Grass Valley and Cisco extend alliance for IP

by Digital Studio Middle East Staff on Sep 13, 2016

Grass Valley and Cisco have broadened their existing relationship to offer customers integrated broadcast network solutions that include sales and service of GV Node, GV Convergent and IPG-3901 along with Cisco’s Nexus 9000 series IP switches.

Broadcasters, production companies and media service providers will benefit from the combined power and resources of two companies to realise the full potential of IP-based networks.

Under the alliance, Grass Valley will sell and support the entire solution that leverages best-of-breed components. Customers who have been exploring COTS IP switch solutions now have an option that reduces risk and improves integration because of the single-supplier approach.

In addition to this IP switch agreement, the two companies are collaborating on joint solutions spanning security, virtualised x86 computation and OTT platforms.

For the security solution, Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) helps to lock down the management plane into the GV Node infrastructure with granular role-based access control. Belden’s Tripwire complements the Cisco and Grass Valley security capabilities to provide a multi-layered approach to protect both the infrastructure and content from malicious attacks. Security integration across Tripwire and Cisco solutions provide real-time vulnerability monitoring and detection to increase visibility, reduce complexity and speed the time to detect and mitigate threats.

“With extensive experience in deploying large broadcast network solutions over the past 55 years, Grass Valley has become a trusted partner for companies requiring the most robust, efficient and interoperable solutions on the market,” said Neerav Shah, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley. “Now, combined with Cisco’s market leadership in COTS switching, virtualised computation, OTT and security, we are bringing even more value to our customers.”
