WHAT:     The Secure Reseller Model: The "Killer App" to Make IPTV a Reality in

Latin America .” The business case for telcos in

Latin America entering the video market inherently depends on whether they can upgrade their networks cost-effectively. Many smaller operators do not have the resources to offer HD premium content. However by leveraging a centralized IPTV head end, telcos can share the major infrastructure, which significantly lowers the barriers and risks of investment in CAPEX and OPEX to enter the IPTV market.   


Oetegenn will lead the panel to discuss different IPTV wholesale/retail models that support an enhanced subscriber experience with rich content offerings in a seamless lineup, while enhancing overall distribution integrity and operational costs with a unified content security model.  


WHEN:     Wednesday, 5 Dec. at 10:45 a.m.
