RTÉ Chooses Tiscali's IP Transit Service For It's Online Service

Tiscali International Network (TINet), a carrier dedicated exclusively to wholesale IP-MPLS, has announced that the Irish broadcaster RTÉ (Radio Telefis Éireann) has chosen its IP Transit service to deliver audio and visual streaming for RTÉ's online service.
RTÉ's selection of TINet is evidence of a growing trend amongst broadcasters and content owners to expand their presence online by delivering more programmes over the Internet. TINet will be the IP transit supplier to the public service broadcaster, whose cross-media service includes two national TV channels, four radio stations and a comprehensive website with news, entertainment and sports programmes.
TINet, who has the second largest IP network in Europe, provides reliable connectivity with proactive management of SLAs and protection from DOS attacks to minimise downtime. RTÈ will use TINet's service to deliver web and multimedia content from its website, such as news updates, media alerts and live streaming feeds.
Marcus O'Doherty, Technology Development Manager of RTÉ said: "Our audiences have come to expect high quality programming on TV and radio, and visit our website expecting the same level of excellence. TINet demonstrated that it was able to supply RTÉ a reliable high capacity network, backed up with great technical support. We have very high standards for our viewers' user experience and are delighted to be working with the TINet team who understand our business needs."
Paolo Susnik, Chief Executive Officer at TINet added: "TINet's dedicated focus on wholesale IP and MPLS has meant that we are in a position to provide a faster and more customer focused solution than our competitors. Our partnership with RTÉ guarantees management of their network and performance stability for high volume traffic - essential for a broadcaster like RTÉ where fast, safe surfing is essential to add value to its audiences."
