Amino Communications has secured an 18-month contract to supply Tele2 Netherlands with set-top boxes for its IPTV service. Cambridge-based Amino will supply its latest A132 and A532 MPEG-4 dual SD/HD compatible and PVR models.
Amino Communications chief executive officer Andrew Burke described the win as being strategically important. “In a strong and competitive selection process, we were able to demonstrate a compelling package of product, partnerships, flexibility and a deep understanding of the needs and demands of network operators, like Tele2, that are actively deploying IPTV services.”
Tele2 has around 400,000 customers, though not all take the IPTV service. As reported in Broadband TV News, next year Tele2 will start to offer VDSL, allowing transport of a number of HD channels (more in Broadband TV News passim).
