Media Links MD8000-100G delivers 10x bandwidth increase
As demand surges for higher bandwidth at the network edge in order to transport more and more media channels, Media Links has introduced its new MD8000-100G Edition.
Under the hood of the new MD8000-100G is an integrated 100Gb/s Switch and Network Interface Controller, representing a 10X bandwidth increase from 10Gb/s to 100Gb/s. The Network Interface function supports both long range and extended range optical QSFP28 (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable) 100Gb/s transceivers.
Existing MD8000 customers can install this new solution in field-deployed chassis and it is said to be fully backward compatible with the MD8000 platform’s portfolio of line card products.
The new generation MD8000-100G Edition will allow broadcasters and sports/entertainment producers to transport more media channels than ever before, Media Links says. Whether it’s uncompressed or compressed video, audio, and/or data over IP from remote sporting and entertainment venues to distant production studios, the MD8000-100G is designed to address the ever increasing need for more and more bandwidth at the network edge.
