Booth SU3324 Media Links is showcasing its family of 100G media-centric IP switches. The MDX100G switching family addresses the growth and new norm of both time sensitive “video/audio
data” as well as non-real-time data traffic across professional media tuned IP networks for live, high-profile news, entertainment and sporting events.
The MDX100G switches deliver high port density enabling facilities to operate at any scale while reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity. They also target the market demand for unidirectional and bidirectional multicast media and data, especially for remote production and WAN applications.
Network architecture utilizing these switches can support seamless protection switching (SPS) for more reliable and robust transport performance, a feature conventional network switch architecture does not typically accommodate, according to the company. MDX100G switches are designed for aggregating multicast media streams whether compressed, uncompressed, unidirectional or bidirectional.
