Mobilelinks Broadens Nordic IP Media Network With Net Insight

Mobilelinks expands its Nimbra-based contribution network to increase capacity and offer more services to customers.

Mobilelinks’ media contribution network covers Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and connects to the UK. The network is based on Net Insight’s Nimbra 1060 platform, offering 100G capacity, and is now being expanded to handle more live premium sports and entertainment content for customers such as Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT), IMG, Bonnier Broadcast, Discovery, Warner, NEP, and HDR. NENT’s new network is the latest addition to Mobilelinks’ fast and reliable network for live video and efficient file-based workflows.

“For years, Mobilelinks has provided contribution services over fiber infrastructure using Net Insight’s Nimbra platform,” says Andreas Langell, CEO of Mobilelinks. “Recently one of our core nodes was upgraded to cope with an increased capacity need to Nimbra 1060, and we are therefore confident in expanding our network with more units of this multi-service transport platform, to support our customers accomplishing both live and file-based workflows over the same WAN with guaranteed quality. It also opens up our clients’ facilities to handle remote productions.”

“Mobilelinks is committed to the deliver fast and reliable connectivity and provide superior services to their media customers,” says Ulrik Rohne, VP Media Networks at Net Insight. “And we are delighted to continue working closely with them offering lossless 100G transport of live premium sports and entertainment.”

The order was placed and delivered in the second quarter 2019 and implementation takes place in September.
