GV Fabric

Compact, High-speed Ethernet Switches for Broadcast IP Routing Systems

GV Fabric is a COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) IP switch enabling format-agnostic signal routing for small to enterprise-wide installations. Operation has been rigorously tested with Grass Valley IP edge devices and in typical workflow scenarios, thus ensuring all the main equipment for an “end-to-end” IP solution can now be sourced from a single leading supplier. Its seamless integration with proven and established GV Orbit router control, configuration and monitoring systems dramatically reduces deployment timelines, system upgrading, fault finding and customizing workflows.

GV Fabric’s scalable technology means it’s equally at home in spine-and-leaf or monolithic type structures...

FEATURES
