It goes without saying that we are very proud to accept this award and recognition for our Velocix CDN solution – which is a central element of the new TV experience consumers are looking for…
After remaining relatively unchanged for several decades, the TV experience is becoming more personalized, interactive and available on new screens. Look closer, however, and one realizes that the changes are happening around the TV, not changing TV itself. TV remains central to the experience consumers crave. This is significant for PayTV providers because they have the highest-valued content and the footprint to deliver it. By leveraging the new technologies now available to deliver advanced video services, PayTV providers will not just meet the new expectations of subscribers, but truly own them!
That’s why leading PayTV providers are deploying CDNs in their networks. They want to assure high performance and economical scaling of the advanced video services they deliver to their subscribers.
Two defining characteristics of Alcatel-Lucent’s proven Velocix CDN solution are:
- Per-session encryption; a must-have security capability to deliver premium video services to multiple screens
- A managed service offer; reducing risk, cost and time-to-market
Alcatel-Lucent is helping IPTV and cable/MSO service providers transform their PayTV networks to offer new, advanced video services. Drawing on our pedigree in IP networking and systems integration, our experience in IPTV service delivery and advanced video service networks, Alcatel-Lucent offers its customers the network for video and the expertise to build it.
