication with other network elements. 2-Very High 20 Calls dropped and no new calls established for up to 30 seconds. Loss of cage redundancyprotection. 6-Significant Effect Operator actions: 1. Lock of active SSC. 2. Rolling upgrade. When new standby SSC comes up, external routes are not set up and the SSC indicates it is ready. HB messages cannot be sent. New active SSC did not send initial HB to standby shelf within 9 seconds. Must set up external routes on standby prior to SSC failover.

The active cage reads the preferredStandbyCage is 0, thus does NOT negotiate with standby. May be more likely as a design/timing issue during standby cage migration (or compaction). Duplicate IP Addresses. Detection Prevention 1-Unlikely Call resources are routed to two separate locations. Call processing resources intermittent or failed. Failed cage remains active Control Type Minimal messaging Overload condition which impacts HB messaging. 1. CDL upload, and 2. software pre-activate. Temporary/intermittent communication loss between standby and active shelf.

3,4 This was probably the first published article on the Six Sigma focus on variance reduction, and it was inspired by the book (mentioned earlier) by Gerald Hahn and Samuel Shapiro. The case studies from this earliest article on Six Sigma and variance reduction are used as examples in the section on variance reduction in Chapter 14 of this book. By 1982, the success stories and statistical classes were being recognized throughout Motorola, and Janet Fiero was promoted to Corporate Director of MTEC (Motorola Training and Education Center) at Motorola’s headquarters in Chicago.
