GlobeCast has signed a deal with Net Insight AB in Stockholm, Sweden, to upgrade its worldwide global fiber network at about 30 locations in Europe, Asia and the United States.

The deal follows the installation and implementation in early 2006 of a network to carry more than 100 video, voice and data channels between GlobeCast's facilities in France.

GlobeCast, a subsidiary of France Telecom, is a global content management and delivery company. Via its worldwide satellite and fiber network, the company manages and transports 10 million hours of video and other media yearly for its customers.

"As our customer base grows and the use of HD increases, our network needs to keep up with the pace. Net Insight is a logical partner for us in this effort and will help us ensure maximum reliability and quality of service," says Philippe Gautron, senior vice president of Marketing and Product Development at GlobeCast.
