Leading telecommunications and technology company, Telstra, announces advancements and partnerships to its Telstra Global Media Network (GMN) through a cloud gateway solution and media data services, as well as an extension of its GMN Partner Alliance with two new partners, PSSI and Intelsat.
Originally set to be announced at NAB 2020 and rolling out in April 2020, the new cloud gateway solution, known as GMN MediaNet, expands on the Telstra GMN’s international fibre, satellite and partner media networks by providing a gateway from “on-net” media rights holders to “off-net” media buyers, using cloud infrastructure.
Telstra is also adding data-based capability, known as GMN Media Data, using bi-directional and multi-point Ethernet services with the ability to create data channels that allow a point-to-point data link between a media company HQ and a remote event or location. Improving operations and workflows for contribution customers to bundle components which reduces their operational costs.
The Telstra Global Media Network is a purpose-built video contribution and distribution network integrating underlying media fibre networks, satellite capabilities, and partnerships, connecting 2500+ OnNet endpoints, including 1000+ customer sites and more than1500 venues and stadiums. The addition of a new secure cloud gateway to and from the network will allow high-quality video transport to and from markets with little to no infrastructure, as well as incident prone areas.
