Net Insight, provider of transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, has announced that the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has ordered the Nimbra platform for expansion of its global fibre network.
EBU, an alliance of public service media organisations, operates EUROVISION, the distributor and producer of TV. EUROVISION provides broadcasters with an array of content, from live sports and news events to entertainment, culture and music. The EUROVISION fibre network is based on Net Insight’s Nimbra platform.
“EBU is our customer since 2004 and have evolved its EUROVISION network continuously to meet increasing customer requirements for more capacity and new services,” said Frederik Trägårdh, pictured, CEO of Net Insight.
EBU will perform several different build-outs of its network to support large global events. The value of the new order exceeds €1million, and delivery will take place during the second quarter of 2013.
