Net Insight, a Swedish provider of live, interactive and on-demand media transport solutions, has signed a deal with Swiss transmitter network operator Swisscom Broadcast to develop a nationwide DTT distribution network covering the whole of Switzerland and serving both radio and DVB-T/TV services.
Net Insight will enable Swisscom Broadcast to move from their current platform to a more flexible and as reliable transport platform for all broadcast and data services.
The solution will lower Swisscom Broadcast’s OPEX by providing a future-proof network that will enable Swiss broadcasters to migrate more and more IP services on the same platform without the need for new hardware or network redesigns, according to the Stockholm-based company.
The rollout and migration to the new network will begin this quarter and will be implemented right through to the first half of 2016. The value of the deliveries of this project under the contract is estimated to amount to around €2 million.
