Turkish pay-TV operator Türksat has tapped Teleste to provide a headend system to deliver cable TV, over-the-top (OTT) video and IPTV, and live content processing.

Turksat logo 11 June 2018Comprising Teleste’s Luminato digital headend system, the platform will be installed in partnership with Teleste’s Turkish value added reseller.

One RU Luminato chassis can host up to 144 QAM channels, claims Finnish company Teleste, allowing high-performing video services in a space-saving form.

“With the amount of IP traffic increasing by the day, many cable operators are expanding their business by scaling up their networks and DOCSIS-based IP capacity,” explained Julius Tikkanen, vice president of Video Service Platforms, Teleste. “However, as networks grow, headend sites and hubs— which are usually set in buildings with limited available space—cannot be easily extended or relocated to take care of the increase in installations. This means that operators need to find solutions that can utilise the existing headend space to the maximum.”

Ender Kümüştekin, sales director added: “We look forward to continue our cooperation with Teleste to provide Türksat with the latest headend technology on the market. We are confident that the flexible and compact Luminato platform meets their requirements of rich and reliable content delivery for years to come”.

The Luminato also features a reduced need for cooling, which minimises its power consumption and increases its eco-friendly credentials, added Teleste.
