ONE CONNXT assists broadcasters during NileSat 101 relocation
Global transport specialist ONE CONNXT has been providing a variety of broadcast customers with a proprietary solution to ensure continued delivery to locations lying outside of NileSat 101’s altered footprint. Operated by Egyptian satellite company NileSat and serving countries in North Africa, South Europe and Middle East, NileSat 101 changed orbital position on 2 December.
The development affected channels on the satellite that transmit content to Europe. As a result of the changes, several Middle Eastern channels lost their signals and were dark for more than 24 hours.
Operating within its current network, ONE CONNXT worked to enable broadcasters to get their services back on air as soon as possible.
Mark Lobwein, head of global sales for ONE CONNXT, comments: “It has been a trying time for the team during the last few weeks in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York. But we are absolutely committed to assisting broadcasters in their time of need.
“ONE CONNXT’s technology is a huge advancement for the broadcast industry. Until now, broadcasters had to spend a lot of money and manpower to enable and maintain redundancy solutions for their content. ONE CONNXT provides a total solution for both primary and backup feeds, with complete flexibility for all platforms. Whether a broadcaster is sending a live feed from a sporting event, backing up an entire network, or simply sending service from a hard to reach location, ONE CONNXT always has you covered.”
