Fox Sports gets Juniper HD boost

15 Jul 2010

Australian sports broadcaster Premier Media Group has deployed a new network, running Juniper’s Junos operating system.

The aim of the deal is to be able to offer better program quality and deliver more high-definition content to its Fox Sports customers via Juniper Networks EX4200 ethernet switches.

“These switches are installed in broadcast production vehicles that travel around the country, so we needed a solution that’s very reliable – bomb proof,” said Tony Scanlan, Chief Technology Officer, Premier Media Group.

“Like the EX4200 switches, Juniper’s MX240 routers are very reliable and offer rock-solid performance. Additionally, with the Junos operating system running across all the Juniper devices, our staff no longer has to manage disparate network devices. Junos OS is very intuitive and has a centralised management platform that has simplified our processes and dramatically increased productivity.”

Mike Banic, VP of Enterprise Marketing for Juniper, added, “Live television broadcasting demands the highest network reliability and capacity with low latency and jitter. The new network with a single-sourced Junos operating system increases reliability by eliminating complexities, streamlining operations and improving management controls for a better experience. The simplified new network architecture removes high latency and jitter to deliver a premium viewing experience for PMG’s customers and reduces the company’s capital and operational costs.”
