BBC News has implemented a five-city 'portable bandwidth' internet protocol (IP) video network, which will allow it to transfer bandwidth to wherever it is needed.
The broadcaster is using the MPLS/IP system from Genesis Networks as the backbone connectivity from four of its overseas bureaux in Washington, New York, Brussels and Paris. It will use the network to bring news material back to the UK.
Using the proprietary web-based online booking and scheduling technology, BBC News will be able to adjust bandwidth to most efficiently bring individual video feeds to its Television Centre in London.
Peter Mayne, executive editor for newsgathering at BBC News, said in a statement: "With two 24-hour news channels - one international, one serving the UK - and a wide range of news programmes on four domestic BBC TV networks, BBC News needs reliable, flexible and cost-effective connectivity to bring in live news coverage from our 40 news bureaux around the world, or from wherever the news is breaking.
"The 'flexible bandwidth' of the MPLS/IP system allows our staff to manage our connectivity according to the news requirements of the moment in a way that is more operationally efficient than was previously possible."
