Addressing Interoperability
and Data Channels
in AoIP Transport
GatesAir continues to transform the market with its
intelligent IP networking solutions, says Rich Redmond,
Chief Product Officer, GatesAir...

A

s more broadcasters transition
away from legacy TDM networking
solutions and toward IP, GatesAir
continues to bring new innovations to
market that help broadcasters increase
transport reliability, enhance network
security, and introduce new business
opportunities.
The introduction of GatesAir's IP
Link codec family several years ago
proved that IP transport could be
robust and reliable while reducing
capital and operational expense. The
IP Link 100 and 200 codecs first came
to market with technologies neverbefore-seen in broadcast. This includes
Dynamic Stream Splicing (DSS), a
unique GatesAir technology that
sends multiple identical streams over
the same network, or two separate
paths. Each stream borrows data from
companion streams to avoid artifacts
and service interruptions from packet
loss. For the first time, broadcasters
realized they could achieve the same
reliability with IP transport as with T1/
E1 transport.
At the 2018 NAB Show, GatesAir
is bringing two new intelligent IP
networking solutions to market that
retain these core technologies and
benefits, and furthermore address the
latest emerging trends and challenges
in IP transport: AES67 interoperability,
and secure data management.
AES67 Interoperability
GatesAir will make significant strides
in interoperable audio networking with
the introduction of the Intraplex IP
Link 200A, the company's first AES67compliant Audio over IP codec. The
IP Link 200A allows broadcasters to
seamlessly interconnect studios and
remote locations, including transmitter
sites, using the AES67 standard and
any of today's encoding algorithms
across wide-area IP networks.
The IP Link 200A is a hybrid model
that interconnects AES67 and Analog/

Intraplex IPConnect

AES3 signals simultaneously, and
enables conversion between the two
formats. With dedicated channels
for both, users still operating in
Analog or AES3 mode have a futureproof path to an industry-adopted
Audio over IP standard. Additionally,
those operating in mixed mode can
seamlessly convert between the AES67
and Analog/AES3 as desired. In any
scenario, the IP Link 200A simplifies
the cabling and removes limitations on
location of the codec.
"With IP Link 200A, broadcasters
have flexibility to interconnect
audio using AES67, Analog/AES3
or in a mixed mode and provides a
transitional path to an all-Audio over
IP interconnect," said Rich Redmond,
Chief Product Officer, GatesAir. "Its
design simplifies the cabling and
interconnection requirements from
our codecs to the wide area network,
and provides our customers with a
true AES67 Audio over IP device that
is interoperable with today's leading
Audio over IP solutions, including
WheatNet-IP, Ravenna and Livewire+.
The IP Link 200A is a timely innovation
that adds to our long legacy of
intelligent IP networking solutions."
As with other IP Link codecs, the
IP Link 200A integrates
award-winning features
that enhance stream
reliability and network
security, among other
benefits. This includes
GatesAir's
groundbreaking
Dynamic Stream Splicing software, and
integration of a firewall and advanced

packet filtering capabilities strengthen
network security. This protects against
outside intrusions to ensure rock-solid,
on-air signal protection.
Secure Data Transport
Speaking of protection and security,
GatesAir will introduce the secondgeneration of its Intraplex IPConnect
content stream transport solution,
now a standalone half-rack hardware
device for data protection capability to
a broadcaster's audio contribution and
distribution network.
As a standalone device, IPConnect
provides rock-solid reliability and
network security for virtually all
types of IP data originating from
IP audio codecs, HD Radio streams
and remote control applications via
SNMP or the Web. It can be used as
an IP Gateway or local area network
bridge device to support point-topoint applications (STL, studio-tostudio, remote contribution) as well
as multipoint distribution (SFNs, DAB/
DAB+ networks, content syndication).
IPConnect fortifies data transport
across IP networks by minimizing data
loss associated with dropped packets,
employing a combination of packet

GatesAir Flexiva LX

protection schemes with network/time
diversity and packet-level forward
error correction.
In addition to strengthening data
transport, the new IPConnect device
adds new built-in monitoring features
such as SafeIP to manage redundancy
for external IP sources and bandwidth
measurement capability tools to help
broadcasters confirm network health
and capacity before launching an
application.
For network protection, IP Link
Connect enhances security through
the ability to tunnel all IP data
between one or more sites, eliminating
concerns of outside interference.
IPConnect's
software
provides
extra protection through packet
encapsulation, which encloses the
external IP data packets in a GatesAir
protocol wrapper as it moves across
IP networks. IPConnect uniquely
provides this protection for studiogenerated data, as well as IP data from
external sources. While the former
might include RDS data or SNMP
control signals to trigger a command
at the transmitter site, the latter may
incorporate program or control data
coming from a network operations
center, satellite feed or advertising
service.
GatesAir will demonstrate IPConnect
alongside its complete range of
Intraplex
intelligent
networking
solutions at its booth, including the
complete range of Intraplex IP Link
codecs; as well as its complete range
of Maxiva television and DAB radio
transmitters;
and
Flexiva
transmitters
for FM and digital radio.
We invite you to visit
GatesAir and view working
demonstrations of these
products and solutions at
Booth N3703.
