Nevion Virtuoso’s IP Media Edge Processor offers network isolation, media firewall, network stream protection and translation for UDP and RTP IP media flows.

The IP Media Edge (IPME) Processor incorporates advanced techniques for processing and protection of UDP/IP and RTP/UDP/IP media flows.

Processing features include Network Address Translation (NAT), bitrate policing, stream duplication, flow linearization / de-jittering, and UDP/IP to RTP/UDP/IP conversion.

Protection features include SMPTE ST 2022-7 hitless switching for RTP stream redundancy and SMPTE ST 2022-1/5 Forward Error Correction.

Focusing entirely on processing IP media flows to secure networks and optimize their performance, the IPME is a key addition to the Nevion Virtuoso Platform. Due to its dedicated hardware packet processing and complete isolation between Ethernet ports, the IPME is ideal for protecting the media network edge.
