NAB Sneak Peek: TSL Debuts Axius Ethernet Switches

Handles local and wide area network duties

It was not that long ago that the NAB Show did not debut Ethernet switches. Welcome to the New Broadcast Order.

TSL Products is using the show as a showcase for its new Axius managed Ethernet switches. These switches are designed for handling audio and video over IP networks within a facility (i.e. Layer 2 LAN) or interfacing with other IP networks (i.e. Layer 3 WAN).

TSL Products Product Manager Pieter Schillebeeckx explained, “What is special about the new switch is that it has been developed from the ground up around accurate timing and synchronization through a very tight implementation of Precision Time Protocol (PTP), also known as IEEE 1588, which is used in the majority of high-end audio/video-over-IP supported equipment.”

The Axius switches are also compatible with AVB, AES67, Ravenna, Stagebox and SMPTE 2022-based systems.

Initially there are two Axius boxes available. The MES-1 has 10 ports with eight 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and two 1Gbps Ethernet SFP ports. The more rugged MES-1-R has eight ports, with Neutrik latching connectors for secure operations in challenging environments. Its port complement is six 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and two 1Gbps Ethernet SFP ports.
