With System T, Dante AoIP network technology (with complete AES 67 capability) replaces traditional TDM routing with an ecosystem that offers a wide range of operational and commercial benefits. Dante is a licensed IP Audio Network technology which uses standard IT infrastructure for audio transport, routing, device discovery and control. Dante is high capacity, incredibly versatile and fully scalable. A single gigabit network connection can carry 512 audio channels at 48kHz, or 256 channels at 96kHz. With 512 audio channels bi-directionally on a 1GB connection, a single 24 Port GB Switch is capable of equivalent routing capacity to a 12,288 by 12,288 TDM router at a fraction of the cost. Expansion of a network is not subject to the square law growth required when expanding TDM routing systems; additional switches and capacity can be deployed without replacing core hardware.
Dante offers fully inter operable system design; over 350 licensed development partners with more than 1000 devices commercially available enabling you to select and combine devices from different manufacturers. The system includes full current AES67 and future ready SMPTE 2110-30 audio transport capability. System T offers full routing control of the Dante network from within our consoles and control interfaces. Routing control can be achieved from an unlimited number of devices or network terminals. Dante employs full plug and play device discovery enabling devices to be moved around the network and re-connected with settings intact. Fully redundant network topologies widely used and proven in many IT applications provide the security required for Broadcast infrastructure
