Cisco, Snell Team Up on IP-based Signal Routing
LAS VEGAS -- Snell and Cisco today announced plans to enable real-time IP-based signal routing. Integration between Snell’s broadcast infrastructure and imaging expertise and Cisco’s world-leading IP and MPLS networking will be demoed at NAB 2014. The resulting combination of technology could enable broadcasters to exploit the benefits of IP routing without costly investments in proprietary infrastructure.
By deploying world-class, off-the-shelf, enterprise and carrier-grade IP routers, along with broadcast specific solutions from Snell, broadcasters could not only lower their initial investments, but continue benefitting from economies of scale. Unlike traditional broadcast-specific routing technology, IP-based routing costs scale with bandwidth – not with the number of signals supported. IP routing supports multiple signals per port, making the whole system more adaptable and efficient.
