The ARG product range provides a one stop shop solution for cost effective and reliable Primary Distribution to terrestrial transmitter sites, or any point of secondary distribution, of any compressed signal, for any Digital Terrestrial Single Frequency (SFN); DVB-T, DVB-T2 , DMB-T/H, ATSC or ISDB-T network.
The flagship Media Combiner platform ARG EASY, ( aggregating ASI, IP and RS232/422 ) can be used on any telecommunications network infrastructure from Gigabit Ethernet to legacy SDH/PDH.
The Stagebox range of switches is a development of the popular ARG EASY product range initially conceived for Broadcast applications. The range of switches is designed around a Gigabit carrier class switch engine and is intended for Telecom and Carrier Ethernet applications, supporting MEF service delivery, network OAM, AVB and much more.
The switch is designed to replicate synchronous legacy networks and has timing options for an internal GPS module requiring only a suitable antenna, an internal layer 1 SyncE module, an internal PTP best in class layer 2 IEEE 1588v2 software/hardware algorithm as well as a 1pps external reference input from GPS for PTP sync.
A further option supports TSoIP for STM-1/OC3 and STM-4/OC12 over a Gigabit Packet Switched Network by means of a Pseudo Wire connection.
