February 19, 2015

Net Insight, a provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, has announced that its transport solution has been selected by South Africa’s state-owned transmission network operator Sentech, to deliver contribution services for its national DTT network.

Operating one of the largest DTT networks in Africa, Sentech chose Net Insight’s Nimbra Media Switch Routers (MSRs) for contribution services for its fiber-based network. By leveraging the features of Nimbra products that combine unique lossless routing with state-of-the-art switching architecture, Sentech will benefit from uncompromised quality of service (QoS) and content integrity in its DTT network. Furthermore, Net Insight’s solutions will enable Sentech to combine native video/audio service transport capabilities with carrier-class Metro Ethernet switching for a high-quality multiservice solution.

“Providing signal distribution services to all public and private broadcasters in South Africa, we needed a solution that delivered above and beyond our quality requirements. With similar successful deployments with major players across Europe, we knew Net Insight had the ideal solution to meet our needs.” says Setumo Mohapi, CEO of Sentech.
