The trend of moving matrix switching into the Ethernet network is accelerating and AV over IP already delivers capabilities far beyond that of a traditional matrix switch. Historically it has been simple to design AV over IP systems of up to 96 I/Os using a single switch and Layer-2 Multicast IGMP. However, larger installations required data center-class 100G Ethernet switches with more complex Layer-3 multicast routing techniques, adding complexity and cost to the Ethernet infrastructure. As networked AV systems become ever larger, a new class of switches has come to market. They combine the configurability of a matrix switch with the power and scalability of Ethernet to support hundreds of AV over IP endpoints, at a price point dramatically cheaper than comparable matrix switches. Introducing two new 100GE enabled switches for ProAV, the M4500 series. Removing the need for Layer-3 PIM routing, these new switches offer IGMP Plus and greatly simplify system architectures with the same well-known Layer-2 techniques across the entire AV over IP network. Installers opting to use M4500 switches in their installation will find that it is already preconfigured out of the box.


A 10G to 100G solution
  • The M4500-32C offers 32-port QSFP28 preconfigured for 100G and can support 40G QSFP+ and 50G QSFP28 optics or DAC cables
  • The M4500-48XF8C offers 48-port SFP28 preconfigured for 10G with 8-port 100G QSFP28 uplinks, and the SFP28 ports can support 10G and 25G
For Pro AV installations
  • Installers opting to use M4500 switches in their installation will find that it is already preconfigured out of the box
  • True AV and multicast Zero Touch network configuration: Connect AV-over-IP encoders and decoders, and power on the switch. It just works!
Intelligent IGMP Plus
  • IGMP Plus multicast allows for scalable Pro AV installations at Layer 2 without the PIM (Protocol Independent Multicast) complexity
  • IGMP Plus is default on VLAN 1 out of the box and can be configured on another VLAN for automatic IGMP across M4500 and M4300 switches on that VLAN
Higher availability
  • Meet the requirements of high performance, high availability, fast scale out, low latency performance, and continuous serviceability in sensible applications
  • The M4500 switches offer 1+1 power and 4+2 fan redundancy, an x86 Intel Atom® Processor C3558 with 8GB DDR3/ECC RAM and 128GB SSD storage
Industry standard management
  • The M4500 switches come with an industry standard command line interface (CLI), SSH, SNMP, sFlow, and MLAG
  • An out of band 1 Gigabit Ethernet port facilitates management, with simplified macro-commands for AV-over-IP configuration
