EVIO Polska, a Polish fibre TV service provider, has chosen the ABOX42 M-Series SmartSTB platform for its new service Telewizja Swiatlowodowa, which will be used by over 100 local fibre-optic networks throughout Poland, delivered by EVIO and local ISP operators.
EVIO is one of the first service providers to deliver an IPTV service with multimedia features, as a managed service to fibre operators in Poland.
“The ABOX42 M-Series SmartSTB with its compelling hardware design, the latest technology hard- and software-architecture allows us to offer a complete product for advanced users on fibre networks. In addition we were able to bring our service live with least development efforts and with very short project lead-time ”, said Mariusz Filipiak, chairman of the board at EVIO Polska,
“Operator services over time get more and more complex and offer much deeper functionality than in the traditional TV world. With our advanced SmartSTB platform and the rich software functions of the ABOX42 Smart SDK as well as the comprehensive ABOX42 Lifecycle Management solution, EVIO was able to develop a compelling TV application with advanced TV features and a modern UI”, Oliver Soellner, member of the management board of ABOX42, said. “Our SDK is based on fast performing HTML5 and can easily be integrated into existing operator back-ends”.
