Ericsson licenses Kasenna TV software
The license is for PortalTV, which includes Kasenna's LivingRoom and MediaBase XMP software. The collection supports video-on-demand and network DVR applications.
Ericsson plans to team Kasenna's software with its range of networking products and target the combo to IPTV service providers.
"The partnership between our two companies will extend from an integrated IPTV product suite to a tightly coupled sales and support services organization that will make it easier for telecom operators to immediately deploy a competitive, carrier-grade TV solution that not only generates revenue today but positions them for tomorrow's needs," said Kumar Shah, the recently named CEO of Kasenna.
