In today’s media and entertainment world, high performance and capacity are key. TV networks, live sports venues, cable companies, movie studios, content providers, and more need network and storage solutions with the bandwidth and scale to handle and move large video and media files—while keeping proprietary information safe and secure. We’ll work closely with you to build and maintain a network that will allow you to deliver your content quickly and efficiently across all your critical locations, while protecting you from costly downtime.
Growing demand: HD and 4K video are increasing the demand for high-bandwidth, high-capacity networks that are capable of distributing large, uncompressed video files. And powerful, far-reaching network assets are required to keep up with the fast-moving pace of today’s media landscape.
Security: When your most valuable assets are your proprietary content, it’s essential that no public traffic can traverse or breach your network or files.
Availability: In today’s 24-hour media environment, downtime isn’t an option. Customers demand uninterrupted access to your content.
Long-haul connectivity: To manage content quality and delivery, media companies need to be able to quickly and efficiently access data centers and distribution hubs from multiple locations.
