Viettel expands TV offering with new cable services enabled by Ericsson

18 Jun 2014

Vietnamese military-run telecoms group Viettel is deploying the Ericsson Multi-platform Video Processing solution with the Ericsson AVP 4000 system encoder to enable the delivery of cable TV alongside its existing IPTV services. The Swedish vendor will be responsible for services such as design, supply and systems integration – for systems involved in everything from acquisition to transmission at the head-end, inclusive of multiple sub systems – as well as commissioning and support of the operator’s complex ecosystem. ‘Our priorities lie in keeping our viewers happy and we evolve our services in line with this, making sure that our offerings are reflective of industry trends and shifts,’ commented Le Van Khuong, CTO at Viettel Television, adding: ‘The addition of cable services further strengthens our standing in the Vietnamese TV market and puts us in a great position to deliver more content to our subscribers. Ericsson’s capability and reputation for delivering first-class solutions alongside system services and support means it is able to meet the requirements of our complex TV project.’ Ericsson’s solution is optimised for scalability, reliability and advanced picture quality, while also delivering cost savings due to the high efficiency of the Ericsson AVP 4000.
