UAE IPTV network Etisalat is deploying the latest Pace Advanced Residential Gateway and HD PVR as part of its eLife triple play service.
The Gateway will deliver a variety of wireless services into the home while the Pace HD PVR will support delivery of the services including VOD.
“Etisalat has a strong presence in the Middle East and so the opportunity to help the corporation take digital services in the region to the next level is very exciting,” said Pace Europe President Mathias Hautefort. “The new solutions are a great example of how we can enable operators to offer new and expanded services, increasing their revenue potential while also offering consumers a fantastic and user-friendly experience.”
“Etisalat’s new generation fiber-optic network is set to give a huge boost to HDTV in the UAE, along with fast-speed Internet and enhanced phone services,” said Raju T. Jethwani, Chairman of Eurostar Group, which will distribute the products.
Pace’s HD PVR, a Linux based platform, and its Advanced Residential Gateway, integrate the Soft @ Home Middleware and the Verimatrix Conditional Access system.
