Motorola said today that Codetel has selected its Communications Convergence Engine (CCE) to launch a new wave of pay-TV service offerings in the Caribbean. 

Motorola said that its CCE is an IPTV software platform that enables operators to rapidly conceive, design, package, deploy and manage a broad range of content and services.

Codetel deployed its new pay-TV service, using IP infrastructure (IPTV), in the Dominican Republic under the Claro TV brand.

“For the customers, this means that they will have a new provider of video services offering a richer, more modern, more compelling service than existing cable TV and satellite providers, as well as more choices, unlimited video-on-demand (VOD) titles and flexible channel bundles,” said Jorge Duron, Motorola’s vice president of sales for Latin America.
