Competitive needs of television broadcasters have changed dramatically in recent years. Audiences increasingly seek not just traditional broadcast TV but also Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) – TV delivered through the internet, anytime, anywhere and on any device. With a greater reliance on IPTV offerings as a competitive differentiator, it’s critical that the broadcaster’s network infrastructure be up to the task.
Beijing TV (BTV) is a broadcaster taking the lead in the IPTV revolution, competing within China and Asia for an audience of 800 million viewers. The demands of maintaining a high quality of service also puts an enormous strain on the network. If any issues arise, BTV needs to continue to broadcast television services across any platform while issues are being resolved. In the event of system failure – BTV cannot stop high-quality of service broadcasting without the threat of losing both audiences as well as advertisers. TV stations need to consider the networking infrastructure that will support their needs today, and well into the future. Their network deployment needs to scale in order to meet these needs without compromising data delivery quality.
