IP Encapsulator MD 5600

High performance, market-proven and reliable IP to TV gateway

IP Encapsulator (IPE) MD5600 is the gateway between IP and digital television networks (DVB, ASTC, ISDB etc.). It provides a reliable and cost-effective way to encapsulate IP packets into digital television transport stream packets (ts mpeg). It is a fundamental tool for providing various data services via TV networks.

The IPE receives IP packets from an Ethernet connection and encapsulates them into digital TV transport stream. Based on the user configurations, the IPE outputs desired transports stream via DVB-ASI interface or IP outputs (TS over IP). If the entire channel is used only for IP services (e.g. satellite internet), the output transport stream can be forwarded directly to a modulator. If data services are provided along with TV services, the output transport stream can be forwarded to a multiplexer. The IPE supports two-layer Quality of Service, allowing management of data channel bitrates, including setting minimal and maximal bitrates and priority.

Flexible configuration and management of one or multiple IPEs is possible with our web-based management solution BNMS. Besides securing redundancy setups comprised of multiple IPE clusters it allows administrators to allocate resources to multiple service providers, and service providers to directly manage those resources. For ease-of-use, the IPE front-panel includes LCD display with navigation keys.

IPE comes with Remote Monitoring Client (RMC) a multiplatform JAVA client providing administrators an easy way of controlling multiple IPE clusters.
