New Sirius Completes Trilogy Of 3G Routers For Pro-Bel

Sirius - Pro-Bel's successful router range - can now be purchased with 3G capabilities.
The announcement follows on from the successful deployment of the technology with both the Pyxis and Cygnus ranges and means that Pro-Bel is 3 Gbit/s across all three of its key router systems.
Alan Smith, Pro-Bel's Routing Product Manager, said: "We developed and launched 3Gbit/s-capable larger and smaller routers with Pyxis and Cygnus back in 2007. We have now given Sirius 3G capability to ensure that we can offer it across the whole range of router sizes.
With almost 1,000 units shipped to date, Sirius is a hugely popular router and is under constant development as the market evolves."
Due to its range of sizes, Sirius appeals to a broad cross-section of the market, from small post-production use to larger central area routing. As Sirius is also a very compact router design, it is also very popular for OB trucks of all sizes.
Smith said: "The 4U 64x64, 7U 128x128 and 16U 256x256 frames are capable of routing any combination of signals, including 3G. The new 3G input, output and crosspoint cards are compatible with the whole range, and we are introducing these to replace the current HD cards at no additional cost to the customer.
"They will route SD, HD and 3G signals and automatically detect and switch to handle the correct signal type. This change will be phased in over the next few months. Existing systems in the field can be upgraded to 3G by card replacement.
Adrian Scott, Pro-Bel's Chief Marketing Officer, commented: "We are proud that our key router ranges are all now 3 Gbit/s-compatible. Even though for many 3G is still in their future, all Pro-Bel routers are designed for many years of service and it is important we give our users this choice."
