IP solutions provider BNS says it has won a contract to design and implement a turnkey HD and SD IPTV service platform for Indonesian telecommunications provider Multi Kontrol Nusantara (MKN), a subsidiary company of Bakrie Group. PRweb reports that the new service will be rolled out in the Rasuna area in Jakarta by the end of 2008 before being rolled out nationally within three years. The vendor’s IPTV service platform will allow the operator to offer high definition services including multicast, VoD, network PVR, time-shift TV, eShopping, gaming and other services. The new network will be built on a core fibre-optic backbone using Ethernet and various other access technologies, BNS said, providing cost effective multimedia services to residential users, office buildings and hotels.
