» Functionality, flexibility, and ease of use are among the many benefits of working with a Riedel Communications signal transport and communications platform. Simply put, Riedel is just better. «

Instead of relying on common star or point-to-point connections, MediorNet uses a combination of electrical time domain multiplexing (TDM) and optical course wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) in a network topology to create a highly reliable fiber backbone for signal distribution and routing. Installed in the Anthem of the Seas Broadcast Control Center (BCC), the fiber-based MediorNet system provides robust routing capabilities, handling all ship video (with the exception of security video), audio, Ethernet, RS control, intercom, and GPI signals. Just eight fiber-optic cables connect 10 additional MediorNet frames distributed throughout the ship to the MediorNet frame in the BCC. Riedel’s MediorWorks software facilitates dynamic assignment of ports with a few mouse clicks.
