ARG Switches Quarra 10100 New1 Gbps PTP Switches
The ARG Quarra range of switches is designed for Carrier Class applications where accurate timing and control is required. These switches are aimed at the professional markets of Audio/Video Broadcast, Defense & Security, Finance, Utilities, Telecom, and Enterprise IT. Designed as either a standard 1RU rackmount unit with dual power supplies, or a half-width 1RU unit with a single power supply, the switches are available in several configurations of 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit interfaces, supporting a best-in-class layer 2 IEEE 1588v2 algorithm. A 1pps external reference input from GPS is included as standard, and options include an internal layer 1 Synchronous Ethernet module as well as an internal GPS module requiring only a suitable antenna. The switches support IGMP v2/3, QoS, protection switching, VLAN, MEF service delivery and network OAM.
