TeliaSonera International Carrier selects Net Insight

TeliaSonera International Carrier, has launched one of the most extensive media networks in Europe, and has selected Net Insight as the sole equipment vendor. The new media network is an overlay to the existing TeliaSonera International Carrier fibre network. The deal will incorporate the latest Net Insight Nimbra platform to provide a high capacity, high performance international network to meet the growing expectations of the professional media community.

Broadcasters and professional media companies face a significant challenge to be able to transport an ever growing number of channels as well as a increasing amount of HD-TV programming, contribution feeds and large video files. Existing international terrestrial and satellite networks do not have sufficient bandwidth or flexibility to offer a long-term solution.

“Our new media network provides a mix of real-time and contribution quality video services, on both a dedicated and occasional use basis. The network ensures 100 percent quality of service even when operating at full capacity on any particular link. It also provides the security and reliability demanded by our customers in the professional media community”says Ingvar Larsson CEO TeliaSonera International Carrier. “Net Insight provides the necessary functionality, scalability and security we require to be able to successfully launch a range of media specific products and services throughout Europe.”

“We are delighted that Net Insight has been selected by TeliaSonera International Carrier”, says Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO Net Insight. “We will deliver a combination of our new products Nimbra 340 and Nimbra 680 in support of TeliaSonera International Carrier’s move into the fast growing professional media services business by providing our leading edge products and efficient support services.

“Customers will benefit from significantly reduced operational and bandwidth costs”, says Ingvar Larsson, CEO TeliaSonera International Carrier.
