NOVEMBER 9, 2009 -- Net Insight, a developer of scalable optical transport devices for media, IP, and broadcast networks, has supplied Nimbra switches to Midwest Video Solutions (MVS), a provider of digital TV services, to provide a virtual headend feed from MVS's facilities in Westby, WI, to a U.S. military base in Japan.

Delivering 100% quality of service, says Net Insight, allows customers to transport any service to any network location without packet loss. The optimized Nimbra platform meets the needs of broadcasters, media networks, IPTV/cable TV operators, metro Ethernet, and telecom operators in one system, according to the company. Headend operators can use the Nimbra platform to form virtual headend services with scalable Layer-2 multicast and no packet loss.

"The Nimbra platform has significantly reduced bit-error rates in our service, allowing us to deliver a pristine IPTV service half way around the world," says Marty Snustead, executive director of MVS. "We are currently using Net Insight's solution as part of our statewide digital TV service for local communications providers in Wisconsin and recently made the decision to use the Nimbra 360 to provide our service to a key customer in Japan."

"We are very pleased to have MVS as a partner for the IPTV market," adds Fredrik Trägårdh, chief executive officer of Net Insight. "Combining extensive content, uncompromising network transport quality, and first-class customer service is what local communications providers seek when looking to offer IPTV services to their customers."

Net Insight and MVS will be onsite at TelcoTV (Booth #1039) in Orlando, FL from Nov. 10-12, 2009 with product displays and service demos.
