Net Insight to Showcase Vision for Customer and Application Provisioned Networks at IBC 2015

Expanded Customer Provisioned Networks offerings with mobile self-service app continue to drive market potential for on-demand network provisioning

Stockholm, Sweden   -  Net Insight, the leading provider of live, interactive and on-demand media transport, today announces the company's vision for the future of customer and application provisioned networks. The company's unique approach to on-demand network provisioning will enable automated, programmable and globally interconnected networks. As part of this vision, Net Insight expands its Customer Provisioned Networks solution with the launch of mobile self-service app Nimbra Connect.

The shift to IP promises the possibility to fully support automated workflows and to interconnect geographically dispersed studios and production facilities across the globe. Net Insight's vision leverages software defined (SDN) and programmable networks to enable applications and entire workflows to automatically provision on-demand network capacity where and when it is needed. Customers will enjoy guaranteed quality, as well as orchestrated services across the media and entertainment ecosystem.

"Net Insight's Customer Provisioned Networks solution is revolutionizing the industry, from making workflows more agile to enabling new business models that are vital to staying competitive in today's rapidly changing media landscape," said Martin Karlsson, CTO and vice president product portfolio at Net Insight. "By expanding this unique on-demand provisioning offering with new tools and application provisioning networks, we're opening up new possibilities for rewarding TV experiences for our customers and their audiences."

The company's highly successful Customer Provisioned Networks solution delivers automated provisioning of network services through a self-service customer portal, today expanded with the new self-service app for iOS, Nimbra Connect. Building on this success, Net Insight's application provisioning enables applications to automatically request connectivity and capacity when needed, as seen with the File-Acceleration-as-a-Service Platform the company announced yesterday. Broadcasters can integrate their workflows and applications across service provider owned networks through open application programmable interfaces (API). This provides service providers with the network flexibility to provide on-demand capacity, while assuring broadcasters only pay for the capacity they need.

Net Insight's Nimbra Connect for Customer Provisioned Networks exemplifies its progress towards its vision. The new easy to use and intuitive self-service application allows for extremely simple and fast service provisioning and enables scheduling, configuring and activation of live broadcast services in less than 15 seconds.
