Through Unique MSR functionality Net Insight enhances the video performance of
                                  IP networks

AMSTERDAM,  (IBC) -  Net Insight,  a leading  provider of efficient and scalable
transport  solutions for  media, IP  and broadcast  networks, is  addressing the
pressure  that the telecoms and media network  operators are facing owing to the
exponential  growth in video and other  media services. Net Insight's unique MSR
functionality  enhances the performance of the IP networks for media traffic and
creates truly service aware media networks.

Net  Insight's award-winning Nimbra  platform with its  unique MSR functionality
has  the  ability  to  provide  service-centric network management, QoS Enhanced
Links  and lossless routing.  This functionality enables  Net Insight to deliver
100% Quality  of Service and service  integrity in IP media  networks as well as
enhancing the performance of the IP networks.

The  Service-Centric Network Management handles  each media service individually
within  the IP  network to  be truly  aware of  each service.  As a  result, Net
Insight can provision, monitor and protect each one individually on demand on an
end-to-end  basis. This means  that it is  possible to remove  and add services,
provision  multicast  video  streams,  set  special  protection  features  for a
specific   service,  without  interfering  or  affecting  the  provisioning  and
protection of the IP core infrastructure.

With  QoS Enhanced Links, Net Insight's  MSR (Media Switch Routers), the Nimbra,
takes  action at each hop to enhance the performance of the IP infrastructure by
improving  the quality of the traffic sent  between each Nimbra over the core IP
network.  It  performs  forward  error  correction  (FEC)  to reduce packet loss
created  between  any  Nimbra  MSRs,  traffic  shaping  to  facilitate  resource
allocation  and SLA ensurance  for the IP  network and resynchronization in each
MSR,  to reduce end-to-end jitter and  wander. Additionally, the Nimbra measures
packet loss and jitter in real-time and on all intermediate links, measuring the
health of the network without costly external probe monitoring systems.

Lossless  Routing guarantees zero  packet loss i.e.  from ingress port to egress
port,  the Nimbra,  thanks to  its MSR  functionality, never  loses a packet and
never adding any QoS degradation to the media services.

"Net  Insight is the  only company delivering  true service aware media networks
and  at the  same time  offer lossless  routing and  the ability  to improve the
performance of the IP network to reduce packet loss, jitter and wander for media
traffic",  says  Per  Lindgren,  VP  Business  Development and co-founder at Net
