Net Insight nets EBU Olympics order13 March 2008
Net Insight has received a further order from the EBU to upgrade and expand the Eurovision Nimbra network, mainly for the TV feeds from the Olympic Games in Beijing. The order contains an upgrade of the Eurovision backbone network with Net Insight’s high capacity Nimbra 680 switch as well as more Nimbra One and Nimbra 340 access nodes. The order will be delivered during the first quarter 2008.
The majority of the special TV feeds from the Olympics are brought to the European public TV broadcasters over the EBU’s fibre network. As the EBU_s network is based on Net Insight_s Nimbra technology and with millions of TV viewers all over Europe, this expansion is true confirmation that Net Insight_s solution delivers quality and reliability during events where 100% quality of service is required.
“It is an honour to have been trusted for many years by Eurovision for the technology transporting feeds from major mission critical news and sport events around the world”, said Fredrik Tr_g_rdh, CEO of Net Insight.
