Net Insights Expands Wisconsin Independent Network, Midwest Video Solutions IPTV network
Net Insight reports that Wisconsin Independent Network (WIN) and Midwest Video Solutions, in which WIN has ownership, has expanded its IPTV network with Net Insight’s Nimbra platform.WIN offers state-of-the-art fiber optic network and data center services in the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and beyond.
The first phase of the WIN implementation used Net Insight Nimbra 680 switches to support its Ethernet and IPTV networks. WIN recently ordered the Nimbra 320, Net Insight’s new compact solution for delivery of demanding media services to access locations. The Nimbra 320 allows the WIN network to expand to additional sites and territories while insuring 100 percent QoS and lossless routing for its IPTV network distribution. Net Insight’s efficient multicast capability allows highly reliable video to share the same infrastructure as other premium services.
As part of the WIN expansion, Midwest Video Solutions provides digital television services to communications providers. These services enable WIN’s members to offer robust IPTV services over their telecommunication networks to their subscribers.
“The initial roll-out of our network with the Nimbra platform resulted in immediate and overwhelmingly favorable results, making the decision to expand with Net Insight a simple choice,” says Scott Hoffmann CEO of Wisconsin Independent Network (WIN). “With the expansion, we are now able to extend our territories and guarantee premium, high-quality services to our customers.”
In phase one of the WIN project, Net Insight network measurements proved the existing network infrastructure suffered highly-disruptive percent packet loss on content delivery. With the Nimbra platform, this loss was reduced to zero and WIN’s network tiling and artifact issues disappeared immediately.
“With the expansion of WIN’s IPTV network in the U.S., we are further demonstrating the scalability of the Nimbra platform, as well as our dedication to supporting our customers in all phases of their network build-out,” adds Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO of Net Insight. “Our unique and sophisticated technology continues to give our customers a competitive edge in delivering the highest quality services the consumers demand.”
