IPGuardV2

2:1 Smart IP streams switching

IPGuardV2 is ENENSYS’ unique and secure solution that enables 1+1 Automatic IP switching with bypass mechanism. Designed for IP architectures, it allows to switch between main & backup IP sources based on a set of configurable criteria in order to provide reliable IP transport and error-free streams.

Applications

Hdc front panel
  • 1+1 automatic IP switching of IP-based equipment and networks
  • Contribution & distribution links securization
  • Seamless switching between IP links with different propagation delays
  • Seamless switching between between SFN adapters (DVB-T/T2, ISDB-TB, ATSC3.0)
  • Seamless switch over between TS, T2-MI, BTS and RTP streams
  • SMPTE2022-7 seamless protection switching
  • Switch-over based on:
    • ETR290 1/2/3 and audio/video advanced criteria
    • IP dedicated criteria (RTP packet loss, stream jitter, presence of the stream, RJ45 error

Highlights

Secure your IP infrastructures

IPGuardV2 switches automatically between IP-based devices or IP networks by selecting the best streams based on configurable criteria.

100% service availability for great viewers experience

By checking continuously the broadcasted contents and by being highly reliable, the IPGuardV2 allows the operator to provide a great experience to their customers ensuring a high QoS.

Safe DTT SFN broadcasting

Used with ENENSYS' gateways and SFN adapter, IPGuardV2 prevents from facing DTV blackout or audio/video glitches when problems occur in your infrastructure in DVB-T/T2, ISDB-Tb, ATSC3.0...

Convenient for DTT, CATV & IPTV

Due to its high processing capability and the number of switching criteria available, IPGuardV2 can be setup in any IP infrastructures, securizing every distribution or contribution links.

Straightforward setup into existing networks

IPGuardV2 is the only IP transparent switch on the market that does not modify the IP streams, leading to a straightforward integration into existing network infrastructures.
