Net Insight Recognized by Broadband Technology Report for Outstanding Cable Solution

Nimbra VA 220 receives impressive rating from cable industry judges in Diamond Technology Reviews

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Net Insight, a leading developer of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announces that its Nimbra VA 220 was awarded 4 Diamonds in Broadband Technology Report's prestigious 2014 Diamond Technology Reviews.

In order to add services and remain competitive, operators must find ways to increase their return on investment (ROI) and reduce OPEX. This can be achieved with Net Insight's Nimbra VA 220, which utilizes the public Internet and other best-effort networks for media transport, as opposed to costly leased lines or satellite contribution links.

Net Insight's Nimbra VA 220 video appliance enables fast and cost-efficient media transport over the Internet, combining the powerful media protection capabilities of the company's previous Nimbra VA 210, with built-in state-of-the-art high performance encoding and decoding. In addition, with the Nimbra VA 220's built-in low latency encoder and decoder in combination with the transport layer enable fixed and predictable latency. Latency issues are resolved further enhancing the quality of service (QoS).

"The Diamond Technology Reviews always highlight the most compelling products for operators each year. Our great panel of judges saw Net Insight's value in managing bandwidth through compression and use of unmanaged networks. Cable operators are looking for ways to increase efficiency and reduce overhead and that's what gets the judges excited. They obviously voted their approval!," says Tom Gorman, 2014 Diamond Review Chair and President of opXL.

"Overcoming the cost and technical barriers for transport over best-effort networks is a key challenge for operators who need to provide the highest possible QoS," says Martin Karlsson, vice president product portfolio at Net Insight. "Net Insight developed the Nimbra VA 220 for cable operators and over-the-top (OTT) providers to make the most of their networks without the burden of increased OPEX and expensive network upgrades. These are the key factors of being recognized by Broadband Technology Report."
