MDP3020 SFN: Single Frequency Networks
The MDP3020 SFN IP media gateway is designed for IP distribution of digital television broadcast signals across Single Frequency Networks. Its support of Precision Timing protocol enables transport of a synchronous time base without reliance on costly satellite receiver.
The SFN version carries PTP (IEEE1588 V2) synchronized packets via terrestrial IP networks as an alternative to conventional GPS receivers. Additional features include onboard redundancy, full scale network management support, and, if necessary, the ability to easily scale with additional transmitters (and therefore network size).
