The HC Bridge provides 512 bi-directional channels of network bridging and/or conversion for AoIP networks; Dante, AES67 and ST 2110. The two network connections can be physically or virtually separate networks, providing control isolation between two sets of equipment where an “AoIP discovery and control firewall” is required. The HC Bridge and Dante HC cards are also used with System T Tempest processing engines.
A HC bridge includes 2 HC cards, each HC card provides 512 Tx and 512 Rx channels at 48khz, 256 Tx and 256 Rx at 96khz, with 128 Tx and 128 Rx streams at all sample rates. Each card includes redundant pair SFP cages for RJ45 or fibre AoIP connectivity. Plus 4 SFP HC link connections, for redundant cable and redundant tempest engine configurations.
