GV Fabric

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 Convergent router control and Orbit 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

IP switches specifically created for broadcast and media applications
  • Grass Valley supplied COTS-based hardware
  • Software pre-installed with “docker container” for future applications
  • Verified operation with Grass Valley edge devices and typical workflow scenarios
  • Seamless integration with GV Convergent router control and Orbit configuration and monitoring systems
  • Eliminates all potential consultation with third-party switch vendors
  • Fully Compliant with IGMP internet protocol and PTPv2 for device and network timing
  • QSFP28 and QSFP+ fiber modules available with SR (short) and LR (long) range options
  • Provides users with a “one stop shop” with Grass Valley for IP-based broadcast solutions
State-of-the-art performance
  • Two models:
    • 1 RU full width 32x QSFP28 100 GbE ports
    • 1 RU half width 16x QSFP28 100 GbE ports
  • Autosensing port speeds
  • Non-blocking, zero packet loss architecture at full data capacity
  • Very low through-port latency
  • Low power consumption compared with industry-leading vendors
