Alcatel-Lucent to deploy its Velocix Digital Media Delivery Platform in Orcon’s key centres across New Zealand
Orcon has selected Alcatel-Lucent to improve the delivery and experience of Internet-based video to its customers.
Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its Velocix Digital Media Delivery Platform in key centres across New Zealand, allowing Orcon to offer broadcasters, content distributors and web-site owners a faster connection to broadband users across multiple networks and devices including PCs, mobiles and TVs.
The Velocix platform is a converged, scalable, next generation, all-IP multiservice infrastructure that allows operators to deliver traffic reliably, cost effectively, while also leveraging the network to generate revenue from sophisticated managed services and applications.
Orcon head of wholesale Charlie Boyd said that as video-on-demand and streaming TV web sites grow in popularity, the amount of online video watched by broadband users is growing at an incredible rate.
"By leveraging Alcatel-Lucent’s Velocix infrastructure, we can offer content providers a local content delivery network (CDN) solution that meets their specific requirements, with the assurance of knowing its technology and services are proven by telcos and broadcasters around the world," Boyd said.
