Digicable, Asia’s first 500-channel digital service provider, is to upgrade to the Conax Contego Plus conditional access solution.

The pan-Indian MSO already has one million digitized subscribers, but has recently contracted Conax to secure a further 600,000 secure client devices to meet future growth.

“We are very pleased with the personal level of 24/7 operational service and integrity provided by Conax and are highly confident that Contego Plus will play a strong role in positioning Digicable into the future,” said Asif Khan, CTO, Digicable. “Conax offers an excellent security record, flexible solutions and provides a forward-thinking policy towards partners, allowing us to select from a wide range of Conax security-certified devices and vendors that best suit our operational needs.”

The new solution, backed support services from Conax, will help position and secure the company’s roadmap. Conax Contego includes subscription, pairing, fingerprinting, messaging, DRM control and pay-per-view, video-on-demand and an option for centralized CAS.
