As well as having success with SaaS and cloud, Synamedia is also reporting increased uptake by firms using its virtual Digital Content Manager (vDCM) and Virtualised Cable Access products. In particular it recently signed the largest deal in its video network division’s ’s history with a $90 million contract for IP network optimisation.

Synamedia SaaS applications can be accessed through a cloud portal designed to streamline operations and reduce time to market. The portal allows customers to instantly launch multi-tenant SaaS offerings. The software provider assures that even the most complex configurations can go live in under 48 hours, thanks to its highly automated DevOps capabilities.

“Our cloud and SaaS business is booming as operators turn to opex models to cut costs and gain flexibility, but we are also seeing increased interest in our IP optimisation portfolio,” remarked Julien Signes, general manager of Video Network at Synamedia. “This reflects today’s economic environment where cable operators are looking to accelerate their transition to IP by optimising their existing infrastructure and set-top box investments.”

At IBC, Synamedia Video Network says it will demonstrate how its product portfolio is evolving to target three vertical customer solutions: B2B distribution, D2C streaming and IP network optimisation. Use cases covered include just-in-time streaming, point-to-point and multi-point distribution, disaster recovery, long-tail content processing, and low latency sports.
