Net Insight AB : Net Insight's media solutions for new Core Network Upgrade
Stockholm, Sweden 7 March 2013 - Net Insight, a leading developer of efficient
and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today
announces that Arqiva Satellite & Media has selected Net Insight for an
extension of its existing Nimbra-based media network.
Arqiva Satellite & Media, a communications infrastructure and media services
company, offers uplinking, connectivity and playout solutions to the global
broadcast market. The company is at the forefront of network solutions and
services in the digital world and provides much of the infrastructure behind
television, radio, satellite and wireless communications in the UK and has a
significant presence in Ireland, mainland Europe and the USA.
The media network from Net Insight enables Arqiva to operate efficiently
through a single platform and to bring new services to its broadcast customers
in a cost-efficient way. The new core network enables Arqiva to provide
uncompressed media services between its main core uplink locations in order to
meet the ever increasing demand for these types of services from its clients.
By extending with Net Insight, Arqiva has the flexibility to offer bulk
delivery of ASI, IP, SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and JPEG2000 compressed versions
of SD, HD and 3G SDI, from any port to any port in its core network and in any
direction, be it unicast or multicast. By upgrading the core network Arqiva
increases capability to provide bulk uncompressed media services.
Delivery took place during 2012 and the network will be operational during the
first quarter of 2013.
The extension adds new Nimbra core nodes utilizing 160G Switches and 10G
trunks at its main uplink locations as well as JPEG2000 Video Access modules.
In total Arqiva now has more than 160 Nimbra nodes installed across Europe and
"This enables us to have a single platform which can be configured on a port
by port basis to adapt to the media needs of our clients," says John Bozza,
Sales Director, Europe at Arqiva. "The Nimbra platform offers a cost efficient
and flexible solution for expansion and resiliency purposes."
