Vodafone’s Dutch arm picks Edgeware for FTTH delivery

1 May 2014

US-based distributed video delivery specialist Edgeware has deployed its Distributed Video Delivery Networks (D-VDN) solution on Vodafone Netherlands’ network, to enable the telco to deliver its ‘Vodafone Thuis’ service to its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) subscribers. Ruud van den Oosterkamp, IPTV project lead at Vodafone Netherlands, said: ‘Edgeware’s highly scalable D-VDN Solution enabled us to rapidly deploy advanced video services over our high speed fibre network’.

In a press release, the pair confirmed that the implementation of the vender’s D-VDN solution enabled the launch of Thuis over Vodafone´s fibre-optic network following the acquisition of fellow Dutch FTTH provider Wiericke last year. The FTTH service was rolled out in less than six months and offers three ‘all-in-one’ packages, including high speed internet (50Mbps, 100Mbps or 500Mbps), phone calls, an extensive video-on-demand (VoD) library including movies and series, as well as 53 digital TV channels with a ten-day catch up library from public broadcasters and channels. The Edgeware-supplied D-VDN is described as ‘a highly optimised IP video delivery solution that enables operators to quickly implement and scale a full range of services with true pay-TV quality to all devices’.
