Net Insight is introducing what it believes is a market-first, easy-to-integrate appliance to solve common challenges within IP media networking.
The Trust Boundary Appliance provides an ‘all-in-one’ way of safeguarding IP media transport across networks, said the company.
Net Insight added that the appliance is the first security and control point in the market to be specifically designed for capacity up to 40 Gbps. It contains the Net Insight IP Media Trust Boundary technology in an off-the-shelf, cost-effective, and easy-to-use device, which the company said removes the need to deploy generic IT firewalls and solutions. The solution delivers greater security at a lower cost than a traditional firewall because it enables IP media to pass through a Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) media proxy, said Net Insight.
The Trust Boundary Appliance terminates a media flow at the network boundary and re-establishes it at the destination network, without disrupting other active IP media flow, which means it prevents outages and security risks, including hijacking and spoofing, while preserving the integrity of established flows. The solution enables the monitoring and assurance of the IP media payload as it passes between networks with ETR 101/290 P1 performance metrics, frozen frames, and audio silence, added Net Insight.
“Broadcasters and production companies’ transition to IP is hindered by the complexity of connecting different media domains while maintaining media secure,” said Crister Fritzson, CEO at Net Insight. “With the launch of the Trust Boundary Appliance, we address these fundamental challenges, giving customers full control over their networks. With our single open platform that integrates with any IP media network, Net Insight leads the way in industry standardisation, continuing our effort of making the transition to IP truly simple, seamless, and secure.”
