IXG Cloudbridge

Internet Exchange Gateway Server

The IXG Cloudbridge Server provides an ideal solution for delivering high-quality contribution video over unmanaged IP networks. With the proliferation of greater internet access bandwidth, broadcast professionals have a viable economical alternative to transporting video over higher cost dedicated managed IP links or fiber optics.

The IXG Cloudbridge Server can also utilize Forward Error Correction (with IXG-FK-FEC feature key) which allows for a seamless error free delivery of audio and video streams over any network that is not optimized for media transport. For streaming security the XG Cloudbridge is capable of AES128 encryption of streams (with IXG-FK-E128 feature key).

In addition to an on-board web interface, the IXG Cloudbridge Server is VistaLINK® capable, offering remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). This offers the flexibility to manage operations, including signal monitoring and module configuration from an SNMP capable NMS.
