Ericsson enters IPTV partnership with Edgeware

Edgeware, the provider of server systems for network deployed on demand TV, has announced a global IPTV cooperation with Ericsson.

With this agreement, Edgeware is integrating its solid state VoD platform with the Ericsson end to end IPTV solution and OpenStream Digital Services Platform to enable operators worldwide to easily deploy advanced on demand TV services.

Edgeware’s network-distributed server architecture allows operators to utilise their existing network, even when bandwidth and quality of service are limited, by caching popular content close to the viewers.

Mikael Samuelsson, VP of channel sales at Edgeware, stated: “We are proud to be part of the Ericsson IPTV solution. Partnering with an industry leader like Ericsson gives us a strong global reach and together we are able to provide advanced IPTV solutions to a large number of operators around the world.”
