Multi-network Solutions in the Real World at IBC 2012
While early incarnations of multi-network architectures were primarily focused on combining managed IP networks with digital cable and satellite networks, the focus has shifted to combinations of services over broadcast and unmanaged (over-the-top) networks. Combinations of DVB or IPTV with OTT hybrid is growing rapidly: operators can leverage their existing broadcast networks and add OTT functionality through the consumer’s broadband links. Thus a new breed of multi-network architecture has been born. It is simple in concept, yet quite complex in practice.
This installment of the Multi-network Solutions in the Real World Forum series discussed real-world examples of multi-network video rollouts. It was offered on-site during IBC 2012, with the goal to break down the technical and business challenges that operators face with multi-network services. The presentations can be viewed in the agenda section below.
