Concurrent scores a customer win in Poland
Concurrent recently racked up a customer win with Vectra, which is Poland's second-largest cable operator.
Vectra will deploy Concurrent's MediaHawk VX unified content delivery platform in the first quarter of this year to enable video-on-demand services and, at some point, multi-screen services.
"Interest in high-quality video-on-demand (VOD) is growing rapidly in Poland, on both TV screens and connected devices," said Tomasz Zuranski, CEO of Vectra. "Concurrent offers an innovative content delivery solution that combines their best-of-breed VOD solution for TV environments with new multi-screen functionality that allows us to address PCs, tablets and smartphones in the future. We believe Concurrent's software is uniquely capable of satisfying both our immediate-term needs and our long-term strategic goals as we continue to expand the range of video services we offer to our subscribers."
Vectra delivers residential TV, traditional and mobile Internet services, and fixed-line telephone services to more than 800,000 subscribers across Poland. The company recently became a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), extending its offering to quad play by providing mobile telephony services.
"Vectra has a clear strategy for growth and our MediaHawk solution enables them to effectively compete for new subscribers in the multi-screen arena," said Dan Mondor, Concurrent's president and CEO. "As we extend our deployment footprint in Europe, Vectra will become an important 'showcase customer' for us, and a great example of how we can implement solutions that grow and evolve with our customers' needs
