18 JUNE 2009 -- Net Insight (search Lightwave for Net Insight), a provider of optical transport offerings for media, broadcast, and IP networks, has received an order for delivery of additional Nimbra equipment to Teracom's media contribution network.
In 2008, Teracom deployed a core network interconnecting its media contribution networks in Stockholm, Göteborg, and Malmö. The network handles simultaneous transport of uncompressed and compressed video (HD-SDI, SD-SDI, and ASI) based on Net Insight's Nimbra 680 and the eight-port Video Access Module, which allows for a variety of configurations and a mix of service content.
Teracom is owned by the Swedish government and operates Sweden's broadcasting infrastructure.
The service provider is now expanding its media contribution network with an additional site in Copenhagen for transport of multiple TV feeds to the Danish digital terrestrial TV network. The equipment will be delivered in the second quarter of 2009.
"Our Nimbra-based contribution network enables us to deliver a flexible mix of highly reliable media services in support of our growing business operations," says Magnus Sjöberg, manager, network design, at Teracom.
The Nimbra 680 is a next-generation multiservice switch designed to meet the rich media and data service needs of the carrier and service provider markets, including high switching capacity, end-to-end provisioning and restoration, full topology support, multicast support, and 100% quality of service guaranteed. Equipped with the 8 x Video Access Module, it offers flexibility for studio, contribution, and distribution networks. Each of the module's eight ports can be individually configured as ASI In or ASI Out, as well as standard definition (SD) or high definition (HD) SDI. Seven blades can be added per switch, delivering up to 56 universal video ports.
