It has dual gigabit (10/100/1000) onboard Ethernet ports, dual redundant power supplies, audio silence detection and IP network backup to ensure reliable connections. Automated network failure detection provides switching to a backup IP LAN connection. SmartStream provides automated jitter buffer management, forward error correction (FEC) and error concealment.
