Net Insight Introduces New Resource Management Solution into Nimbra Vision

, ,
New interface provides streamlined resource booking for on-demand services


AMSTERDAM  (IBC 2010) - September 10, 2010 - Net Insight, a leading developer of
efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks,
today  announced the  capability to  integrate Net  Insight's Nimbra  Vision and
ScheduALL's  ScheduLINK to  provide streamlined  resource booking  for on-demand
services in Nimbra networks.

Avoiding  resource conflicts is critical when dedicating resources in a network.
Now,  thanks  to  an  interface  that  Net  Insight  and  ScheduALL have jointly
developed,  network operators  can use  the -north­bound  XML inter­face  of the
Nimbra  Vision Network Manager, a  comprehensive tool for centralized monitoring
and  control  of  Nimbra  networks,  with  the  ScheduLINK  enterprise  resource
management  solution. The integration facilitates planning and booking of Nimbra
network resources via the ScheduLINK system, guaranteeing that network operators
avoid  resource  conflicts  when  establishing  on-demand  services.  To further
streamline  the resource booking workflow, ScheduLINK provides automatic invoice
creation and integrated accounts receivable tools.

With  this  integration  Nimbra  Vision  remains  the Network Management System,
responsible  for monitoring and  controlling the Nimbra  network. It also allows
the operator to provision services outside of those booked in ScheduLINK.

Due  to the flexibility of the Nimbra solution, operators need only to configure
source  and  destination  interfaces  when  provisioning  services;  the network
elements  optimize and set up the actual path  through the network. In case of a
network failure, the network elements swiftly re-route affected services without
the  involvement  of  any  Network  Management  System. If the operator wants to
control where the traffic actually flows through the network, the Nimbra network
supports  source routing. When using static  routes, rerouting on failure can be
done  by setting up a  prioritized list of source  routes, which can be used for
each service to provide protection.

"The  joint integration between Nimbra  Vision and ScheduLINK gives broadcasters
and  media  companies  using  a  Nimbra-based  network a significant competitive
advantage",  said Per Lindgren,  VP Business Development  of Net Insight. "These
operators  not only  have a  network that  can handle  the most  demanding video
traffic,  but fully automated management capabilities  that allow them to ensure
smooth workflow."
