Net Insight gains significant Swiss order25 October 2010
Sweden’s Net Insight has been selected by SRG SSR in partnership with Cablecom GmbH to deliver a nationwide network for all publicly owned radio and video related services in Switzerland.
SRG SSR has chosen Net Insight and its Nimbra platform to build a nationwide contribution network and parts of the Swiss distribution services. Cablecom is the prime contractor and is the largest cable network operator in Switzerland providing its customers with services for cable television, broadband Internet access and landline as well as mobile network telephony.
According to a release, the major benefit of implementing the Nimbra platform is to give SRG SSR highest quality of service, control of all video, audio and data services, nationwide, over a single platform. The network will have the capability to transport video and audio services in compressed and uncompressed formats together with Nimbra’s unique multicast and unicast functionality. The media network will also be fully integrated with legacy interfaces which allow the operator to realise operational savings and utilise investments already made.
