Net Insight Launches Next Generation Media Transport Platform

New IP solution from Net Insight provides bandwidth and service provisioning agility to meet the demands of higher quality video content such as UHD/4K, HDR, HFR, VR and 360.

Net Insight has launched its next generation media transport platform, Nimbra 1060. The new platform is unique because it brings IP-based media services across national and global media networks easily, without the complex traffic engineering typically associated with high-quality media transport.

The exponential increase in demand for higher quality video content means future media networks need to do more. To meet these new demands, they need to provide broadcasters with more capacity, be more flexible and support new technologies, all with guaranteed service quality. Nimbra 1060 is designed specifically to meet these new requirements.

In addition to providing the industry's highest capacity density, it is built around one common hardware architecture to enable flexible deployment of media functions anywhere in the network and a datacenter building practice to support new cloud-oriented sites and locations.

Nimbra 1060 retains all the characteristics from existing Nimbra MSRs in an all-IP world. Service providers and network operators get a carrier grade platform, with assured service quality and service agility guaranteed at any level of network utilization. With this combination of assurance and agility at any utilization they can always use all available network capacity without ever sacrificing quality.

The new solution provides a unique combination of terabit capacity networking for IP-based media services such as SMPTE 2110, guaranteed service quality for the most demanding live media events and agility for customer-provisioned and automated real-time service provisioning.

"The Nimbra 1060 platform is a game changer for the media transport industry," says Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. "This is one of the biggest launches ever for Net Insight, and a strong proof point that we are committed to our customers success with their media networking business in a more flexible and demanding all-IP future."
