MediorNet Modular allows the customers to configure the mainframe to their requirements. The frame can be filled with various Media and Link cards, as needed for the specific application.
All modules and cards are hot swappable. Redundant power supplies guarantee maximum reliability. The optimized cooling concept of MediorNet results in a very low-noise system. The horizontal air ow within the device allows for effective cooling without the need for additional rack space below or above the MediorNet mainframe.
MediorNet frames can be rack mounted in various positions, e.g. with all connectors on the front or on the rear side, or recessed to allow cabling from the front but without connectors or cables exceeding the rack’s dimensions. The IEC connectors can be located front or rear independent from the other cabling.
MediorNet offers Link Cards with and without integrated CWDM multiplexing to network MediorNet mainframes with a bandwidth of up to 76.5 Gbit/s on a single fiber link.
MediorNet‘s standard fiber transceivers have an optical budget of 18 dB minimum, allowing for distances of up to 40 km (25 miles). A MediorNet fiber link always consists of duplex fiber to allow bi-directional signal transport. MediorNet CWDM Link Cards can also include external optical signals and transport them transparently through the system. All MediorNet Link Cards provide signal monitoring and link status information, which can be monitored via status LEDs and system wide via the MediorWorks software and SNMP network management systems.
MediorNet Mainframes can be easily configured with the input and output cards needed for a specific installation.
All Media Cards support multiple video standards and on-board signal processing and conversion, reducing the number of individual cards to a minimum. These signal standards and processing features can be updated via software, securing the hardware investment for future development.
