Belgian operator Belgacom has selected Edgeware's Distributed Video Delivery Network (D-VDN) system for its TV Partout/TV Overal multiscreen and IPTV service.
The solution plays a role in delivering scalability for both live TV and advanced network personal video recorder (nPVR) services.
Deployed last summer alongside its existing nPVR system based on Edgeware’s IPTV technology, Belgacom has already seen extensive results. Belgacom TV boasts a subscriber base of 1.4 million, and the TV Partout app has growing popularity among IPTV customers.
Edgeware’s solution gives Belgacom’s subscribers access to 55 channels at home or on the go, supporting a range of devices including connected TVs, PCs/Macs, iOS and Android devices.
In addition, customers can use the TV Partout app to access the full Belgacom TV Electronic Program Guide (EPG) and schedule recordings on their nPVR service.
“Edgeware allowed us to rapidly scale, adding streaming licences and successfully delivering live events with an uptake of 5-6 times the normal peak. In addition, the way the engineering team quickly solved technical issues for live services has further strengthened our confidence in Edgeware” a spokesperson for Belgacom said.
