SIS Live Provides Critical Connectivity with 1Gb Fibre Network For Input Media

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 .

Additionally, on top of providing fibre, SIS LIVE will also offer SNG back-up as Europe’s largest supplier of satellite uplinks. This will accommodate a switch to satellite if necessary to ensure continuous live coverage. Some venues will also have microwave links installed to guarantee fully comprehensive live coverage from every game.

SIS LIVE’s portfolio is expanding rapidly and we will be adding many new venues to our fibre network in the next few months. We look forward to supporting Input Media to successfully deliver its renowned live broadcasting.”
