Moving Full-Time Channel Distribution from Satellite to Terrestrial IP Networks Without Losing Sleep: An Introduction to LTN’s Dynamic Multi-Carrier Routing Architecture

The one-to-many model of delivery through traditional broadcast, cable and direct-to-home satellite channels has become inadequate. Viewers are accessing content through a variety of emerging distribution channels. To optimize monetization, providers are pursing diverse geographies, devices, languages and cultures, each requiring varying levels of customization.

To meet the changing demands, content companies are seeking alternative methods of delivery to distribution outlets. The flexibility and ubiquity of IP-based terrestrial transmission has made it the most attractive and obvious alternative, given the flexibility to route traffic from any location to any destination without the necessity of creating a physical end-to-end path. However, basic  architectural limitations prevent from delivering content quickly and reliably.

LTN has overcome these challenges creating reliable, cost-effective delivery through the application of unique overlay technology and the development of a professional network of data centers using proprietary routing protocols. Providing a fully managed service, discover how LTN delivers live content for some of the biggest media companies in the world with equal or better reliability than traditional satellite or fiber paths, using unique, patented technology and a powerful data network.
