Harmonic has entered into a contract with Deutsche Telekom’s affiliates in eastern and southern Europe to support the delivery of new TV services for the operator.
Leveraging Harmonic’s range of solutions, Deutsche Telekom affiliates will be able to deliver hundreds of IPTV and OTT video channels using less bandwidth, with a low total cost of ownership (TCO) and industry-leading video quality, the company claims.
Deutsche Telekom’s affiliates in eastern and southern Europe join a growing list of service providers around the globe who rely on Harmonic’s scalable and flexible solutions to deliver video quality to subscribers. Harmonic’s solutions support all the key emerging video applications, including HD and Ultra HD broadcasting, linear ad insertion, video on-demand and multiscreen delivery.

“By deploying a comprehensive solution from Harmonic, Deutsche Telekom’s affiliates in eastern and southern Europe will truly transform the way they deliver content,” said Ian Graham, vice president of sales, EMEA, at Harmonic. “As video content and service providers around the world look to roll out services to different screens faster, cheaper and with better quality, Harmonic is the only vendor that answers all of their complex content delivery requirements while lowering their TCO.”
