Switching & Routing

Media Transport

Artel has built into the DigiLink DL4360x and InfintyLink IL6000 chassis an internal routing capability that allows users to remotely route native video and Ethernet traffic from module to module without the need of external connections of routers. Creating a simplified media transport solution with integrated routing significantly lowers costs, increases reliability, and eliminates conversion latency. The internal routing and switching in our chassis reduce operational and capital expenses by eliminating the need for additional equipment and reducing truck rolls to address a change in transport requirements. Embedding DL-Manager, a simple on-board HTTP and SNMP management systems into the DigiLink switch module (or IL Manager integrated into the InfinityLink chassis) enables anyone with access to a web browser to route video and Ethernet, change functions and features, and monitor the chassis. For maximum flexibility, multiple I/O modules can be deployed in the DigiLink and InfinityLink systems to create space-efficient optical and electrical video routers.  

PTP Timing

Artel offers a full-line of Quarra PTP IP switches from ARG Electrodesign. Utilizing Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to IEEE 1588v2, Quarra switches offer some of the lowest latency and most accurate timing for audio over IP solutions and are AES67 compliant.  Fully compliant to SMPTE 2059, the Quarra carrier-class PTP IP switch provides highly accurate timing for video over IP and is fully compliant to SMPTE 2059, which is utilized by the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS). 

IP Streaming

Artel offers solutions for low-cost contribution over IP. The ARG 8000 ARQ Automatic Repeat Request is a simple-to-configure solution for the distribution of high-quality video over unconditioned IP networks, including wireless, the internet, and satellite.
