Beyond Triple Play - More Content, Less Overhead
For telecommunications providers looking to broaden their offering, reach a new subscriber base, and lower churn – offering a cost-effective and content-rich “triple play” of high-speed Internet, high-definition television, and phone service is mission critical.
To accommodate ever-growing bandwidth demands and deliver on the promise of triple-play, telcos have been forced to upgrade their network hardware and architectures. At the same time, in a highly-competitive market, staying profitable has become a central challenge.
As high-speed connectivity and content costs skyrocket, telcos are seeking solutions to cost-effectively leverage existing broadcast TV and subscriber home networks to deliver converged OTT content and live stream broadcast TV via IP from any source to any platform, anywhere in the subscriber site.
To accomplish this, telcos need branded, easily-implemented, multi-room and cross-platform solutions that seamlessly integrate with the home network. They need portable, durable, and reliable solutions that enable access to live stream TV and other content across the household – on TVs, PCs, smartphones, tablets, and other IP-enabled devices.
