Verizon, NASA Partner to Offer Live Multiple Video Feeds of Solar Eclipse

NASA used a Verizon-backed networking solution to offer a live broadcast of the total solar eclipse that swept across the nation, as well as Mexico and Canada, on Monday.

The U.S. space agency worked with Verizon Business to lay down the infrastructure for Leidos’s 1GB E-Line service from the Great Lakes Science Center to the John Glenn Space Center, both in Cleveland, Ohio, enabling the broadcast of multiple video feeds across the country, including telescope views and broadcast commentary, Verizon said.

Michael Adams, associate vice president for federal civilian services at Verizon, said the collaboration showed the company’s capability to work on a tight deadline to allow NASA to broadcast the eclipse to everyone interested in being part of the rare event.

Verizon has been the government’s frequent collaborator. In January, Adams, a 4×24 member, revealed that the company is working to develop technologies that will support the government’s evolving needs, including cybersecurity and 5G and futureG use.

Among the initiatives led by the communications provider is one focused on ensuring first responders are connected 24/7. Its Verizon Frontline Innovation Program aims to identify, test and develop technologies in four areas: preparation, response, recovery and mitigation, allowing for prompt response.
