Anylive® Fibre Network

Tap into the UK’s fastest growing international media fibre network.

Since 2010, we’ve provided a resilient fibre network between the UK’s largest venues, sporting stadiums and entertainment venues, broadcasters, network operators, channel aggregators and major switching centres.

Our Anylive® fibre network, with over 150 venues now ‘on-net’, is supported by two dedicated network operations centres (NOCs), giving you a direct link to national and international audiences.

Our NOCs provide full network support, and 24/7 proactive service monitoring and management.

End-to-end service

You can trust NEP Connect (formerly known as SIS LIVE), to send your content to audiences around the world. We provide multiple standard inputs and outputs including ASI, SD SDI, HD SDI, J2k and full encoding and decoding services.

Our robust service is designed with 1+1 connectivity and equipment.

Location, location, location

As well as Premier League football, rugby grounds and other sports venues, you’ll find our fibre network in many other sites across the UK.

Major broadcasters including the BBC, ITV and Sky Sports rely on our fibre network to deliver award-winning content from site to viewer with speed and resilience.

Multi-technology resilience

If you require extra peace of mind, some of our venues are equipped with microwave links. This diversity, along with our back-up satellite services, leaves you free to focus on the content your audience is waiting for.

NEP Connect’s comprehensive fibre and satellite infrastructure forms a cohesive and robust connectivity portfolio which includes the largest mobile hybrid satellite and fibre vehicle fleet in Europe, remote production and gateway services. Through any combination of these facilities, we are able to offer you the best, most reliable and cost-effective service
