UTStarcom Gets New IPTV Broadcasting Control Platform Expansion Contract
Beijing Television (BTV) has been working on its plans of expanding its existing IPTV (News
) broadcasting control platform (IBCP) and has thus handed over a new contract to UTStarcom Holdings Corp to build new capabilities.
Users can expect an improved BTV's IPTV content-management and distribution capabilities after the platform has been built with new IP-based safe distribution system.
'Our expansion project with BTV further solidifies our leading position in China's IPTV market,' said UTStarcom's (News
) president and chief executive officer, Mr. Jack Lu.
Lu said they have worked together with BTV to examine its service experience in order to design an enhanced service platform that better suits the needs of the operator. As a result, the expanded platform will feature a new IP-based safe distribution system that can monitor content distribution issues in real time, as well as automatically replace weak signals whenever a problem is identified.
"Expansion contracts similar to this one with BTV are typically larger in scale than the initial IBCP contracts we have signed. Not only will we continue to capitalize on opportunities to build additional IBCPs, but we also anticipate similar IBCP expansion contracts in the near future,' added Lu.
UTStarcom was previously involved in building BTV's existing IBCP. The contract represents the first IBCP expansion project awarded to the Company. This way, the company helps its customers rapidly deploy revenue-generating access services using their existing infrastructure, while providing a migration path to cost-efficient, end-to-end IP networks.
UTStarcom has its operational headquarters in Beijing, China and research and development operations in China and India. The Company sells its solutions to operators in both emerging and established telecommunications and cable markets around the world.
