Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, has unveiled the IronRoute blended connectivity and cloud-based content distribution solution for media at the NAB Show 2019. IronRoute offers broadcasters, programmers, media organisations, and other content providers, scalable cloud-based content distribution, while solving the challenge of first-and last-mile connectivity to and from the cloud.
By combining the link diversity, service quality, and centralised management benefits of software-defined blended connectivity, IronRoute offers a solution tailored to the needs of broadcasters and media organisations. It delivers connectivity by blending broadband, cellular (3G/4G/5G), and satellite connectivity from Intelsat’s global network. Dejero’s Smart Blending Technology combines available network connections to create a virtual ‘network of networks’ with the necessary bandwidth to deliver broadcast-quality content.
The cloud-based solution simplifies the simultaneous distribution of content to multiple locations anywhere in the world, whether it be network affiliates, station groups, or to other broadcasters and media organisations. Live and file-based content can quickly and easily be distributed point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and multipoint-to-multipoint with a simple drag and drop interface in a web browser.
“With the ability to blend broadband, cellular, and satellite connectivity to move content to and from the cloud, IronRoute for media provides organisations with the reliable connectivity they need, while also simplifying the simultaneous distribution of their content around the globe with an easy-to-use portal for managing connectivity devices and content,” said Todd Schneider, CTO, Dejero.
Bill O’Hara, GM - Media, Intelsat, stated, “Media customers today have a wide array of connectivity requirements. Very rarely does one type of connectivity fit all customer applications, either due to cost, reliability, or reach. IronRoute for media, integrated with Intelsat’s global satellite connectivity, provides the dynamic flexibility to manage cost and reliability in accordance with customer requirements by utilising the right blend of connectivity at the right moment."
