Network transport technology provider Net Insight has announced that ViewSat has selected its Nimbra platform to offer its clients additional services.

ViewSat, which is headquartered in the U.K., is a global provider of broadcast and transmission services for bringing television and radio channels into the Middle East, North Africa, Asia, Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa.

"Net Insight's solution provides expansion capabilities and allows us to offer our clients additional services in a very short lead time and with enhanced quality and protection", explained Awaes Jaswal, chief executive of ViewSat, in a statement. "We have plans for further growth in 2013 and beyond."

Net Insight noted that the agreement is one of a number of deals in recent months, including an expansion order from the U.S. company The Switch TV in April, and a deal with the UK company Arqiva in March.
