Media & Entertainment

Media, broadcast, and entertainment businesses are regularly at the forefront of technology advances. IT networking enables this innovation and is critical to both create and deliver content to media-hungry customers. Whether it’s a streaming drama, bringing superheroes to the big screen, a live online sports event, or creating the latest action game, content creators and distributors depend on their infrastructure networks to always be secure and available.

Broadcast, distribution, and remote production

Broadcasters’ transport networks are designed to meet exacting requirements, but bandwidth demands are growing rapidly. Broadcasters need an enterprise WAN that delivers scalable capacity and uncompromising reliability.

The Juniper MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms power some of the largest broadcaster WANs in the world. While SMPTE ST 2022-7 seamless protection allows for duplicate broadcast streams across your WAN, guaranteeing path diversity isn’t easy. MX Series routers combined with the Juniper Paragon Pathfinder path computation engine guarantee that your broadcast streams take unique paths across your WAN, no matter the size.
