Digital content within the media and entertainment (M&E) industry has grown exponentially over the past several years. As production standards shift from High Definition to Ultra High Definition, the amount of data generated is too large and too expensive for traditional storage and transfer infrastructure to handle.
A media business’ success hinges on finding a cost-effective means of managing the growth of its content and transferring it for production, broadcast, on-demand or streaming. High-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet capabilities are making it possible to move and retrieve huge amounts of video data instantly and inexpensively. As a result, M&E companies like digital content creation facilities and post-production houses are moving their activities to the cloud via physical networking architectures that can support the volume of the digital work they create. NJFX’s Meet-Me-Room (MMR) offers an effective solution to meet this need.
NJFX: Meeting the M&E Industry’s Distribution Needs
Our International Cable Landing Station MMR offers a streamlined, cost-effective and secure means for organizations to move their content from raw material to the post-production phase. Our customers benefit from a high level of connectivity to leading service providers and the company’s industry-leading Wavelength, Ethernet, MPLS, DIA and Cloud services. As a result, M&E networks that establish a Point of Presence (PoP) within our MMR are able to connect physically, in one place, with global post-production, storage, theater, aggregator, cable/MSO, satellite, and delivery services. In this way, NJFX contributes to increasing the operational efficiency of our M&E clients.
Our MMR service is both a cost-effective and secure solution for the media industry as a whole. By connecting directly to leading Internet Exchanges, growth in demand for content/data can be simply addressed by segmenting networks as opposed to adding physical storage devices. For example, a production company that has taken a 10 gigabit port within the Internet Exchange can, at zero cost, segment its distribution networks via virtual LAN to mitigate the time it takes to upload large files. Networking segmentation also enhances the organization’s security by taking its data streams off the public Internet.
By becoming tenants of our MMR, organizations gain access to a physical network architecture that is easy to use, secure and less expensive than non-cloud-based storage and data transfer infrastructure. NJFX is ideal for content providers who recognize the importance of joining a digital data system that can easily adapt to their constantly evolving needs.
