Swisscom Broadcast is expanding its core media network with Net Insight’s next-generation IP-based platform Nimbra 1060.
The Swiss company provides a wide range of audio and video services and operates national contribution and distribution networks based on Net Insight’s Nimbra solution.
With terabit capacity, Nimbra 1060 gives managed media networks the speed and performance they need, according to the Swedish service provider. The solution, launched last year, is already used by broadcasters worldwide including SVT Sweden.
“With this expansion, we have laid the foundation for the next generation broadcast IP platform both in terms of scalability up to several terabits per second and in terms of QoS,” said Jean-Paul de Weck, CEO at Swisscom Broadcast. “Our customised solutions for business customers are distinguished by maximum reliability, availability and performance and together with Net Insight we can accomplish that.”
Henrik Sund, CEO at Net Insight, added: “Swisscom Broadcast is a market, technology and innovation leader and is taking an active and assertive role in shaping the future in our increasingly networked world. With our Nimbra platform we provide them with robust, efficient and high-quality processing and transport of live media content, creating the right conditions for improved and more efficient production and distribution of media content, which contributes to a better live TV viewing experience.”
The order was placed and delivered in the second quarter of 2019.
