LTN Global Communications’ Resilient Network Completes Seven Years of Commercial Operation with Zero Downtime

Savage, MD, May 16, 2016 – LTN Global Communications, Inc. (“LTN”), a global leader in fully-managed broadcast quality IP video transport solutions, is pleased to announce that its core network has recently completed seven years of commercial operation with zero downtime. This extraordinary achievement is a result of LTN’s proprietary and patented technology, resilient network architecture, and dedicated 24/7 support for customers.

LTN’s fully-managed video distribution service guarantees both high reliability and low delay for a broadcast-quality live video flow anywhere in the world. This managed service is delivered over a global multicast backbone network with LTN’s Super Nodes connected via multiple redundant Tier 1 carriers. LTN’s backbone management technology has hundreds of granted patent claims that allow LTN to create an unmatched managed IP network, engineered specifically to eliminate service disruptions, and provide the resiliency and timeliness required for flawless live or real-time video delivery. This uniquely resilient architecture provides LTN with the ability to tightly monitor and control the path of video flows on the network, select optimal paths for the flows, immediately react to any changes, and instantly address problems in the network.

“LTN’s resilient backbone architecture and dynamic rerouting algorithms allow us to offer a high-availability service at all times, even when one or more of the underlying physical network carriers may be suffering performance or availability issues. Our customers have an expectation of high reliability and low latency from LTN, and we pride ourselves on continuing to meet that expectation, even as we have grown our network by 10x over the last three years to accommodate our customers’ traffic,” said Malik Khan, Executive Chairman, LTN Global Communications, Inc.

“LTN has allowed us to rapidly distribute a number of full-time networks reliably while controlling our operating cost and allowing increased connectivity not only between Sinclair locales but our media partners as well,” said Delbert Parks III, Senior Vice President, Chief Technology Officer, Sinclair Broadcasting.

LTN’s 24/7 Network Operations Center (NOC) monitors each customer flow uniquely, and proactively manages events and alarms on customers’ behalf to ensure a flawless service delivery. As a result, the LTN Network provides an unparalleled quality of service, and can overcome failures that render other networks unusable.

“LTN’s TOC consists of a team of well-trained and highly skilled engineers that understand LTN’s backbone network. We have full confidence in the reliability of LTN’s Network for distribution of our full-time channels,” said Jeff Lilly, Chief Information Officer, Lilly Broadcasting.
