The importance of monitoring
networks in live sports
With Nicolas Boulay,
Co-President,

The reputational

There have been several important
changes in recent years that have
raised the criticality
of
effective
monitoring and managing of these

which is why sports broadcasting
is the crucible in which all other

Diversity and multiple redundancy
paths are taken as granted, with the
infrastructures established to handle
the transmission of the major, weeklong
events that occur every few
years reaching impressive sizes and
scales. Cable paths are often taken in
two directions, east and west; in case
of seismic activity disrupting a signal,
satellite redundancy is introduced;
and the system is stress-tested to
ensure that nothing can take it down.
This must occur over a long period
of time. A major tournament can take
four weeks to play out, but the testing
and establishment of the network at
least doubles that. And for sporting

This can even involve round-trips

This last point is crucial. If there
is anything the last two years have

unwise to think that change is about

any NMS chosen to safeguard the
delivery of high-quality, low-latency
sports content on a worldwide basis
must be as flexible as it is scalable to
ensure proper futureproofing.
