Riedel Fiber Solution - MediorNet Modular System

MediorNet is based on a modular concept, which allows the frame to be configured to the customer’s requirements. The frame can be filled with various Media and Link cards, according to the specific application.

Each mainframe provides:
1x slot for the processing card
6x high-speed card slots (four with a 2x 4.25 GBit/s and two with a 4x 4.25 GBit/s connection to the backplane, designed for high data rate signals such as video signals or CWDM link cards)
2x low-speed card slots (each one with 2x 125 MBit/s connection to the backplane, designed for low data rate signals such as audio signals)

All modules and cards are hot-swappable. Redundant power-supplies guarantee maximum reliability. The optimized cooling concept of MediorNet results in a very low-noise system. The horizontal air-flow within the device allows for effective cooling without the need for additional rack-space below or above the MediorNet mainframe.
MediorNet frames can be rack-mounted in various positions, e.g. with all connectors on the front or on the rear side, or recessed to allow cabling from the front but without connectors or cables exceeding the rack’s dimensions. The IEC connectors can be located front or rear independently from the other cabling.

MediorNet Fan Module
The MediorNet Fan Module contains three temperature-controlled, low-noise, slow-spinning fans ensuring a steady horizontal air stream through the mainframe.

MediorNet Power-Supply Module
The MediorNet MN-PSUF Power-Supply Module provides an IEC connector on the front of the mainframe (MN-PSUR: on the rear) and is prepared for a wide input range, from 90 to 264 V AC and a frequency range from 47 to 63 Hz. The power-supply provides 150 W output and is hot-swappable.

MN-XSS Processing Card
The MN-XSS Processing Card serves as the heart of any MediorNet mainframe. It includes extensive LED status indication for all cards and modules. The card ensures the optimal signal path and use of available bandwidth. It also provides an universal router for 16x16 high-speed MediorNet signals, which allows for example the routing of 32x32 720p/1080i HD-SDI signals, 184x184 SD-SDI signals, 27,000x27,000 AES3 signals or any combination of these. MediorNet allows the user to build up a decentralized routing environment consisting of multiple MediorNet nodes. In addition, the card features a wide range of standard interfaces.

These include:
1x 100BaseT Ethernet connection for configuration PCs or external router control systems
1x 1000BaseT Gigabit Ethernet for PC networks (transparent tunneling)
2x Artist intercom panel connectors (1x RJ45, 1x BNC, independently usable)
2x bi-directional MADI interfaces (1x optical via SFP module, 1x electrical via two BNC connectors)
1x Sync In & 1x Sync Out (MN-XSS only) via BNC connectors for frame synchronization

Link Cards for Optimal Use of Fiber

MediorNet offers Link Cards with and without integrated CWDM multiplexing to network MediorNet mainframes with a bandwidth of up to 76.5 GBit/s on a single fiber link. MediorNet‘s standard fiber transceivers have an optical budget of 18 dB minimum, allowing for distances of up to 25 miles (40 km). Transceivers for longer distances are optionally available. A MediorNet fiber link always consists of duplex fiber to allow bi-directional signal transport. MediorNet Link Cards can also include external optical signals and transport them transparently through the system. All MediorNet Link Cards provide signal monitoring and link status information, which can be monitored via status LEDs and system-wide via the MediorWorks software and SNMP network management systems.
