Lumen to Deploy SCORPION for Next-Generation Contribution Network

Evertz (TSE:ET), the global leader in media and entertainment technology solutions, is proud to announce that Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN) will utilize Evertz’ SCORPION Smart Media Processing Platform for its next-generation contribution network that connects to major stadiums in the U.S. for live sports.

Lumen is a global provider of networking, Content Delivery Networks (CDN), edge cloud, security, and collaboration services. Through Lumen Vyvx® Broadcast Solutions, the company provides live events and on-demand video with end-to-end digital transmission. Lumen invested in the SCORPION platform to upgrade its Vyvx offering by enhancing its ability to support customers with multiple UHD and 1080p HDR video signals.

“The SCORPION ecosystem has the extensive range of media edge processing, networking integration, processing density and modularity that we need at all interfaces to allow us to efficiently deploy and operate premium contribution services for our customers,” says David Robison, Principal Architect at Lumen. “Vyvx customers will benefit from lower latency, expanded interface options, and increased service throughput – all within a reduced space and power footprint.”

Evertz’ SCORPION is a flexible and versatile platform that can adapt to the evolving needs of Lumen’s customers. It is a modular-based platform that combines format-agnostic processing, conversion, and routing functions with support for any type of network transport (including dark fiber and managed IP networks). The SCORPION MIO-BLADE, an FPGA-based compute module, offers licensable apps for a broad range of media processing, conversion, and codecs (e.g. JPEG XS) to provide flexibility and agility at the network edge. This enables Lumen to seamlessly adapt to their customers’ requirements now and in the future.

For network transport, the pluggable I/O provides unmatched flexibility at both the network and application layer. The SCORPION-SX18 provides support for dark fiber over CWDM, standards-based IP networking (including SMPTE ST 2110 and JPEG XS) using 10/25/40/100GbE interfaces. With the SCORPION MIO-XPS, streaming H.264/HEVC encoder/decoder, Lumen customers can optionally transport video/audio/data streams over the public Internet using SRT, RIST or Zixi.

The SCOPRION solution is managed by Evertz’ award-winning VistaLINK® PRO and IRM orchestration and network management software tools. IRM provides the orchestration, control, and scheduling of the edge resources and network connectivity of the SCOPRION platform. VistaLINK® PRO monitors and provides real-time reporting and analysis on the health of the solution.

“It is an honor that Lumen selected Evertz’ next-generation network edge platform,” adds Andrew Osmond, Business Development Director of Media Transport with Evertz. “We look forward to working with their team to provide the most adaptable SCORPION platform solutions in this rapidly evolving marketplace.”
