Andorra Telecom launches VOD service

Andorra TelecomAndorra Telecom has deployed Broadpeak’s CDN manager and the Viaccess-Orca service delivery platform, with Sofrecom as system integrator, to power a new VOD service.

Since 2009, Andorra’s IPTV platform has been active and the operator is now launching a new VOD service.

“We’re very proud to have successfully managed the integration of best-of-breed technologies with our partners Broadpeak and Viaccess-Orca,” said Jean-Charles Romeu, SVP large projects and new services, Sofrecom.

“To support an increasing subscriber demand for video-on-demand content, it was important to find a solution that was both flexible and scalable,” continued Romeu.

“Broadpeak’s CDN server technologies feature a massive streaming and recording capacity that can incrementally grow to support our increasing volume of VOD assets. As part of a fully integrated solution that includes Viaccess-Orca’s award-winning, scalable service delivery platform, Broadpeak solutions will allow us to cost-effectively add other advanced video services such as nPVR and OTT in the future.”

“We are confident that Andorra Telecom will be able to offer a great VOD service to our customers when it is launched,” said Joan-Marc Lauga, CTO, Andorra Telecom.

Load balancing and failover tasks are managed by Broadpeak’s BkM100 unified CDN manager, which has been integrated by Sofrecom experts with the Viaccess-Orca RiGHTv service delivery platform.

“Viaccess-Orca is pleased to continue our longstanding relationship with Andorra Telecom through this integration with Broadpeak,” said François Moreau de Saint Martin, CEO Viaccess-Orca.
