Media Links Supports Remote Production With 100 GB/s To The Edge

Media Links, a provider of media over IP transport technology, is introducing its new MD8000-100G Edition, an integrated 100Gb/s Switch and Network Interface Controller, to meet the demand for higher bandwidth at the network edge in order to help customers transport more media channels.

The new MD8000-100G represents a 10X bandwidth increase from 10Gb/s to 100Gb/s. The Network Interface function supports both long range and extended range optical QSFP28 (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable) 100Gb/s transceivers.

The MD8000-100G Edition will allow broadcasters and sports/entertainment producers across the globe to transport more media channels than ever before. Whether its uncompressed or compressed video, audio, and/or data over IP from remote sporting and entertainment venues to distant production studios, the MD8000-100G addresses the need for more and more bandwidth at the network edge.

Even at 100Gb/s, Media Links‘ solutions can all be hitlessly/seamlessly protected, providing disturbance-free, uninterrupted media (video, audio, data) transport across wide area networks.

Existing MD8000 customers can install this new solution in field-deployed chassis’ and it is fully backward compatible with the MD8000 platform’s extensive portfolio of line card products.
