Here is a selection of the equipment that we are currently using
Cisco Catalyst 2960X (24 and 48 port POE+)
These switches offer top class performance with all of the features that are required for large scale networks. As well as offering dual 10Gb SFP+ uplinks, all of these switches provide POE+ allowing us to power the latest 802.11AC access points.
Cisco Catalyst 3850X-12 (12 port SFP+)
These switches have 12 SFP+ ports which allow us to build large scale logical star topology networks at 10Gb speeds.
Cisco 4451 ISR Router
These routers are very capable devices that are able to comfortably handle thousands of users at gigabit speeds. Being IOS based, they can be used to provide very reliable bandwidth control and service levels for broadcasters.
Cisco 2802i Access points
These access points are the latest 802.11AC Wave 2 offering from Cisco. They are the ideal choice for High Density networks because of their MU-MIMO technology which allows the radio to serve multiple clients at the same time. They also allow the re-use of redundant 2.4Ghz radios in the 5Ghz band offering further capacity to busy environments.
Symetrix Radius 12×8 Ex
The Symetrix Radius is a 12 in / 8 out DSP processor with full 128 Dante channels. They are equipped with a primary and secondary Dante network for redundancy. These units enable us to send full range audio across gigabit network links for PA systems, recording and comms.
Newtek Talkshow – Skype TX
Skype TX is a product which allows you to bring in Skype callers and other Skype TX units to a production environment. Video and Audio are presented in professional standards such as HD-SDI and XLR as well as NDI and Dante. This is the perfect product for live to screen conference calls and interviews. They can easily be used on 4G and satellite systems.
Open Broadcast Systems
We have built broadcast standard encoders using the Open Broadcast Systems software which allows us to send and receive High definition video across IP networks ready for delivery to content delivery networks and broadcasters. These units are also capable of sending audio and comms across IP links using dedicated XLR in/outs.
These units are perfectly placed for providing audio links for PA as well as comms for broadcast. We have successfully sent full range audio across microwave point to point links for PA requirements.
