Can DTM tech upstage ATM?
Scoff now, but you'll remember next time your streaming video looks like it's being delivered over your old Atari.
Net Insight just released what it calls an improvement on ATM and SONET technologies with its Dynamic synchronous Transfer Mode technology.
The product "guarantees bandwidth and dynamically reallocates capacity on demand for live and nonlive media," the company reports. DTM, already available on the European market, is designed to bypass satellite links and legacy networks, such as ATM. Likewise, it's intended to allow media companies to converge real-time studio-quality video, audio, HDTV or IP directly over DWDM and fiber networks on the same platform.
"We are focusing on providing our partners with real-time broadband solutions that will enable new venues like virtual studios and media production and delivery networks," VP of Global Marketing John Kostak says in a statement.
DTM networking products include optical switches and network service software for operators and ASICs for OEMs, the company reports.
Stockholm-based Net Insight develops and markets network switches for fiber-optic broadband networks.
