As the telco increasingly rounds out its global offer to include TV and video, Vodafone has deployed the Nagra Security Services Platform (SSP) to protect content on its services.

Nagra’s SSP is designed to provide a single content value protection system for converged TV services on multiple networks, including IPTV, hybrid broadcast and OTT platforms.

The deployment — initially in Italy, Greece, Spain and New Zealand with more European and East European countries deployments to follow — is the first for Nagra with an operator. Nagra believes that by deploying its solution, Vodafone can fundamentally simplify its TV operations and reduce overheads while still allowing it to meet all relevant Hollywood and sports rights holder requirements for enhanced, and unified, content protection.

The cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution will aim to enable Vodafone to secure multiple network types – including IPTV, hybrid broadcast and OTT – using a single content protection platform. It also provides Vodafone with the Nagra Connect client for converged CAS/DRM content protection, as well as the OpenTV Player to extend the viewing experience securely to portable devices.

“As one of the world’s fastest growing broadband providers, it was critical for us to work with a partner who could deliver a solution specifically designed for converged networks, but one that is also easy to deploy and addresses our need for scale and international reach,” explained Nuno Sanches, Vodafone’s head of product development. “The Nagra Security Services Platform and its cloud-based model have helped us achieve that, enabling fast-time-to-market of the VTV service.”
