Building an IP Fabric with Cisco Products

Chris Merrill, Senior Product Manager Infrastructure, Strategic Marketing
Alexandre Gagne, Senior Product Manager, Monitoring & Control, Strategic Marketing

Cisco's IP fabric for media solution replaces what previously was the crosspoint section of an SDI router in live production studios with an IP-based infrastructure. The Cisco Nexus 9200/9300-EX platform switches in conjunction with the Cisco non-blocking multicast (NBM) algorithm (an intelligent traffic management algorithm) provide a reliable, scalable IP fabric for the broadcast industry. In addition, this IP fabric solution provides zero-drop multicast transport and support for PTP media profiles.
