IBC 2017: Nevion becomes a Cisco Solution Partner
Nevion announced that it has become a Cisco Solution Partner. The announcement follows on from recent high-profile projects involving both companies. In the past two years, Nevion has worked successfully in key major European deliveries in which the switch fabric was supplied by Cisco, and the media edge along with the management and orchestration was handled by Nevion.
These projects have provided large-scale wide area and campus software defined media networks for national broadcasters. These networks have provided up to 4000 media circuits and aggregate capacity approaching 5 Tb/s.
Bryan Bedford, Global Business Development, Strategy and Channel Lead, Sports, Media and Retail, at Cisco says, “Expanding our relationship with Nevion demonstrates the growth in the industry and progress with multi-vendor interoperability. Working together, we can offer joint customers a full portfolio of the tools they need to launch new services quickly.”
Andy Rayner, Chief Technologist at Nevion adds: “We are pleased to formally cement our relationship with Cisco, already having a proven track record of delivering successful key projects for broadcasters and service providers together. Nevion is a firm believer in customer choice and working with leading switch vendors such as Cisco, means that our customers can decide the solution that best fit their needs.”
Nevion is exhibiting at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam (booth B.71 in Hall 1), next to the Cisco booth (A.71).
