Media Links has launched its MD8000 Media Transport System. The MD8000 is designed with scalable bandwidth — from 10Mb/s-10Gb/s —allowing the transport of compressed and uncompressed HD, SD, audio and data. It is built to work transparently with today’s popular high-reliability SONET/SDH architectures as well as low-cost, high-performance IP core-based systems. The system will support simultaneous interconnections among a range of networking technologies, providing a smooth migration path as networking technologies evolve. In addition, the MD8000 does not require proprietary switching elements at each network node — individual signals can be switched between paths by standard IP routers. This gives system designers great flexibility to combine low-cost MD8000 shelves in the same network as IP core routers and switchesFor more information, visit www.medialinks.com.
