Blends wireless, satellite and cloud
IronRoute is a cloud-based content distribution solution blending broadband, cellular (3G/4G/5G), and satellite connectivity from Intelsat’s global network. Dejero says its Smart Blending Technology combines all available network connections to create a virtual ‘network of networks’ with the necessary bandwidth to deliver broadcast-quality content.
The cloud-based solution is intended to also simplify the simultaneous distribution of content to multiple locations anywhere. Live and file-based content can quickly and easily be distributed point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and multipoint-to-multipoint with a drag and drop interface in a web browser.
“Content providers are increasingly using the cloud for global distribution, but reliable first- and last-mile connectivity to the cloud has been a challenge,” said Todd Schneider, CTO, Dejero. “With the ability to automatically blend broadband, cellular, and satellite connectivity to move content to and from the cloud, IronRoute for media provides organizations with the reliable connectivity they need, while also simplifying the simultaneous distribution of their content around the globe with an easy-to-use portal for managing connectivity devices and content.”
Bill O’Hara, General Manager, Media, Intelsat, stated, “Media customers today have a wide array of connectivity requirements. Very rarely does one type of connectivity fit all customer applications, either due to cost, reliability, or reach. IronRoute for media, integrated with Intelsat’s global satellite connectivity, provides the dynamic flexibility to manage cost and reliability in accordance with customer requirements by utilizing the right blend of connectivity at the right moment. We strongly believe that by integrating Intelsat’s global satellite connectivity into IronRoute for media, we will together provide a globalized and differentiated solution.”

Signal transducers such as cameras, displays, microphones and loudspeakers handle information, ideally converting it from one form to another, but practically losing some. Information theory can be used to analyze such devices.
Connecting a camera in an SDI infrastructure is easy. Just connect the camera output to the monitor input, and all being well, a picture will appear. The story is very different in the IP domain.
