Matrix: I am using both Fiber and IP trunklines, which one has higher priority?

Question: What is the priority for how different trunkline interfaces (Fiber, E1 and IP)  are used first in a networked system?
Answer:  Clear-Com can provide a number of different trunking options between frames. The priority of which trunk interface is used first is listed below 
Interface                             +++++++ Fibre      - UsedfirstE1/T1MADI  / Dante
MVX (4wire)IP            - Usedlast
Please note, the trunk type is the second consideration,we always favour a route that uses the lowest number of trunk first i.e. wewould use a single IP trunk over two MADI hops.
