Editor ©RapidTVNews | 22-02-2012

Sunrise Communications, the largest private telecom provider in Switzerland, has selected Entone as its set-top box (STB) partner for the deployment of advanced IPTV services.
Founded in 1997, and boasting almost 3 million subscribers, Sunrise is a provider of premium residential services that include fibre-based broadband Internet, mobile solutions, advanced IP services and wireline telephony.

The company attributes its market position mainly to what it calls its “dedication to customer satisfaction and innovative vision.” The investment in the Amulet STBs from the hybrid TV and connected home solutions provider is part of this strategy, designed to enable Sunrise to take advantage of the additional revenue stream opportunities while providing our subscribers added benefits and viewing flexibility.
Explained Thomas Leber, Senior Manager, Wireline at Sunrise: “To position us for growth, we need reliable, quality products that can enable us to continue to deliver differentiating services…Entone’s strong commitment to product support was a key factor in our decision to deploy the Amulet. Amulet also easily integrates with our eco-system partners, allowing us to rapidly deploy IPTV services across our expanding footprint.”
Added Bart Vanderostyne, Director of EMEA Sales and Operations at Entone: “Entone’s focus has always been to provide a reliable and future-proof platform for delivering integrated IPTV services that enhances the user experience…Opportunities in the TV market are rapidly changing with over-the-top content and new IP-based applications. We are pleased to be working with a visionary operator such as Sunrise to meet those market realities as they rollout innovative IPTV services.”
Advanced logistic services are being provided by Entone’s local partner Adrenio, to further help Sunrise accelerate their deployment of IPTV services.
