How to build extra resilience into your IP broadcast networks
When it comes to building resilience into an IP environment there are many areas to consider.
Some of these areas aren’t new; things like ensuring devices are powered from two independent power sources, or ensuring redundant cable runs are physically routed separately. These physical problems will never go away.
Some challenges are new, such as deploying a second network fabric to accommodate a SMPTE ST2022-7 pair of media streams or ensuring that IGMP querier election is redundant and deterministic.
In a free, certified IP training course available at calrec.com, we have already discussed Network Design best practices, multiple network topologies and how network design decisions can drastically change the resilience of an IP network.
This paper looks at how to build safe, resilient and robust IP network infrastructures and why Calrec is doubling down to providing fully hardware redundant IP solutions.
It is beneficial to networking, technology and architect teams who require a thorough understanding of the operation and performance of Calrec’s hardware redundancy model.
