Entone, Minerva take a trip Down Under
FTTx/IPTV network integrator CEOS has selected Entone's StreamLiner network video recorders (NVRs) and Minerva Network's iTVManager for IPTV deployments it is contracted to build in Victoria and Tasmania, Australia, and throughout Thailand.
The deployments will support more than 100,000 subscribers, and will be built under the auspices of the Collaborative Optical Leading Testbed (COLT) organization, which provides broadband services to universities, homes, student dormitories and business and is fully supported by local government entities.
Minerva's iTVManager middleware platform will help network operators manage their systems. Entone's StreamLiner NVR is based on standard server hardware from vendors such as HP and IBM.
