Next Generation Broadcast Network Applications

Time 10/06/15 11:20AM-12:00PM

Room Grand Ballroom A

Session Abstract

PBS, along with other broadcasters, is investigating the use of terrestrial fibre based Wide Area Network (WAN) IP network technologies, such as Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), to replace and/or augment legacy one-way satellite broadcast networks that are ubiquitous today. This next generation technology is of interest since it provides many potential performance benefits over satellite but it also allows broadcasters to leverage the rapidly dropping costs for such networks as well as the order-of-magnitude higher investment that is being made in IT and cloud computing technologies and applications.

This session will summarize the use of this technology from a broadcaster perspective including approaches being taken to seamlessly migrate from existing broadcast contribution and distribution systems. This will include a discussion and demonstration of the location specific performance acceptance testing needed for broadcasters to confirm the ability of an IP network service provider to deliver the Class of Service (COS) traffic engineering needed to deliver broadcast quality Quality of Experience (QOE) for both real-time and non-real-time content delivery. Also included will be a description of the use of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) , Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), Digital Asset Management (DAM) and CyberSecurity technologies to future proof such networks.
