Building A Secure Android-Based TV Service Platform
Swisscom provides a notable IPTV success story, an incumbent telecom operator with more than 1.17 million TV subscribers that is now taking the lion’s share of net television additions in a highly competitive market. The company introduced IPTV in 2006 and in April 2014 unveiled its next-generation offering, Swisscom TV 2.0.
￼￼￼￼￼Swisscom TV 2.0 is a landmark deployment. It demonstrates a migration from a Swisscom TV 1.0 deployment to an integrated multi-network and multi-screen service platform based in part on Android, something that made it easy for Swisscom to work directly with its initial set-top box manufacturers and reduce costs and time-to-market.
