15 Sep 2008

Cypriot telecoms service provider the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (CYTA) has picked Pirelli Broadband Solutions to supply it with set-top boxes for its IPTV service on the island. The operator will use the vendor’s IP100 high-definition set-top boxes to support the fledgling service. The IP100 range supports H.264 decoding and TR-069 remote management and is part of a suite of STBs already deployed in other European markets for IPTV services – including hybrid DVB-T/IPTV and PVR capable models.
