24 NOVEMBER 2008 -- Net Insight (search for Net Insight) has received a further order from the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) to upgrade the Eurovision network with the high-capacity Nimbra 688 switches.
Based on the Nimbra platform, the EBU operates its Eurovision fiber network for seamless, secure, high-performance transport of live video from major news and sports events to broadcast customers in Europe, North America, and Asia. Over the years the EBU has extended its Nimbra-based Eurovision network to cater for additional services, capacity, and customer connections.
Driven by increasing traffic volumes, the EBU has now decided to upgrade some of its main sites with Net Insight's new, high-capacity Nimbra 688 switches. The Nimbra 688 offers redundant 80-Gbit/sec switching capacity and twice the access and trunk port count of other switches in the series. With the Nimbra 688 in the core network, Eurovision is strengthening its capabilities to meet the future requirements of its customers for real time content delivery of top sports and news events.
Delivery and installation of the Nimbra 688 switches will occur in the December to February time frame.
