Russian's largest telecom operator will utilize the Nimbra platform to achieve the highest possible Quality of Service

MOSCOW, (CSTB' 14 Booth 525); Russia - Net Insight, a leading provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announces that Rostelecom, a new customer, has selected the company's Nimbra platform for live video transport feeds for a major winter sports event taking place in Russia in February.

With Net Insight's Nimbra platform, Rostelecom will transport live video feeds from Sochi to Moscow for a major national broadcaster during an international winter sporting event. The telecom operator selected Net Insight for its compact and highly versatile platform that is especially suited for occasional use services and meeting demands for fast time to market.

Rostelecom is a nationwide telecommunications enterprise and the largest universal communications operator in Russia, serving more than 100 million subscribers in 80 regions. Rostelecom offers cutting-edge fixed and mobile telephony, broadband access, pay TV and cloud solutions to consumers and businesses.

"Rostelecom will deploy Net Insight's Nimbra platform in order to serve our customers' contribution needs during the upcoming sporting event," says Igor Kachalov, senior specialist, service TV & radio company department at Rostelecom. "The Nimbra platform not only provides a highly stable JPEG2000 compression solution but also ensures advanced protection mechanisms. These benefits in combination with Net Insight's and Kontur-M's professional services were imperative in selecting the Nimbra platform."

"Adding Rostelecom to our list of major service providers demonstrates that our Nimbra platform is the ideal solution for mission-critical live sports broadcasting," says Fredrik Tumegård, CEO at Net Insight. "Net Insight has set the pace for innovation in the industry, and with this latest customer win, we are strengthening our presence in Russia as we strive to support the needs of our customers' networks."
