The 1 GbE MXG Media Exchange Gateway is designed to facilitate the hand-off between private customer networks and MD8000 networks,. The 1 GbE MXG line module provides a variety of network address translation modes for VLANs, IP networks, and RTP and UDP media streams.

The seamless bi-directional interconnection of broadcast video transport networks with private customer networks is a challenge for many service providers. With our 1 GbE MXG line module, Media Links meets this

challenge head-on by giving users a wide range of Layer 2 and 3 address translation options. These choices include both Ingress and Egress address translation by source or destination MAC address, VLAN ID and Priority, and source and destination IP address. In addition, the 1 GbE MXG module supports Time-to-Live, ToS/DSCP, and source/destination UDP port number conversions. A granular Stream Policing feature based on 1Mbps increments is also available.

Multiple 1 GbE MXG line modules can be installed in a single MD8000 chassis, giving users the ability to perform frame and packet header conversions on dozens of video streams. Two 1Gbps user ports are supported, with each port capable of handling 24 hand-off services. For Egress streams, stream replication with three outputs per service is offered.
