[Artel QUARRA 1G] Artel Quarra 1G - Ravenna/AES67 Approved Desktop Switch - 8 RJ45, 2 SFP Ports, 100-250 VAC Input, 1/2 1RU

Special Price US$2,330.00

Availability: In stock



The Artel Quarra range of switches is designed for Carrier Class applications where accurate timing and control is required. These switches are aimed at the professional markets of Audio/Video Broadcast, Defense & Security, Finance, Utilities, Telecom, and Enterprise IT. Designed as either a standard 1RU rackmount unit with dual power supplies, or a half-width 1RU unit with a single power supply, the switches are available in several configurations of 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit interfaces, supporting a best-in-class layer 2 IEEE 1588v2 algorithm. A 1pps external reference input from GPS is included as standard, and options include an internal layer 1 Synchronous Ethernet module as well as an internal GPS module requiring only a suitable antenna. The switches support IGMP v2/3, QoS, protection switching, VLAN, MEF service delivery and network OAM.

  • Ideal for:
  • • Live video/audio broadcast/production over IP utilizing IEEE1588 timing, QoS and Multicast filtering.
  • • Broadcast DTT/DTV IP distribution, utilizing IEEE1588 and SyncE timing to replace or backup GPS timing at base stations.
  • • Telecom networks, providing high level of network timing.
  • • Financial/trading networks, utilizing our IEEE1588 precise nanosecond time synchronization.
