AMWA IS-06 NMOS Network Control Specification

Lint Status Render Status

IS-06 is an AMWA NMOS Specification for API control of a managed network.

What does it do?

  • Lets broadcast control applications manage what happens on the network itself

Why does it matter?

  • Ethernet switch output ports might only support a limited number of media flows before they start dropping packets
    • This is different to what happens in a typical SDI router
    • And it means corrupted video and audio

How does it work?

  • Provides a “Northbound” API from network fabric’s controller
  • Includes topology discovery, flow authorization and assurances of flow bandwidth
