Nimbras 140, 230 and 320 broaden the Nimbra suite of products
        bringing Net Insight's benefits further into the network access

AMSTERDAM,  (IBC) -  Net Insight,  a leading  provider of efficient and scalable
transport  solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announced a new
portfolio  for  contribution  and  distribution  network  access. These products
enable  Net Insight to offer its  customers a more complete end-to-end transport
solution  bringing the Nimbra portfolio's unique QoS and service-centric control
further into the customers' premises.

As  cost-effective,  high-performance  access  solutions for multi-services, the
products  widen the reach  of the Nimbra  platform enabling network operators to
further  expand their network to new end-customers and new applications. As part
of  the  whole  Nimbra  suite,  Nimbras  140, 230 and  320 are  supported by Net
Insight's Service-Centric Network Management tool, Nimbra Vision.

Nimbra 140 series - The Broadcast Fiber Optic Access Platform
Net  Insight introduces a  new series of  high-quality, cost effective broadcast
appliances,   including  O/E  converters  for  video  over  fiber  applications,
wavelength/TDM  multiplexers, audio embedders and optical failover switches. The
Nimbra  140 series is ideal  for cost-effective aggregation  of video, audio and
data services to the Nimbra 300 and 600 series MSR (Media Switch Routers).

The Nimbra 140 series is divided into two families of products. The Multiservice
Modular  System with  subracks and  enclosures in  different formfactors,  and a
large range of functional modules for broadcast applications, and the Fiber Link
Access System with low cost, high density optical link modules for SD/HD/3G/ASI.

Nimbra 230 - The Metro Ethernet Access Switch
Nimbra  230 is  the  first  all  Ethernet  switch solution from Net Insight that
allows  media  network  owners  to  expand  their  Ethernet  access network with
enhanced,  performance  monitoring  and  end-to-end  service  provisioning. This
product  is a  Carrier-Class Ethernet  access switch  ideal for Ethernet service
demarcation, extension and aggre­gation.

The  Nimbra 230 features  12 GE ports  (SFP/RJ45), has  a rugged fan-less design
handling extended operating temperatures, dual redundant AC/-48VDC power feeding
and ultra-low power consumption.
With  flexible combo ports, advanced  features for QoS and  OAM, and support for
ITU-T  Synchronous  Ethernet  (Sync-E),  the  Nimbra  230 enables differentiated
services  over  Carrier  Ethernet  networks  to  allow  for new applications and
business opportunities.

Nimbra 320 - The Compact Multiservice IP Gateway
The  Nimbra  320 is  a  compact  one-box  access solution for true multi-service
transport  of  media  and  data  services,  targeting the increasing demands for
transport  of real-time  sensitive media  and data  applications with guaranteed

Applications  range from high-end  video services such  as studio production and
con­tribution,  to  broadcast  distribution  in  IPTV/  Cable  TV  or DTT/Mobile

With  8 built-in  Gigabit  Ethernet  ports,  2 SFP  trunk ports and one slot for
Nimbra  300 series  plug-in  units,  it  provides  QoS  transport  over  either:
SDH/SONET  or IP/ MPLS/Ethernet networks  for a large variety  of data and media
applications.  A unique  Time Transfer  functionality provides  near-GPS quality
timing via fiber for reliable and independent timing support.

The integrated trunk ports can be con­figured as either: OC-3/STM-1, OC-12/ STM-
4, OC-48/STM-16 or    10/100/1000 IP/Ethernet    giving    the   Nimbra   320 an
unprecedented   flexibility  and  superior  cost-efficiency.  With  support  for
IP/Ethernet  trunks it can utilize cost effective Ethernet last mile connections
for  the transport of multiple services,  using the Nimbra platform's unique QoS
enhanced  links to  improve QoS  of the  IP infrastructure and ensure end-to-end
service integrity.
Like  the  other  switches  in  the  Nimbra series, Nimbra 320 features lossless
routing  a control  plane for  automated end-to-end provisioning (uni/multicast)
and  re-routing resilience against network faults. With up to 8 ASI/SDI ports or
16 Ethernet  ports, support for  any topology, QoS  multicast and with a carrier
class  optical  control  plane  Nimbra  320 is  ready  to  take  on  the task of
nationwide DTT distribution and BMN contribution networks.
