TDF Group, a French operator and manager of telecommunications and broadcasting infrastructures, secure networks, and connectivity services, has deployed Riedel’s MediorNet MuoN technology in Paris.
Part of a new multi-client, media-over-IP network tailored to meet TDF’s own operational and service workflows, compact MuoN SFPs are enabling the migration from legacy SDI formats, utilizing the SMPTE ST 2110 standard to process uncompressed signals.
Riedel’s SFP-based MediorNet MuoN IP gateways provide multiple practical interfaces for bridging SDI signals into IP. With their small form factor (SFP+, SFP28), the 3G/HD capable MuoN A SFPs can even be installed inside a standard 10GE/25GE IP switch. The software-defined modules are available with a range of different input and output configurations — including BNC, fiber, or HDMI — and can be configured to run encapsulation such as SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2022-6.
TDF’s media-over-IP network not only features MuoN A Series SFPs housed directly in IP switches for HD video resolutions, but also MuoN B Series SFPs being used with Riedel’s VirtU 32 aggregator for high-end UHD video processing. With up to two UHD channels per SFP, the granularity of Riedel’s MediorNet MuoN technology allows TDF to scale its network as needed while decreasing the risks associated with hardware failures. In addition, Riedel’s MuoN technology supports the RESTful API, which made it simple for TDF to tailor the system to its unique needs.
