Operator Vertical Integration with IPSoft iVision Hosted Edition Print E-mail
Netris, a Russian leader in IP-communications software development and system integration, presented IPSoft iVision Hosted Edition – an advanced version of IPSoft iVision IPTV Middleware specially developed to offer a new approach to operator business running in distributed environment. IPSoft iVision Hosted Edition provides operators with wide opportunities in suboperator model implementation.

“We were driven to the idea if this product creation by the market requirements,” – explains Timur Iseev, Netris CEO. “There are a lot of local operators interested in IPTV introduction but they can’t afford it because of lack of resources. Content-providers and big operators have opportunities to deploy IPTV. As they aimed to raise their revenue they could share content and services with local service-provides. Our solution appeals to unite advantages of both into effective economic model and together introduce new innovative services to enhance end-user experience.”

IPSoft iVision Hosted Edition is a carrier-class platform to enable interactive video (IPTV, VoD, PVR, etc.), interactive multimedia services (games, ads, etc.) for IPTV networks. This reliable and flexible platform is pre-integrated with leading VoD servers, OSS/BSS systems and IP STBs. For big operators it creates transparent information system that enables to launch new services in a short time, to form independent tariff plans (for local operators and end-user customers), to control service consumption, to collect statistics and to choose different business scenarios for local operators.

For local operators it’s end-to-end solution with a definite set of content and services. For service delivering they can use their own hardware resources or resources of head operator. In both cases head operator is in charge of content encryption that simplifies the process of CAS introduction and guarantees the content safety. But local operators have opportunity to launch own local content into the service list.

At the present IPSoft iVision Hosted Edition is deploying in several projects in Russia and CIS.
