North Dakota Telephone Company (NDTC) has selected Optibase's MGW 5100 carrier-grade IPTV streaming platform to deliver local television channels to its subscribers.

NDTC, which serves approximately 18,000 lines in 25 exchanges in Devils Lake, N.D., is a partner with two other companies in the Dakota Video Network (DVN), an IP video headend. NDTC plans to locally augment video/audio services available from DVN with Optibase's headend to produce H.264, MPEG-4 Part 10 compressed video/audio content. Services will be distributed through both ADSL2+ and active FTTP networks.

Optibase said telecommunications engineering and consulting group CC&I Engineering recommended Optibase as the headend provider for the deployment of a multichannel digital video and audio service to homes and residences in Devils Lake, N.D.
