Nevion to present range and facility surveillance and managed video services solutions at ISR Summit
Adam Mendelson to present on the modernization and fusion of ISR networks
Washington, DC, November 8, 2011 – Nevion, a leading provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities worldwide, will be demonstrating its comprehensive intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance solutions for government and military organizations at the ISR Summit on November 14-16 at the Hilton Arlington Hotel in Washington, DC. In addition, Nevion’s director of government business, Adam Mendelson, will present on ‘The Modernization and Fusion of ISR Networks’ at 11.35am on Wednesday November 16.
Mendelson’s presentation will examine how to select the right sensors for the right exploitation systems in a unified command and control environment. It will also explore how a flexible ISR framework can allow a common C2 Infrastructure to provision any sensor for any number of exploitation systems, and how to migrate from isolated stovepipe mission systems to a common mission system with the ability to create mission-specific enclaves on demand.
Nevion will demonstrate its comprehensive ISR solutions as well as its new VideoIPath solution for video exploitation of full motion video (FMV) and large volume streaming data (LVSD). Nevion’s advanced range and facility modernization, surveillance and mission video systems provide real-time transport of video, data and telemetry over any network infrastructure—IP, fiber overlay or SONET/SDH—with VideoIPath for managing and provisioning video services.
VideoIPath for IP networks provides IP video transport with comprehensive, end-to-end control, monitoring and management. It features comprehensive managed video services for complete provisioning, connection management, bandwidth optimization, analytics and network inventory. It greatly reduces the cost structure by bringing video services into the IP environment, where scalability is dramatically increasing and port costs are decreasing.
VideoIPath for IP now includes the VS902, a powerful new universal IP video transport platform that accepts any SDI or ASI input and provides both uncompressed encapsulation to IP and a choice of JPEG 2000 or H.264 compression. It offers transport protected by Streaming Intelligent Packet Switching (SIPS), a technology developed by Nevion as a more advanced transport protection method that provides perfect protection switching in addition to packet loss protection. VideoIPath also supports forward error correction (FEC), and provides automatic calculation of the FEC settings needed to meet a desired level of service.
VideoIPath is administered from a Web-based console for comprehensive managed video services. It simplifies the complexity of video-over-IP services by adding a network abstraction layer, allowing users to provision and monitor services without having to consider detailed configuration settings in each network element. By auto-detecting available video resources, VideoIPath can present appropriate video end-points and service profiles to users, enabling them to schedule and initiate connections in an intuitive option-selection process. VideoIPath manages bandwidth by allocating the necessary resources without overbooking.
VideoIPath is also available for optical networks, providing a completely managed video services system for fiber-based networks. The fully integrated system combines advanced transport hardware for contribution-quality video transport with comprehensive end-to-end control, monitoring and management.
VideoIPath’s optical networking—driven by Nevion Flashlink and Sublime optical components—provides a highly cost-efficient solution for intra- and inter-facility signal distribution and management that assures quality, protection and efficiency. It integrates leading hardware components with sophisticated management capabilities for a new level of provisioning and resource management that dramatically streamlines and simplifies operations.
A critical component of VideoIPath optical networking is the new Flashlink ADP-3G module that can add, drop or pass signals on each layer, ensuring fast and safe signal switching for all nodes in the network.
Integrating existing infrastructures with next-generation technologies, Nevion solutions feature NEBS Level 3 certified products for operation in harsh environments, space-saving modules for lower operating costs, and comprehensive management and control, including remote monitoring. Unlike other equipment providers, Nevion offers integrated network interfaces. HD to SONET, 3G to fiber, and HD or SD to IP each require only one module, saving space, power and resources.
