Nevion eMerge

SDN media fabric for broadcast and telco

Are you looking for a SDN media fabric, pre-integrated with Nevion VideoIPath?

The Nevion eMerge SDN (software defined network) media fabric is a portfolio of high-capacity IP switches carefully engineered to fulfil specific broadcast requirements for both LAN and WAN networks, and pre-integrated with Nevion’s VideoIPath media orchestration platform.

The switches’ advance features, such as flexible programming of NAT rules, give unprecedented control of media flows in the network.

Building SDN media fabrics for IP facility and OB vans

Backbone switches for media WANs

Handoff media streams to third-party networks using NAT

Unidirectional forwarding of streams (media firewall)

Nevion eMerge is a key component of Networked Live, an ecosystem of products, solutions, services, and partners to transform production workflows.

Why Nevion eMerge?

Designing and building an IP media network, whether for an OB truck or an entire broadcast production facility, can be complex and time consuming, with many factors to take into consideration, including capacity, flexibility, control, timing etc.
 
Often broadcasters and media companies simply have neither the time nor the resources to conduct a thorough evaluation of COTS switches, and want a media fabric that just works out of the box.
 
eMerge is designed to make it fast and easy to create small/medium sized media LANs or WANs.

Benefits

Designed for broadcast applications

eMerge is specifically engineered for the requirements of broadcast applications. This saves both time and money when looking to select suitable switches. This is especially valuable for small/medium sized projects where time and budget are constrained.

Pre-integrated SDN control with VideoIpath

eMerge can be deployed with only minimal configuration effort and at no additional development or integration cost. The combination of VideoIPath and eMerge provides the most comprehensive SDN controlled media fabric on the market today and can be deployed quickly at an attractive price point.

Combine SDN with normal switching

eMerge is highly programmable and provides unprecedented control of media flows. This can be combined with normal switching for in-band mangement and other data transport needs across the same IP fabric.

Fully interoperable with other COTS switches

eMerge is also fully interoperable with other COTS IP switches on the market, which means that customers can opt to expand with other products. It also allows eMerge to be deployed as specialized NAT switches at the edge of an existing network.

Features and functionality

The Nevion eMerge portfolio consists of 100G spine/core, 10/25G video leaf/access and 1G audio leaf/access switches. The switches offer full line rate switching capacity and are perfect for building spine/leaf LAN media fabrics, but can also be used as part of a media WAN.
