Net Insights Wins Prestigious 2015 IABM Design & Innovation Award

Broadcast and digital media industry body recognizes company's innovation and creativity in system automation and control

Stockholm, Sweden - Net Insight, the leading provider of live, interactive and on-demand media transport, today announces that IABM has named the company's Customer Provisioned Network (CPN) solution as a recipient of the 2015 IABM Design & Innovation Awards in the System Automation and Control category. The awards cast a spotlight on new solutions and products that create new opportunities for the broadcast and media industry.

The need for more flexible and agile workflows is changing the broadcast and media industry. It is driving technology shifts to IP, file-based workflows, and software-based media processing. The full potential of these new workflows, however, can only be unlocked if service providers deliver connectivity and capacity on-demand, and place content producers and broadcasters in control of where and when they have connectivity.

Using software defined networking, Net Insight's customer provisioned network (CPN) solution gives service providers access to on-demand connectivity. This can be provisioned on a per-minute basis with full control of network capacity. Services with guaranteed bandwidth, guaranteed quality and guaranteed SLAs can be booked through a self-service app in just seconds. Connections can be set up immediately or scheduled for future use with complete automation of the entire order-to-bill process.

"Our CPN makes it as easy to book connectivity as it is to buy a plane ticket online," said Martin Karlsson, CTO and VP product portfolio at Net Insight. "This IABM award recognizes our success in supporting customers with the ability to effectively compete via our innovation in automation and control. Our recent acquisition of ScheduALL clearly shows our future ambition in the area and strengthens our ability to innovate".

Net Insight's customer provisioned network solution is being showcased at the company's IBC 2015 show stand (#1.B40) in Amsterdam, from September 11-15.
