Network Services



There are numerous advantages to becoming a DISN Video Services subscriber. We are a service-oriented organization that offers a broad range of capabilities, and supports varying types of configurations with a service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

1. Speed Matching
Although DISN is standards-based, the Hubs allow disparate equipment and speed/rate matching (variable connection speeds). Any approved infrastructure can be connected to the Hub.

Speed/Rate Matching

2. Global Connectivity
The DISN Video Services Network is composed of six strategically located regional Hubs. That global coverage keeps the calls less costly. All Hub to Hub video traffic is transported on Government provided T1 Circuits. DISN Video Services provides access to critical Federal Departments and Agencies, and is focused on being the preferred provider of VTC to the DoD.
