Telekom Romania goes Everywhere with Viaccess-Orca1 October 2014
Telekom Romania, part of Deutsche Telekom, has selected Viaccess-Orca’s Voyage-TV Everywhere solution to drive its upcoming new IPTV and OTT multiscreen service, Telekom TV.
Viaccess-Orca served as the primary system integrator on the project, working with third-party technology partners Cap Gemini, Friendly Technologies, Broadpeak, Harmonic, Accedo, and Zenterio. Using Viaccess-Orca’s Voyage solution, which includes the company’s RiGHTv unified service delivery platform and COMPASS content discovery platform, Telekom Romania can deliver a wide range of content, including live television, VoD, and catch-up TV, to subscribers on any screen.
Voyage supports all types of TV and video service delivery modes on all devices with any business model,the company claims. With the new unified platform Telekom Romania hopes to support more device types, reduce costs, increase operational efficiencies, and quickly expand its service offering. Telekom TV is also available beyond the Telekom Romania customer base via monthly subscriptions, designed to increase the service’s reach and revenue.
“To provide a superior multiscreen service to potentially millions of subscribers across Romania, we needed a TV Everywhere solution that offers unparalleled levels of interactivity and personalisation. Unifying the service delivery across different networks by using a single converged system was also important,” said Nikolai Beckers, CEO of Telekom Romania. “Viaccess-Orca’s Voyage solution enables us to offer a compelling personalised television experience on every screen. Our customers can create favourite channels lists, bookmark movies or channels, set up reminders, and record preferred content on all connected devices.”
