In response to a growing demand from consumers for content anywhere, any time
Taiwan’s Chunghwa Telecom has selected Ericsson to deploy and integrate a new IPTV platform that will deliver multi-screen interactive multimedia services to more than 900,000 subscribers.
Chunghwa’s existing IPTV system will be replaced by the new platform to respond to a growing demand from consumers for content anywhere, any time on a wide range of devices including TVs, computers, smartphones and tablets.
The Chunghwa Telecom deal also includes Ericsson Multiscreen TV and the Ericsson Media Connect (IPTV Remote) service.
Ericsson China & North East Asia president Mats H Olsson said by offering this enhanced viewing experience, Chunghwa will be able to maintain its leading position in the IPTV arena, and their end-to-end offering will also enable the operator to enjoy new revenues from advanced TV services.
Through its consulting and systems integration capabilities, Ericsson will be the prime integrator of the end-to-end solution, which covers everything from digital rights management to video servers, content management offerings and installation of set-top boxes.
The new services from Chunghwa Telecom are due to be available to subscribers in December of this year.
