Net Insight to offer highly scalable and efficient solution that uses ORS's underlying IP infrastructure to distribute DVB-T2 signals nationwide throughout Austria

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Net Insight, a leading provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announces a contract with ORS (Austrian Broadcasting Services GmbH & Co KG), to distribute DVB-T2 signals across Austria.

Net Insight's Nimbra 680 high-capacity MSR will enable efficient and secure multicast through out the network.

"Prior to our decision we have performed tests of the Nimbra platform in our test environment", says Mr Jezek, project manager at ORS. "The test result showed that the Nimbra platform, thanks to its QoS and service integrity features, improves the performance of the underlying IP infrastructure"

The first phase of the rollout is based on more than 40 Nimbra 680 nodes and will begin in the third quarter of 2012. The roll-out of the DVB-T2 network will continue during 2013 and 2014.
