New firmware enables simultaneous network use

DEVENS, MA, Apr. 3, 2015 – Comrex, a long-time innovator in IP broadcasting technology, has announced that will be debuting ACCESS and BRIC-Link firmware 4.0. This brand new upgrade will enable ACCESS and BRIC-Link users to utilize multiple networks at once for improved broadcast reliability.

ACCESS firmware 4.0 includes an added capability for bonding, which will allow multiple networks to be utilized at once. Rather than bonding, the user can configure the multiple networks for redundancy mode, a better choice for reliability on higher bandwidth links. Use of multiple networks allows for forward error correction (FEC) in addition to other ACCESS reliability tools. These features are crucial for mission critical applications.

With the portable user interface and BRIC algorithms that set the standard for innovative remote broadcasting equipment, ACCESS 4.0 enables higher quality, lower latency, and improved stability from even more locations.
