Comcast Business powers broadcast events

Comcast Business has partnered with NBCUniversal to manage critical components of the broadcast and digital transport for all its broadcasts, including two of television´s biggest events, Super Bowl LII and the 2018 Winter Olympics, the company said.

NBCUniversal´s broadcast facilities across the country are now directly connected to Comcast Business´ next generation, advanced network, enabling the broadcast of the company´s 24×7 content.

Comcast Business has also been strategically integrated into 29 NBC and Telemundo-owned and operated stations, seamlessly integrating broadcast and digital linear distribution, while supporting the connectivity required to uplink the NBC network to more than 200 affiliate stations across the country. Comcast Business´ robust network provides NBCUniversal with a fully diverse, end-to-end service to ensure better reliability and control over the delivery process.

NBCUniversal leverages Comcast Business´ advanced Metro Ethernet Services — specifically a secure 10 Gigabit Diverse Wave infrastructure and 1G Diverse Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EvPL) connection. Comcast Business´ Ethernet & Wave solutions deliver a high-performance, secure connection between sites that serves as a modern alternative to traditional TDM private lines, and older packet technologies like Frame Relay. EvPL is ideal for mission-critical, sensitive data applications as it allows users to bypass the public Internet and securely transmit traffic over a private connection, backed by a highly available, defined SLA.

Comcast Business offers Ethernet, Internet, Wi-Fi, Voice and TV solutions to help organizations of all sizes transform their business.
