48x10G/25G SFP28 and 8x100G QSFP28 Managed Switch

  • 24-JAN-2021

As Pro AV-over-IP systems become ever larger, a new class of switches has come to market. The SDVoE-ready 100G and 10G Ethernet M4500 switches combine the configurability of a matrix switch with the power and scalability of Ethernet to support hundreds of AV-over-IP endpoints, at a price point dramatically cheaper than comparable matrix switches. Layer-3 PIM-SSM routing is available but not obligatory: these new switches offer IGMP+ and greatly simplify system architectures at Layer-2 with the same well-known IGMP techniques across the entire AV-over-IP network.
