Intelsat joins forces with Dejero to launch IronRoute

What do you get when you blend broadband, cellular (3G/4G/5G) and satellite connectivity to deliver media from point to point or distribute broadcast-quality content to multiple locations across the globe?

You’ll get an iron-clad, robust, reliable network connectivity — and at a highly cost-efficient price.

Last month, at 2019 NAB Show, Dejero joined forces with Intelsat to launch IronRoute, a blended connectivity cloud-based content distribution solution for the media industry.

Dejero, by combining its Smart Blending Technology with Intelsat’s global network, created a virtual ‘network of networks’ solution that simplifies the simultaneous distribution of content to multiple locations anywhere in the world, whether it be to network affiliates, station groups, or to other broadcasters and media organisations.

Live and file-based content can be quickly and easily distributed point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and multipoint-to-multipoint with a simple drag and drop interface in a web browser.

Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide Emmy Award-winning video transport and Internet connectivity, maintains that IronRoute for media combines link diversity, service quality and centralised management benefits of a software-defined blended network with the flexibility and scalability benefits of cloud distribution.

Indeed, IronRoute is deemed to offer broadcasters, programmers, media organisations and other content providers highly flexible, cost-effective and scalable cloud-based content distribution while solving the challenge of first- and last-mile connectivity to and from the cloud.

“Content providers are increasingly using the cloud for global distribution, but reliable first- and last-mile connectivity to the cloud has been a challenge,” said Todd Schneider, CTO, Dejero.

“With the ability to automatically blend broadband, cellular and satellite connectivity to move content to and from the cloud, IronRoute for mediaprovides organisations with the reliable connectivity they need while simplifying the simultaneous distribution of their content around the globe with an easy-to-use portal for managing connectivity devices and content.”

Bill O’Hara, general manager, Media, Intelsat, assured APB in an interview at the show: “The three-in-one IronRoute works seamlessly and this is very important to all our customers.”

He also said: “Media customers today have a wide array of connectivity requirements. Very rarely does one type of connectivity fit all customer applications, either due to cost, reliability, or reach.

“IronRoute for media, integrated with Intelsat’s global satellite connectivity, provides the dynamic flexibility to manage cost and reliability in accordance with customer requirements by utilising the right blend of connectivity at the right moment.

“We strongly believe that by integrating Intelsat’s global satellite connectivity into IronRoute for media, we will together provide a globalised and differentiated solution.”

The IronRoute mediasolution was demonstrated at the Intelsat booth in the South Hall as well as at the Dejero booth in the Central Hall of the LVCC.
