IP networks provide us with untold flexibility, but this flexibility presents us with interesting challenges of control. Developments in SDN (software defined networks) are leading the way through the separation of the control and data plane. And as we discover more of what SDN means, we soon realize that broadcasters are closer than they may think in achieving its operation.
This Core Insight answers the questions of what it means to control an IP network, how we achieve it, and why. By comparison to existing SDI and AES systems we present an intuitive understanding of IP routing and demonstrate the flexibility IP networks offer.
Sponsored by TSL Professional Products, a unique case study demonstrates how a cost-effective IP network solution was built for Power Station at Berklee NYC. Key IP decisions are discussed, and the development of the software control layer is described.
Download this Core Insight today if you want to understand how IP routing works and how broadcasters are benefitting greatly from the abstraction of the software control layer from the data plane.
Aimed at managers, business analysts, technologists and engineers looking to expand their knowledge of IP routing, this Core Insight provides practical information and advice from the teams who have made these systems work.
