  • 5. Brief Introduction to Inuk Networks
    • Inuk Networks is a triple-play service provider which has capitalised on the rapid growth of broadband technologies by developing a platform for the distribution of broadcast quality TV and carrier-class telephony over closed IP-based networks
    • Freewire is the company’s branded platform for the delivery of video, voice and data services to consumer customers , with an initial direct focus on the student market
    • Inuk’s Freewire platform can be customised and delivered as a wholesale solution , offering broadband providers ultimate flexibility in how they position and brand their TV, voice and entertainment service offerings
  • 6. TV for Students in the UK
    • Poor reception and poor choice of content
    • Aerials often an unsightly addition to buildings
    • 2008 now confirmed as start date for analogue switch off in UK
    • Digital TV will present problems to students and landlords alike:
      • Portables likely to have problems working with external aerials
      • Roof aerials/coax rings likely to have problems with interference and ground loops
  • 7. Student Telephone Trends in the UK
    • Mobiles have been pervasive for some time
    • VoIP has become mainstream
    • Revenues from calling card systems are diminishing
    • Backlash against 0870 numbers
    • Expensive, “locked down” student telephone systems are past their sell-by-date!
    • Students moving to VoIP of their own accord
  • 8. Introducing Freewire Triple Play
    • IPTV solution offering free & premium content
    • Carrier-class VoIP solution offering free community calls, very low cost breakout calls
    • Broadband internet access via Ethernet for halls and DSL for homes
  • 9. P2P Technology for Broadcasting
    • Inuk trialling P2P technology for VoD (i.e. non-linear) applications on closed networks (e.g. Universities)
    • Technology and particularly business model unproven:
      • “ Over-the top” technology is attractive to users (& broadcasters?) but someone has to pay for the network costs
    • ISPs already saying they will not bear the cost of the required bandwidth:
      • One hour of (near-broadcast quality) viewing is 320MB downloaded & 105MB uploaded
      • 1GB cap exhausted in 10 hours
      • Changes ISP contention and network planning models
    • Limited to PC platform only:
      • STB platform not available
      • Unrealistic bandwidth for High Definition
  • 10. Multicast Technology for Broadcasting
    • Multicast is the only way to cost-effectively deliver broadcast-quality linear TV over any network infrastructure
    • Network cost per user for 100 viewers on an exchange watching 2 hours of HD content *:
      • IP Stream: £22.16
      • LLU Unicast: £ 2.10
      • LLU Multicast: £ 0.04
    • Inuk’s strategy is to partner with network operators (as opposed to building its own network)
    • As such, Freewire can be an “over the top” service operating on any multicast enabled network
    * “HD-TV over IP: Who Pays the Bill?” by The IP Development Network
  • 11.
    • Partnership agreement with the JANET backbone
    • Over 16 million end users
    • Fully multicast enabled
    • Student accommodation does not commonly provide for either analogue or digital TV
    • Digital Switchover will mean indoor aerials become even poorer
    • Around 500,000 University hall residents will be able to receive the IPTV feeds
