Net Insight selected for next-generation media network connecting stadiums for Austria Football Bundesliga

Stockholm, Sweden - Net Insight, the leading provider in streaming, media transport and resource scheduling, today announces that MTI Teleport has built a media network for Sky Austria based on the new terabit capacity router Nimbra 1060.

The new media network connects 12 football stadiums throughout Austria with Sky Austria's premises and MTI Teleport's Network Operation Center, for the Austrian Football Bundesliga. It delivers uncompressed video and data services via 10 Gbps links enabling distributed workflows, that creates positive synergies for rights holders and production facilities.

"Net Insight's well-proven technology is essential for us and the Nimbra 1060 gives us unsurpassed scalability," says David Müller, Director Product Management at MTI. "It makes us even more competitive in the network services market for media and live sports."

"We have a long and solid partnership with MTI Teleport together with SHM Broadcast that we have built over the years," says Henrik Sund, CEO of Net Insight. "With our new platform we will help MTI Teleport to meet future capacity and flexibility needs for live sports as we move into IP based production workflows."

The order was won together with Net Insight's partner SHM Broadcast and the network went live in July.

Nimbra 1060 is Net Insight's next generation terabit router with NFV oriented architecture, providing assured and agile wide area network transmission of all-IP media services. Nimbra 1060 manages traditional media services as well as IP-based media services such as SMPTE 2110 across wide area networks; interconnecting event sites, stadiums, studios, and production sites easily without complex traffic engineering.

Other sports leagues that run over MTI Teleport's Nimbra-based networks are the German Football Bundesliga 1 and 2, the Basketball league, the Ice Hockey league and the Handball league. Other sports events such as Champion league games also run over MTI Teleport's networks, with the final being broadcasted in 4K already in 2015.
