Cisco showcases new CDS addition
The addition offers video on-demand (VOD) and streaming systems, but it also incorporates applications for delivering video to digital TVs and set-top boxes, as well as for delivering video, voice, music and data to Internet Protocol (IP) devices such as PCs, WiFi-connected mobile phones and PDAs.
The solution is part of the Cisco Internet Protocol Next-Generation Network (IP NGN), a converged network designed to deliver video, voice and data services with increased mobility.
"A new generation of entertainment is upon us with the maturing of user-generated and Web-based video," said Vince Vittore, senior analyst with The Yankee Group . "Service providers must respond by enabling customers new ways to create and consume content."
The CDS Internet streaming solution is scheduled for completion in Q3.
