Alcatel-Lucent wins “Best Network Technology for IPTV” award with its Velocix CDN solution

In conjunction with the IP&TV World Forum 2012, a panel of senior industry experts has presented Alcatel-Lucent’s Velocix content delivery network (CDN) solution with the “Best Network Technology for IPTV” award.

The Alcatel-Lucent Velocix CDN enables pay-TV service providers – both IPTV and cable operators – to quickly, securely and cost-effectively meet consumers’ demand for a high quality TV experience that is more interactive, more personal, more social, and available on any screen.

Alcatel-Lucent is leading the way in this space: it not only architects the networks for video, but also has the expertise to integrate them into existing infrastructures; reference customers for the company’s Velocix CDN include TalkTalk (UK), Verizon (US), Orcon (New Zealand), and some of the largest cable operators in the US.

Paul Larbey, Vice President and General Manager of Alcatel-Lucent’s Velocix activities: “We are very proud to accept this award and recognition for our Velocix CDN solution. By deploying a CDN, service providers can securely deliver all programming to authorized consumers on their connected device of choice. At the same time, they have the ability to provide the content delivery control and quality assurance that content owners see as essential to the successful distribution of their content. With Alcatel-Lucent’s Velocix CDN, pay-TV operators can delight consumers as well as content rights holders, and secure their role as the preferred distributor of premium video entertainment services.”
