Amino has completed a project with Vodafone Iceland for the upcycling of its existing inventory of set-top boxes.
Already in the field, Vodafone was in need of a software platform which could provide long term software support for its Samsung STBs as well as being able to run on any new boxes it might deploy.
Amino was able to download its AminoOS to the existing boxes as part of a new roadmap for the Icelandic operator.
Vodafone Iceland was already running a multiscreen OTT video service powered by Amino’s sister company 24i.
“AminoOS will provide Vodafone Iceland with the device agility necessary to keep its investment relevant to the rapidly changing needs of the marketplace. Our Engage solution will also help Vodafone to reduce support costs and device lifecycle management – dramatically reducing the timescales of rolling out upgrades and new advanced services,” said Amino CEO, Donald McGarva.
AminoOS is a hardware-agnostic platform middleware that can be deployed across both new and devices. This gives operators mature device software that provides the relevant interfaces and subsystems for security, management, players and network integration – independent of the underlying hardware.
The complete solution includes Amino Engage, a SaaS platform for streamlining customer service and providing management tools designed to reduce operational costs.
