Precision Time Protocol
cloudSwXtch facilitates clock synchronization across the network by acting as the Master Node and passing along information gained from the true clock source to the Follower Nodes at each endpoint (including xNIC). PTP facilitates production needs from Date/Time, Timecode, and Frequency.
cloudSwXtch supports different tiers of egress/ingress bandwidth (data transfer) rates. Maximum rates depend.
cloudSwXtch protects against data path failures by sending the same stream via multiple network paths. The xNIC at the receiving endpoint compares packet reception from the multiple streams, detects duplicate packets, and reconstructs the output stream in the correct packet order. High availability uses redundant cloudSwXtches (and other endpoints) to move the multiple streams across diverse nodes.
Network Protocol Conversion and Fanout
cloudSwXtch takes any supported packet protocol (SRT, unicast, multicast) and fans it out to multiple receivers of another packet protocol. For example, users can forward a unicast stream to multiple receivers as unicast or a combination of unicast, multicast, or SRT depending on the receiver's capability. Likewise, a multicast or SRT stream can be transmitted to multiple receivers while also mapping the stream to many unicast devices, alleviating the need for the sending device to support both protocols.
Ground-to-cloud & cloud-to-ground (Dynamic Bridge)
Integrate on-prem and cloud networks, creating a single data path for all supported protocols (multicast, broadcast, etc.). Dynamic Bridge can optimize connection bandwidth, sending only the requested data at any given time, using common IGMP joins.
Full Mesh Capabilities
Connect cloudSwXtches on different vNETs to support interconnectivity, including across different cloud platforms. Each cloudSwXtch in the mesh communicates to ensure efficient use of interconnected bandwidth, based on dynamic multicast requests and routing.
wXcked Eye for Monitoring and Orchestration
wXcked Eye is a web-based monitoring and orchestration UI for cloudSwXtch. It enables users to audit the performance of their cloudSwXtch network with an end-to-end view of packet flow and quality of service (QoS). In addition, wXcked Eye provides users with the ability to simply configure Mesh, High Availability, and Network Protocol Conversion and Fanout from the comfort of their web browser. A REST API is provided to manage & control your network your way.
High-bandwidth kernel bypass API
Inject packets directly into the kernel and accelerate packet delivery for your application (up to 12m packets-per-minute) through Windows or Linux without doing any coding.
The multicast and high-bandwidth capabilities of cloudSwXtch enable native SMPTE ST 2110 support. The 2110 standard defines synchronized transport of audio, video and ancillary data, via independent multicast streams, with timestamps for alignment. Each media type can be routed separately and easily synchronized at each alignment point.
