Alcatel-Lucent supports online video services for Wind in Italy

23 Apr 2015

Wind Telecomunicazioni of Italy has contracted Alcatel-Lucent to support its launch of premium video and TV services for both fixed and mobile users with the deployment of its Velocix Content Delivery Network (CDN) solution. The Alcatel platform will enable Wind to manage video traffic on its network and provide an optimised experience for customers, regardless of the device they use to access content. Alcatel-Lucent’s industrial research arm Bell Labs estimates that online video consumption will have increased twelve-fold by 2020, placing increasing strain on fixed and mobile networks, so video traffic must be managed to accommodate the additional demand without affecting quality of service (QoS).
