Latens, the cardless CA technology owned by Pace, has been selected by the Belgian cable operator Telenet.
The Titanium software-only conditional access system has to date been deployed in over 400,000 set-top boxes.
Latens Titanium enables one system to run across multiple networks, providing Telenet with significant cost savings and ensuring that its CAS platform can grow and adapt in line with its services.
“Protecting our assets is extremely important to us,” said Noam Raffaelli, VP Network & Systems Engineering, Telenet. “Given the size and diversity of our subscriber base, we needed a content security solution that we could install quickly and cost-effectively, but that would grow and adapt with our requirements.
Liberty Global-owned Telenet is autonomus from the rest of the Liberty Global, which predominantly uses Nagra CA on the UPC network.
“With video increasingly being watched on PCs and mobile devices, forward thinking service operators like Telenet require a content security solution that can adapt to support all of these new platforms, as well as set-top boxes in the home,” said Latens President Carmi Bogot.
Latens developed and launched the world’s DVB compliant software-only CAS eight years ago, since then it has been deployed to operators globally.
