Net Insight receives order for Digital Terrestrial TV network

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – Net Insight, leading developer of efficient and scalable optical transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, has received an order from Dialog Telekom for a Digital Terrestrial TV network in Sri Lanka.

Dialog Telekom, a leading broadcaster and satellite operator in Sri Lanka, will implement a first phase of Net Insight’s Nimbra platform in a distribution network from headend to four transmitter sites. The agreement includes two additional phases of expansion to a national DVB-T network.

Net Insight received a first order in 2008 for a pilot project which has been successful and the strengths of the Nimbra platform, such as high reliability and full redundancy with headend protection as well as scalable and robust ASI multicast, have been crucial factors for the new order. The solution also includes Net Insight’s unique IP trunk solution for migration to an all-IP media network.

The Nimbra platform is a versatile transport solution with several unique features for DTT and Mobile TV networks. In addition, Nimbra offers a flexible and cost-effective solution for delivering advanced multimedia services in Broadcast and Media networks and for IPTV/CATV distribution. TV operators deploying Digital Terrestrial TV based on the Nimbra platform not only get a DTT network but a multiservice transport infrastructure that opens up new business opportunities, turning the network into a very powerful media contribution platform.

“We are very pleased that Dialog has chosen Net Insight and our Nimbra platform for their network and look forward to continue our business partnership,” says Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO of Net Insight.
