Net Insight's media solutions for new Core Network Upgrade for Arqiva

Stockholm, Sweden 7 March 2013 - Net Insight, a leading developer of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announces that Arqiva Satellite & Media has selected Net Insight for an extension of its existing Nimbra-based media network.

Arqiva Satellite & Media, a communications infrastructure and media services company, offers uplinking, connectivity and playout solutions to the global broadcast market. The company is at the forefront of network solutions and services in the digital world and provides much of the infrastructure behind television, radio, satellite and wireless communications in the UK and has a significant presence in Ireland, mainland Europe and the USA.

The media network from Net Insight enables Arqiva to operate efficiently through a single platform and to bring new services to its broadcast customers in a cost-efficient way. The new core network enables Arqiva to provide uncompressed media services between its main core uplink locations in order to meet the ever increasing demand for these types of services from its clients. By extending with Net Insight, Arqiva has the flexibility to offer bulk delivery of ASI, IP, SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and JPEG2000 compressed versions of SD, HD and 3G SDI, from any port to any port in its core network and in any direction, be it unicast or multicast. By upgrading the core network Arqiva increases capability to provide bulk uncompressed media services.

Delivery took place during 2012 and the network will be operational during the first quarter of 2013.

The extension adds new Nimbra core nodes utilizing 160G Switches and 10G trunks at its main uplink locations as well as JPEG2000 Video Access modules. In total Arqiva now has more than 160 Nimbra nodes installed across Europe and the USA.

"This enables us to have a single platform which can be configured on a port by port basis to adapt to the media needs of our clients," says John Bozza, Sales Director, Europe at Arqiva. "The Nimbra platform offers a cost efficient and flexible solution for expansion and resiliency purposes."
