SIS LIVE has installed a 1Gb fibre network for Input Media, a sports production company. Granting Input Media access to its expanding ‘Anylive’ fibre infrastructure and comprehensive satellite services, SIS LIVE will fully support Input Media’s broadcast requirements.

SIS LIVE, the connectivity provider of choice for critical media content, will work with Input Media to deliver resilient connectivity via the Anylive network between Input Media, sports venues, and SIS LIVE's teleports and network operation centres (NOCs) in the UK at MediaCityUK and Milton Keynes .
