PureLink Adds Network Switches to PureStream Line of Video over IP Solutions - VIP-NET 1G & 10G Switches Provide CAT & Fiber Connectivity to IP Video
Posted on Friday, January 13, 2017

PureLink, a leading provider of digital connectivity solutions to  audio/video and IT markets worldwide, announced today the introduction of a new line of network switches purpose-built to enhance performance and simplify management of IP Video matrix switching systems. The new VIP-NET series of switches is offered in 6 different models (four 1G and two 10G), and vary in size from 12 to 48 port, featuring CAT or Fiber combinations. All models offer the ability to interconnect multiple units to create large scale matrices of video inputs and outputs.   

The VIP-NET switch models are designed to seamlessly integrate with the company's PureStream VIP-200 and VIP-100 encoder/decoder modules, providing full HD and UltraHD AV over IP transport and matrixing capabilities. Along with IGMP snooping, Jumbo Frame, VLAN, and L2+ management, the VIP-NET also supports enhanced Ethernet reliability technologies, such as ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching).

The VIP-NET series supports wire-speed replication of multicast packets between VLANs and multicast load balancing among member interfaces of a trunk. These switches integrate the latest advanced networking technologies to deliver additional benefits in terms of reliability, security, and energy savings. PureLink’s VIP-NET switches simplify the installation and maintenance process, reduce OAM costs and help enterprise customers in the construction of next-generation IT networks.

“Video over IP has grown significantly in importance in recent years,” stated Howard Schilling, PureLink's Director of Sales. “In the PureLink tradition, we wanted to deliver not only the highest quality design and performance, but also a worry-free, plug-and-play experience,” he added. "Later this year, we will debut additional models of VIP-NET switches offering PoE and a number of other valuable features, so stay tuned,” concluded Schilling.
