The rise of the software-empowered video operator has been much heralded in this blog and in various white papers – including part 1 and part 2 of our Rise of the Software-Empowered Operator e-book – as well as articles.

Together we agreed that we are under healthy pressure and in the best-position, to provide operators with flexible solutions to help them migrate to a multi-network, software-based video delivery and monetization business model over the next few years.

We believed that all video delivery systems will simply be referred to as digital TV, and IP will underpin almost every aspect, regardless if it is a telco TV network or a hybrid satellite/broadband combination.
