"As the provider of local and long-haul transmission services for the biggest names in the media business, MediaXstream is extremely selective in what technology we use in our network," reports Wayne Price, CTO of MediaXstream. "With Net Insight, we can deliver a leading, all-digital network that exceeds the growing needs and demands of our customers."
MediaXstream launched its new network using Net Insight's Nimbra platform to carry real-time traffic for professional media companies across the U.S. According to MediaXstream representatives, Net Insight's platform enables them to meet the rigorous 100% quality-of-service (QoS) and availability demands of the professional media industry.
MediaXstream built out the first phase of its network in 17 of North America's largest cities, including New York, Washington DC, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
