Artel Video Systems

Quarra 1 Gbps PTP Ethernet rackmount switch with dual power suppy and SyncE

Artel’s Quarra range of IP PTP switches is designed for Carrier Class applications where accurate timing and control is required.
These switches are aimed at the professional markets of Audio/Video Broadcast, Defense & Security, Finance, Utilities, Telecom, and Enterprise IT.
The Quarra switches are designed as either a standard 1RU rackmount unit with dual power supplies, or a half-width 1RU unit with a single power supply, the switches are available in several configurations of 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit interfaces, supporting a best-in-class layer 2 IEEE 1588v2 algorithm.
A 1pps external reference input from GPS is included as standard, and options include an internal layer 1 Synchronous Ethernet module.
Quarra switches also support IGMP v2/3, QoS, protection switching, VLAN, MEF service delivery and network OAM.

Quarra switches support SMPTE Standards-based Timing ST 2110-10 and ST 2059-2 SMPTE and are RAVENNA AES67 approved.
