Artel’s Quarra PTP IP switches. 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 ST 2059, the Quarra carrier-class PTP IP switch provides highly accurate timing for video over IP and supports SMPTE ST 2110.
Layer 2 and Layer 3 Switching
The SMART Media Delivery Platform includes Layer 2 and Layer 3 technology for true data switching and routing capabilities.
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.
