Intelliden IPTV Solution for Next Generation Service Delivery

  1. 1. > INTELLIGENT NETWORKING SOLUTIONS SOLUTION BRIEF Intelliden IPTV Solution for Next Generation Service Delivery Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are looking to Internet Protocol television (IPTV) as a key weapon in both defending their existing core businesses and expanding into new, high-value services—from traditional broadcast TV, to video-on-demand (VoD), to unique forms of interactive entertainment including online gaming. More than just an incremental service offering, IPTV is rapidly becoming a service imperative that establishes the foundation on which all future ‘next generation’ services and customer relationships will be built. IPTV Deployment Challenges Intelliden IPTV Solution Several technical challenges lie ahead before IPTV services Based on the award winning R-Series® platform and patented become mass market offerings and generate substantial technology, Intelliden’s automated solution for broadband revenue streams for CSPs. Consumers will demand guaranteed services enables service providers to control, manage, and scale TV-quality video and superior user experience before aban- critical network resources, while providing assured delivery of doning their favorite cable or satellite service provider. applications and services. Intelliden’s IPTV solution provides real-time state awareness of critical network resources across Flawless delivery of resource-intensive and delay-sensitive the network, and facilitates rapid and reliable delivery of services such as IPTV requires deterministic performance, and IPTV and other next generation services over a converged IP coordination of a complex ecosystem of middleware and infrastructure. Intelliden’s automated approach streamlines network components such as content servers and core and and simplifies the operational management of multi-vendor edge networking devices. Ensuring QoS, performance, scala- network devices across the network, accelerates network-wide bility, reliability and customized user experience over such a service rollouts, and improves operational efficiencies. diverse architecture is essential to success. The evolution to multi-service networks has consequently generated significantly increased demands for network resources and placed new requirements on infra- structure and OSS. Analysts estimate that the cost of implementation and support for an IPTV customer exceeds $700 USD in the first year. With such a significant investment at stake, service providers must deploy disciplined and repeatable processes, and get it right the first time. Providing real-time state awareness of network resources is Figure 1 (above): Intelliden’s R-Series provides highly granular critical to successful IPTV service provisioning, and key to control of network resources, and interacts with existing OSS ensuring that service providers , maintaining control over systems which control applications and services through operational costs as well as optimizing the user experience. open and extensible APIs.
