HTN Testing GigE Local Loops From Safeco Field, Coors Field
HTN is now testing new GigE local loops from MLB stadiums in Seattle and Denver. Broadcasts at Seattle’s Safeco Field and Denver’s Coors Field will be transmitted simultaneously via the existing local loop infrastructure and also on the GigE local loop. Net Insight DTM technology will remain at the core of this transport infrastructure, enabling HTN to maintain high network performance while providing the increased bandwidth associated with clients’ launch of new broadcast and data-intensive services.
“We anticipate that the two new GigE loops being tested will give us the additional bandwidth requested by our customers, whether for multiple broadcasts, emerging 3D technology, or data connections that can be used for file transfers, public IP offerings, and more,” says Christian Kneuer, senior director of operations and client relations, HTN.
Existing HTN customers are taking part in HTN’s GigE local loop test in Seattle and Denver. Other companies can request a free test by contacting Kneuer at (212)-239-3715 or firstname.lastname@example.org. As it performs these GigE local loop tests, HTN is moving forward in preparing test sites for NHL and NBA arenas.
