​LTN Global Launches LTN Wave

LTN Wave, a terrestrial IP-based distribution solution, is designed as an alternative to satellite distribution. LTN Wave brings together LTN’s transport, monitoring and control solutions to enable broadcast quality multicast distribution over IP.

“LTN Wave puts new revenue-enabling opportunities at customer fingertips, with greater customization and targeted advertising features as standard,” says Malik Khan, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of LTN Global. “Now, with LTN Wave heralds the future of the broadcast industry as IP-based workflows continue to evolve and take hold of video production, contribution, distribution, and monetization.”

LTN Wave provides access to the benefits of IP distribution while still maintaining existing satellite-driven workflows. This enables a “seamlessly integrated combination of workflows to maximize revenue-generating potential for content”.

Whether replacing satellite completely or implementing backhaul or secondary paths in a hybrid distribution approach, channel owners and content networks can use LTN’s IP-based video workflow solutions to transport their content from sources to destinations over the fully-managed LTN Network.

“There are a number of challenges in the marketplace right now pushing channel owners to explore alternatives to satellite distribution, which can be a daunting prospect,” said Michal Miskin-Amir, GM, Transport Division at LTN Global. “We know that ripping and replacing satellite infrastructure wholesale simply isn’t practical as networks look to reduce the risk associated with maintaining a portfolio of channels heavily reliant on C-band satellite. LTN Wave is the perfect solution for seamlessly bridging the transition from satellite to IP.”

LTN Wave is able to reach any destination or location, whether through direct connection to the LTN Network, handoffs with public cloud networks such as AWS and Azure, or connections to private data centers.

“The LTN transport network powering LTN Wave relies on a backbone of expertly-engineered protocols for Dynamic Multi-Carrier routing and Rapid Error Recovery. This gives the LTN Network a unique advantage over public internet protocols, able to circumvent public Internet congestion as a private network with multiple underlying ISP carriers for unrivaled reliability. The LTN Network will intelligently pick the optimal path for video transmission to guarantee fixed delay and eliminate packet loss and jitter.”
