Tieline has announced it will reveal the new TieLink Traversal Server at NAB2019, which is designed to facilitate simple codec discovery, NAT traversal, and connections throughout your entire network.

The TieLink Traversal Server ensures you will no longer need to worry about complex IP network configuration with Tieline codecs, TieLink makes connecting over IP a simple, no-fuss task for non-technical broadcast personnel. 

The TieLink Traversal Server is a secure, independently hosted global server network, with multiple global backups. It centralizes Tieline codec contact list management and provides self-discovery of codecs within customized ‘call-groups’. Users can easily view the online or offline status of all codecs in a group and whether it is connected or disconnected. It also provides NAT traversal to simplify connections. 
TieLink operates over most wired and wireless IP networks. Plus, it is as simple as making a phone call to get connected. It is free to use with all G5 Genie and Merlin codecs and Traversal Server licenses can be purchased for Bridge-IT and Bridge-IT XTRA codecs. 

Cloud Codec Controller 
When combined with the Cloud Codec Controller, which is designed to manage an entire fleet of Tieline codecs remotely, engineers have the power to configure, connect and monitor all remote codecs from the studio more easily than ever before!

Tieline has announced it has developed a new internal Dual Active SIM LTE module for the ViA remote codec supporting two active cellular connections. Designed to perform in the most challenging production environments, the new module supports using SIM cards from different Telcos simultaneously for diversity when using Tieline’s industry-leading SmartStream PLUS dual redundant streaming technology. The two SIM cards can also be bonded to create additional bandwidth using a single robust Fuse-IP link.

“The new ViA dual internal modem will deliver more choice to Tieline customers for wireless remote broadcasting,” said Charlie Gawley, VP Sales APAC/EMEA. “The ViA already supports connecting two mobile providers using USB, however many customers requested an internal module with dual modems to avoid using external modems. This innovation also means there will be seven different IP interface options from which to choose when going live.”

The ViA offers the ability to connect over dual Ethernet ports, built-in Wi-Fi (no USB modem required), dual USB modems, and now the new module with dual internal modems. Any two interfaces can also be bonded to deliver secure and robust connections from remote locations in challenging environments. The new Dual Active SIM module has 4 antenna connections to provide antenna diversity for both SIM card connections.

There will be an International and US version of the module to suit different cellular networks and shipping dates will be announced after NAB 2019.
