The French National Assembly has installed a comprehensive, all-fiber signal distribution and communications backbone based on Riedel Communications solutions.
"Riedel's MediorNet is a radical departure from the traditional approach to signal transport, which is built around a central router and third-party transport and processing devices. Instead, the decentralized approach of MediorNet provides massive benefits including redundancy, flexibility, and the ability to scale the system as our needs dictate," said Christian Castelli, Audiovisual System Engineer at the French National Assembly. "For those reasons, MediorNet was the perfect choice to meet our complex media distribution and communications requirements."
The deployment of this agile infrastructure was a core component in the complete upgrade of the audio/visual master control room at the French National Assembly. The backbone keeps evolving with the expansion of a new multi-position video control room and the connection of further satellite commission rooms.
The Riedel MediorNet backbone consists of four MetroN core routers, three MediorNet Modular mainframes, more than 30 MicroN high-density media distribution network devices, and 25 Compact stageboxes. Deployed in a decentralized configuration, the MediorNet components ensure fully redundant distribution of all audio/video and communications signals throughout the buildings.
