Swiss Internet service provider Netstream has selected Swedish technology company Edgeware to offer advanced IPTV services, including catch-up TV, pause live TV, network PVR and video-on-demand, to leading operators in Switzerland.
The services will be based on Edgeware's Distributed Video Delivery Network (D-VDN) framework, a scalable platform for video delivery. Its built-in capability to record live TV channels allows operators to deliver advanced video and TV on-demand services from a single platform.
"Netstream's innovative solution gives operators the benefits of a complete wholesale IPTV package, combined with the high quality of experience and scalability enabled by implementing Edgeware's Distributed Video Delivery Network strategy," said Duncan Potter, chief marketing officer and vice president of operations at Edgeware.
Reto Kasser, chief technology officer at Netstream, added: "Edgeware's Distributed Video Delivery Network solution enables us to offer superior scalability by hosting content in our own network while allowing our customers to deploy additional caching in their networks which allows them to scale the service without the need for additional network bandwidth capacity."
