NextRadioTV Deploys Extensive MediorNet Routing Solution From Riedel Communications

The 204-node MediorNet system has been installed in the new NextRadioTV facilities on the Paris campus of the Altice Group, which acquired NextRadioTV in 2016, to support signal distribution, routing, and processing over a single decentralized real-time network.

“Our move to the Altice campus gave us a tremendous opportunity to build technical facilities from scratch and to establish a common infrastructure for all our TV and radio channels,” said Antoine Robelin, Technical Director at NextRadioTV. “The scalable, state-of-the-art technology integrated into these new facilities gives us added agility in producing and broadcasting events from across our remarkable portfolio of 24/7 news, documentaries, and live sports. In addition to supporting flexible day-to-day operations, our Riedel gear gives us the ability to take advantage of mature and reliable network technologies that will eventually support a smooth transition toward IP.”

The MediorNet installation at NextRadioTV includes 18 MetroN core fiber routers and 186 MicroN high-density media distribution network devices distributed across the campus. The MediorNet backbone leverages a new cabling infrastructure, including a wealth of previously installed dark fibers, to address factors including long distances between production studios/control rooms/technical rooms and the need to be able to scale up quickly and easily to new requirements. MediorNet’s decentralized concept was also very valuable in managing a smooth and incremental move from the former building to the new one. Dark fibers in both buildings were used to create the real-time network, which further facilitated the migration process. The flexibility of the Riedel equipment even enabled NextRadioTV to design and implement new galleries while the new installation was underway.

“We are really proud to see our MediorNet technology at the heart of this brand-new broadcast technology showcase in Paris,” said Franck Berger, Riedel Communications General Manager, France and Africa. “With MediorNet, NextRadioTV is equipped to embrace innovations such as decentralized routing while taking a thoughtful and gradual approach toward IP-based networks and workflows. The Altice campus installation demonstrates how an investment in Riedel equipment can yield valuable results immediately and as a broadcast organization evolves.”
