Andorra Telecom to expand IPTV offering with Viaccess-Orca

Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global provider of OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, has announced that Andorra Telecom, a telecom operator in the Principality of Andorra, will expand the footprint of its IPTV service and launch a renewed, state-of-the-art next-gen TV offering using VO's TV Platform and DRM solutions.

VO's solutions will enable Andorra Telecom to securely deliver live and VOD content including advanced services such as live VOD, catch-up TV, start-over TV, and NPVR to subscribers in multiple places.

"Video consumption is changing, and our goal is to keep our consumers engaged with best-of-breed services. At the same time, we will also expand our IPTV capabilities outside of the Andorran territory and reach potential customers connected to FTTH networks belonging to our partners," said Alberto Sáenz de Ugarte, CTIO at Andorra Telecom. "We have used Viaccess-Orca's TV Platform for several years to manage our IPTV services and were impressed by the way it simplifies orchestration and monetization. Upgrading the TV Platform and adding VO DRM to the mix will streamline the launch of our new services and extension to foreign territories."

VO's next-generation TV platform will boost content personalization and engagement for Andorra Telecom's IPTV service. In addition, it will enable Andorra Telecom to efficiently manage subscribers and content delivery to all countries from a single platform, thus reducing costs. Using the VO's DRM solutions, Andorra Telecom can securely distribute premium content on any device and in any delivery format. VO DRM solutions are flexible and scalable, speeding up new service launches.

VO will also provide Andorra Telecom with system integration and professional services, to ensure smooth deployment for the next phases of its IPTV offerings.

"After supporting Andorra Telecom's IPTV service for several years, we are excited to take part in this service expansion project," said Paul Molinier, CEO, Viaccess-Orca. "Our TV Platform and DRM solutions provide a strong foundation for Andorra Telecom's future offerings, enabling the operator to manage the whole spectrum of TV services in a unified and streamlined way. Used by millions of consumers around the world, Connected Sentinel will provide high availability and performance while helping Andorra Telecom to meet the growing demand for multi-screen services."
