The EXE3.0 is the next generation core of Evertz’ Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) solutions. The EXE3.0 high capacity switch fabric enables the IP transition with unmatched flexibility and scalability in the industry, providing up to 102Tb/s (in 9RU) of switch capacity to allow media organizations to support up to 16,384 uncompressed 3G (or 4,330 uncompressed 12G–SDI) signals with up to 1024x 10/25/50GbE, 512x 100GbE or 128x 400GbE ports in a single frame.
The EXE3.0 is a format–agnostic IP switch fabric where IP multicasts are switched using MAGNUM–OS orchestration. The EXE3.0 supports IP streams, regardless of the payload: media organizations can switch SMPTE ST 2022–6, ST 2022–2, SMPTE RDD 37 (ASPEN), ST 302, ST 2038, Sony NMI, NewTek NDI, RFC 4175, AES67, PTP, SMPTE ST 2059–2 and all ST 2110 related standards.
The EXE3.0 leverages Software Defined Networking philosophies found in today’s IT environment. The EXE3.0 is an independent data path that is optimized for high capacity and high bandwidth applications (such as live production). The control path is handled by MAGNUM–OS orchestration and control software. EXE3.0 adopts a “floating backplane” architecture, having direct connections between XC and LC boards improves signal integrity, reliability, weight and allows for significant reduction in RU.
With a non–blocking architecture, the EXE3.0 provides guaranteed bandwidth and ultra low latency required in today’s broadcast facility. MAGNUM–OS also allows full control of the EXE-VSR using common control interfaces and panels found in today’s broadcast facilities.
The EXE3.0 redundancy architecture is designed for 24/7/365 operations and offers multiple redundancy strategies that include: redundant crosspoint, redundant line card, path-by-path redundancy, redundant frame controller, power and fans.
The EXE3.0 flexibility allows it to be used by media organizations in multiple configurations. The EXE3.0 is configurable in increments of 128 ports up to 1024 ports that can support data rates of 10/25/50G in port configurations up to 400G.
