GlobeCast deploys terrestrial video network for TF1

GlobeCast has completed the deployment of a new terrestrial video network for broadcasters TF1 and LCI in France. The five-year contract covers the network’s buildout and operation. To win this deal, GlobeCast proposed a solution including a massive Ethernet MAN network, used for the first time on such a scale, to respond to the urgent "on the spot" needs of TF1.

The architecture of this network allows TF1 to establish point-to-point switched links with all 13 of its regional bureaus throughout France. The network will grow with TF1’s activity as the broadcaster adds new sites.
