South Asian telecommunications service provider selects Net Insight for international video contribution network


Stockholm, Sweden – Net Insight, a leading provider of efficient optical transport solutions for media, broadcast and IP networks has signed a frame agreement and received the first order from an Asian telecommunications service provider for an international video contribution network connecting a South Asian country with major cities in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific.

The service provider, operating a comprehensive terrestrial, subsea and satellite network, is deploying a new media transport solution using Net Insight’s Nimbra platform. The network will initially allow exchange of content between multiple cities in this South Asian country and a number of cities in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. Under the five-year frame agreement, the service provider and its affiliates are able to gradually extend the service offering and connect new customers by procuring additional Net Insight products and services.

Based on a fully redundant core network with dual Nimbra nodes at all POPs, the operator is able to offer its customers video connectivity with various degrees of availability using the broad range of routing and restoration features of the Nimbra platform. The first phase of the network comprises Nimbra multiservice switches carrying compressed video (ASI and IP) over optical links with guaranteed quality of service. The Nimbra Vision network management system gives the network operator superior manageability and full control of the network from its network operations centre.

The equipment will be delivered during the fourth quarter of 2009.

“This is an important step for us in this part of the region and we are delighted that this large service provider has selected Net Insight for this demanding global media network”, says Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO of Net Insight. “Their decision was made following extensive testing in their labs and the field and in tough competition with other vendors.”
