NEP Switzerland will deploy a solution for transporting professional live media over the internet from Swedish media service provider Net Insight.
NEP Switzerland, a provider of outsourced production services supporting producers of live sports, entertainment, music and corporate events, will use Net Insight’s Nimbra-based network for streaming professional live content and will build a fully redundant solution.
The system will be used for event activities to locations where fibre or satellite uplinks are either not available or cost prohibitive. The new network is scheduled to be operational at the end of July 2019.
“We selected Net Insight after a thorough investigation and evaluation of different solutions and we see that there is great future potential for this type of network solution over the internet,” said Trond Hermansen, CTO at NEP Switzerland. “The service type flexibility, elasticity as well as embedded security functions of the Nimbra platform is outstanding.”
Henrik Sund, CEO of Net Insight, added: “NEP Switzerland will now be able to deliver broadcast media quality services over the most challenging network conditions. We are very pleased to add yet another leading, global production company among the users of our award-winning media transport over internet solution.”
