SIS LIVE taps Vodafone UK for fiber connectivity to transmit live TV

FIFA Brazil
SIS LIVE has tied up with Vodafone UK to provide fiber connectivity to transmit HD live TV streaming of sporting matches from grounds to broadcasters.

SIS LIVE provides media content, supplying live coverage of sporting events to UK and international TV broadcasters and distributors.

Vodafone UK has delivered a IP fiber and transmission network to enable content to be transmitted live from the pitch side back to SIS LIVE’s broadcast hubs in MediaCityUK and Milton Keynes.

To ensure resilient service delivery, Vodafone has combined its robust fibre network with microwave links at the main rugby stadia offering unparalleled resilience. In addition, SIS LIVE will be deploying at least one satellite truck to every venue.

“We are the only UK communications provider to have connected all current premiership grounds and 13 rugby venues around the country in this way,” said Dave Langhorn, head of Large Business for Vodafone UK.
