Our products and services were designed to address the pain points experienced by media production companies, and offer secure, reliable products and flexible pricing. Our customer service and engineering teams are skilled and offer immediate, real-time assistance when needed.
At the end of the day, the speed at which productions get done is limited by how long it takes to get your critical content from Point A to Point B.

From Day 1, Sohonet has been the leading networking provider for the media and entertainment industries. At first, our mission was born out of the frustrations of Soho based media companies at the time, Sohonet created a network that would allow secure and high-speed transfer of critical content in a manner that had not been possible before.
Since then, our network has expanded globally and we are able to offer many additional services using the infrastructure and expertise we have developed, including network management, extranet, diversity and domain management.
The Sohonet Media Network (SMN) is the Media & Entertainment industry’s largest private network, allowing Sohonet’s 400+ customers to collaborate on feature film and TV productions with speed, security and delivery assurance.
Addressing the needs of a diverse and distributed global media community means providing various ways to connect to SMN.
Sohonet can provide bespoke network solutions for your LAN and WAN. Our range of services includes advice, design and consultancy, and the option of a completely managed network. We work with a range of products from industry leading vendors such as Brocade, Juniper, HP, and MRV to make sure we always use the most appropriate technology.
To better meet the Media & Entertainment industry’s need for transfer and storage of large files, we first built the Sohonet Media Network as a secure high-performance alternative to standard network infrastructure. However, we realized that our customers challenges don’t end with network connectivity — you need end-user tools that can fully utilize the gains and maximum potential of your infrastructure.
That’s why we built our suite of Connected Cloud Services. Each of our cloud platform services provides a key building block to a larger workspace solution, designed to meet the needs and workflows of the M&E industry.
It’s hard enough to manage the core technical demands of production and post-production. Though valid, adding worries about security onto the pile doesn’t make anything easier.

We at Sohonet are seasoned veterans of Media & Entertainment cybersecurity. We live for the joy of managing firewalls, VPNs, and complicated patch updates — so you don’t have to. Let us at least take this one off your plate, so you can focus on your business’ bottom line.
