Vodafone Selects Edgeware for FTTH Video Delivery in the Netherlands

Edgeware's D-VDN Solution Enabled Vodafone NL to Rapidly Deploy Video on Demand and Catch-Up TV Over Its High-Speed Fiber Network

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- The Cable Show Booth 1304 - Edgeware, the technology leader in distributed video delivery, today announced that Vodafone NL has deployed Edgeware´s Distributed Video Delivery Networks (D-VDN) Solution to deliver the Vodafone Thuis service to its Dutch fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) subscribers.

"Edgeware's highly scalable D-VDN Solution enabled us to rapidly deploy advanced video services over our high speed fiber network," said Ruud van den Oosterkamp, IPTV project lead at Vodafone Netherlands.

"We are excited to be part of Vodafone's innovative multi-service delivery platform which we see as one of the first examples of an emerging trend with mobile operators moving into the video delivery space," said Joachim Roos, CEO and founder of Edgeware. "With our unified video delivery solution we are well positioned to provide the scalability and quality of experience needed for mobile communication providers like Vodafone to deploy successful next-generation video services over converged networks."

The Edgeware D-VDN enabled the launch of the Thuis service over Vodafone´s own fiber network following the acquisition of Dutch FTTH provider Wiericke last year. The service was deployed within less than six months and offers three all-in-one packages including high speed internet (50, 100 or 500 MB), phone calls, an extensive Video on Demand library including movies and series, as well as 53 digital TV channels with a 10 day catch up library from public broadcasters and channels.

The Edgeware Distributed Video Delivery Network (D-VDN) is a highly optimized IP video delivery solution that enables operators to quickly implement and scale a full range of services with true pay-TV quality to all devices. The fully consolidated caching, recording and delivery network provides highly efficient network recording for on-demand TV services such as catch-up TV and Cloud DVR.
