Fox Sports Upgrades Infrastructure to Support HDTV Across Australia
FOX SPORTS broadcasts an average of 23 hours of LIVE sport per day into 2.3 million homes around Australia with over seven million potential viewers. Their challenge is to deploy a network infrastructure that enables FOX SPORTS to transmit multiple HD video, voice and data channels from sporting venues across Australia. They chose Juniper Networks to overcome this challenge. They have implemented Juniper Networks EX4200 Ethernet Switch and MX240 Universal Edge Router. The results of implementing Juniper Networks were delivered high-quality service and a means for FOX SPORTS to provide additional value-added services to its subscriber base. The new infrastructure has enabled FOX SPORTS to increase program quality and deliver greater HD content in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
