Meeting the evolving requirements for high performance video and data services has been the driving force in engineering IPITEK's optical transport systems family for over 23 years. With the continuing expansion of HDTV and data services throughout the broadcast and broadband industries, IPITEK introduces the new HBR-2502 optical transport system. Designed to meet the need for a full services system transport, the HBR-2502 enables the user to aggregate a wide range of standard analog and digital video signals for transport over a dedicated fiber optic link or through any standard SONET/SDH network.

The HBR-2502 provides transport for a wide variety of HDTV signals, including SDI (SMPTE-259M), SDTI (SMPTE-305), MPEG-2 and DVB-ASI transport. At the same time, these signals may be combined with standard video, TV-IF and data signals.

The HBR-2502 system expands operating capability with the addition of the new VCX module. The VCX is the key to expanded levels of operation, especially in optical network services. VCX performs all of the multiplexing, demultiplexing and cross connect functions for the HBR system. In addition, VCX expands the system capability by providing the necessary function for operation in "Next-Gen" SONET/SDH networks. The new multiplexing engine utilizes General Framing Protocol (GFP) to provide full flexibility and transport options for multi-service video centric networks. This technology allows HBR-2502 services to be encapsulated into SONET/SDH payloads while maintaining the IPITEK's bandwidth design that allows the unit to oversubscribe data, allowing more data to be carried as compared to a standard system.

The VCX Virtual Cross Connect engine combines HDTV and/or analog video together with other data services to be divided into TDM containers that utilize bandwidth around a SONET/SDH ring in a highly efficient manner. The VCX also includes high speed Rocket I/O ports, allowing interconnection of newer services directly into the HBR-2502. The Rocket ports provide interfacing of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE, Fibre Channel, OC-12 or other high speed services to be transported over an HBR-2502 ring.

HBR-2502 provides full operating performance for Next-Gen SONET/SDH and SONET/SDH compliance for OC-48/STM-16 line rate, signal format, overhead function and payload mapping. The new unit also provides for dual external BITS timing inputs for full redundancy and SONNET/SDH 50 ms Automatic Protection Switching. In addition, HBR-2502 offers both OC-3/STM-1and OC-12/STM-4 Interfaces.
