dc.description.abstractPatch panels are still frequently used in telemetry installations as a means for routing signals during and in between missions. These patch panels have been used for decades and have many benefits operationally speaking. Digital switching matrices on the other hand, while very popular in the broadcasting and music industries, are not being fully utilized in the telemetry world. Digital switches offer many of the same benefits of patch panels along with an abundance of added features including signal conversion and distribution. This paper describes the benefits of migrating from patch panels to digital switching matrices. It will discuss both the pros and cons of each technology as well as look at the short term and long term cost implications of each. This paper will also discuss return on investment and operational improvements that can be gained from utilizing digital switching matrices in place of patch panels.
