Nevion—a provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities—is set to debut its second-generation VideoIPath platform, an integrated hardware/software solution for delivery of managed video and audio services.
VideoIPath enables users to control network routing between media edge devices, providing the flexibility to control network redundancy, bandwidth allocation and divert traffic around link failures, using multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) or virtual local area networks (VLAN), Nevion says.
VideoIPath now also provides users with the ability to manage network element inventory for centralized supervision and maintenance functions. Virtual element management provides the ability to access equipment using in-band management, removing the need for dedicated management connections particularly for remote locations or customer premises, the company says.
“VideoIPath incorporates new features that further elevate the ability to manage, protect and provide more flexibile IP-based video networking,” said Eugene Keane, Nevion’s CTO. Those advancements are critical to enabling broadcasters and service providers to better monetize content of all types and the networks that transport them, he addes.
VideoIPath is a fully integrated system, providing IP video transport for contribution networks with comprehensive, end-to-end control, monitoring and management, all from one intuitive interface. The platform’s managed video services encompass complete provisioning, connection management, bandwidth optimization, analytics and network inventory, the firm says.
