Vodafone Netherlands has deployed Edgeware´s distributed video delivery networks (D-VDN) solution to deliver the Vodafone Thuis service to its Dutch fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) subscribers.
The Edgeware D-VDN is a consolidated caching, recording and delivery network provides network recording for on-demand TV services such as catch-up TV and cloud DVR. It has enabled the launch of the Thuis service over Vodafone´s own fibre network following the acquisition of Dutch FTTH provider Wiericke last year. The service was deployed within less than six months and offers three all-in-one packages including high speed Internet (50MB, 100MB or 500MB), phone calls, a video-on-demand (VOD) library including movies and series, as well as 53 digital TV channels with a 10-day catch-up library from public broadcasters and channels.
"Edgeware's highly scalable D-VDN Solution enabled us to rapidly deploy advanced video services over our high speed fibre network," said Ruud van den Oosterkamp, IPTV project lead at Vodafone Netherlands.
Joachim Roos, CEO and founder of Edgeware, added: "We are excited to be part of Vodafone's innovative multi-service delivery platform which we see as one of the first examples of an emerging trend with mobile operators moving into the video delivery space. With our unified video delivery solution we are well positioned to provide the scalability and quality of experience needed for mobile communication providers like Vodafone to deploy successful next-generation video services over converged networks."
