RAI and AFIBER rollout IBC network

In 2018, RAI and AFIBER delivered optical connectivity to well known exhibitors of the International Broadcasting Convention. From today, 1-10Gbps low-latency optical network services are available for every exhibitor at the IBC 2019 event.

From September 13-17th 2019 the world’s most influential media, entertainment & technology show is present at RAI Amsterdam. IBC hosts 50,000 square meters of exhibition space, 1,700 exhibitors and over 55,000 attendees made up of innovators, decision makers and industry leaders. More event information on ibc.org


To showcase the latest technology in real-time, high-bandwidth secure connectivity between exhibitors’ stand, applications, data center and infrastructure is required to fulfill latency and bandwidth requirements of these AV cloud applications.



Together with RAI Amsterdam, AFIBER has developed 1-10Gbps+ private and low latency services for the upcoming IBC event that perfectly meets those requirements. Exhibitors can now demonstrate cloud-based media applications and fly-by-wire live broadcast solutions through our high bandwidth network.
