Swisscom Broadcast Expands Media Network Core With Net Insight

Swisscom Broadcast is adding the latest IP-based platform from Net Insight to expand its core media network. The Swiss company offers a wide range of audio and video services and operates national contribution and distribution networks based on Net Insight’s Nimbra all-IP media transport platform.

Henrik Sund, CEO at Net Insight, said the Nimbra platform provides 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.

Swisscom Broadcast recently won new projects for its contribution network, which has led to an expansion of the core media network, with Net Insight’s latest terabit IP platform, the Nimbra 1060. With the integration of the Nimbra 1060 platform, Swisscom Broadcast adds both speed and performance to its core media network, while maintaining the highest possible service quality.

The Nimbra 1060 provides a combination of terabit capacity for IP-based media services such as SMPTE 2110.

With terabit capacity the Nimbra 1060 provides managed media networks with the speed and performance they need. Launched just last year, the Nimbra 1060 is already used by service providers and broadcasters all over the world for high profile live events like the world’s largest remote production run by Swedish host broadcaster SVT during the Alpine World Ski Championships in February 2019, Åre, 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 Ltd. “Our customized solutions for business customers are distinguished by maximum reliability, availability and performance and together with Net Insight we can accomplish that.”
