Sentech goes to Net Insight for South African DTT delivery

South Africa’s state-owned transmission network operator Sentech has selected Net Insight to deliver contribution services for its national digital terrestrial TV (DTT) network.

Operating one of the largest DTT networks in Africa, Sentech chose Net Insight’s Nimbra Media Switch Routers (MSRs) for contribution services for its fiber-based network.

“Providing signal distribution services to all public and private broadcasters in South Africa, we needed a solution that delivered above and beyond our quality requirements. With similar successful deployments with major players across Europe, we knew Net Insight had the ideal solution to meet our needs,” comments Setumo Mohapi, CEO of Sentech.

The deal, secured through Net Insight’s country partner GDS Technologies, will see the first phase of the project focusing on the contribution aspect of the network to be delivered and fully operational before the end of the first quarter of 2015.
