Siemens chooses Harris’ networking system


Harris’ NetVX system enables the BBC to use parallel networks for its contributions to and from Washington.
Siemens Business Services has purchased Harris’ NetVX high-speed integrated video transport networking system for BBC News. The sale follows a successful test during last year’s coverage of the U.S. presidential election.

In 2004, BBC News was in the process of digitizing its Washington Bureau so the election became the ideal event to test the capabilities of NetVX. Within two days NetVX was installed to enable the BBC to use parallel networks for contributions to and from Washington.

NetVX provides a flexible platform that can handle multiple packet-based architectures such as ATM and IP over multiple networks. It also can scale to meet the BBC’s future requirements.

With NetVX, analog or digital video, audio, and/or data can be transported over any combination of networks simultaneously. NetVX systems can support various contribution and/or distribution applications including point-to-point or point-to-multipoint, local or centralized, unidirectional or bi-directional.
