Quarra PTP New

1G Compact Ethernet Switch
ARG Quarra 1G Compact PTP Ethernet Switch

Product Details

Artel's Quarra range of IP PTP 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. The Quarra 1G compact switch is a half-width 1RU unit with a single power supply. The switch is available in a 1 Gigabit interface 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. Quarra switches also support IGMP v2/3, QoS, protection switching, VLAN, MEF service delivery and network OAM. 

Quarra switches support SMPTE Standards-based Timing ST 2110-10 and ST 2059-2 SMPTE and are RAVENNA AES67 approved. 

Ideal for:

  • Live video/audio broadcast/production over IP utilizing IEEE1588 timing, QoS and Multicast filtering.
  • Broadcast DTT/DTV IP distribution, utilizing IEEE1588 and SyncE timing to replace or backup GPS timing at base stations.
  • Telecom networks, providing high level of network timing.
  • Financial/trading networks, utilizing our IEEE1588 precise nanosecond time synchronization.

Related products:  Standard 1RU rackmount units with dual power supplies are available in configurations of 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit interfaces,
