Genesis Networks’ fiber circuit links keep ION Media remote networks connected

ION Media Networks has chosen the Genesis Networks fiber infrastructure to provide reliable and permanent connectivity between WPXN, ION Media's television station serving the New York market, and the ION network operations center (NOC) in Clearwater, FL. ION Media Networks is also using the fiber network to distribute to stations in Southern Florida.

David Goosey, senior systems engineer for ION Media Networks, said the new agreement replaces the station’s existing lower-bandwidth Clearwater-to-New York connection. The Genesis network includes value-added network monitoring services, which helps manage feeds.

The services provided by Genesis Networks for ION Media Networks include an ASI duplex fiber circuit that connects several ION Media facilities with the Genesis point of presence in Miami, as well as all required transmission hardware, application configuration, and a fully managed ASI transmission service. The link supplied by Genesis Networks offers a secure fiber connection between the ION NOC and ION stations WPXM in Miami and WPXP in West Palm Beach.
