The Replication Mode parameter is used to define the algorithm that will be used to select a point code/subsystem from the list of available point codes/subsystems. Values for this parameter are selected from a drop-down list. The Replication Mode parameter can take on the following values:

Replicate mode Description
DOMINANT In this mode, each backup node/subsystem is assigned a unique priority. The node/subsystem on this route is the primary node/subsystem and is selected as the preferred node/subsystem when accessible. On failure of the preferred node/subsystem the next higher priority available backup node/subsystem is selected as the preferred node/subsystem.
LOADSHARE In this mode, each backup node/subsystem together with the node/subsystem configured on the route is assigned equal priority and load is distributed among nodes/subsystems on the basis of: 1) SLS for class1 traffic, and 2) in round-robin fashion for class 0 traffic. Loadshare mode is applicable in TELCORDIA only.
DOMINANT_ALTERNATE This mode is significant only for class 0 traffic. In this mode, class 0 traffic is prevented from reaching an accessible but congested node. For class 1 traffic, this mode is same as DOMINANT mode. In this mode, each backup node/subsystem is assigned a unique priority. The node/subsystem configured on the route is selected as the primary node/subsystem and is the preffered node/subsystem when accessible and not congested. On failure or congestion of the preferred node/subsystem the next higher priority available and uncongested backup node/subsystem is selected as the preferred node/subsystem. This mode of operation is applicable only in ANSI96 and TELCORDIA.
LOADSHARE_ALTERNATE This mode is significant only for class 0 traffic. In this mode, class 0 traffic is prevented from reaching an accessible, but congested node. For class 1 traffic, this mode is same as LOADSHARE mode. In this mode, each backup node/subsystem together with the node/subsystem configured on the route is assigned equal priority and load is distributed among nodes/subsystems on the basis of: 1) SLS for class 1 traffic, and 2) in round-robin fashion for class 0 traffic. For class 0 traffic, a node/subsystem is selected when it is accessible and uncongested. On failure or congestion of the node, next available and uncongested node/subsystem is selected. This mode of operation is applicable only in TELCORDIA.
