Cologne, Germany – May 26, 2009 – ANGA Cable Show – Edgeware, the provider of revolutionary server systems for network deployed on-demand TV, and Teleste Corporation (HEL:TEL1V), a global leader of broadband cable networks and video surveillance networks, today announced a partnership and global reseller agreement under which Teleste will resell Edgeware’s video server products.
Edgeware’s Orbit and Web TV Server products are pre-integrated with Teleste’s MyCast hybrid IPTV/DVB middleware. In combination with the Teleste Luminato digital head-end and edge-QAM platform, an attractive end to end cable infrastructure solution can be offered. The solution supports advanced TV services, including VoD, time shifted live TV and video over the web.
“Partnering with Edgeware enables Teleste to offer its customers an advanced pre-integrated on-demand solution which is both cost-effective, reliable and fast to deploy,” said Seppo Kalli, business director at Teleste Corporation. “This enables us to serve our customers better by offering a complete turn-key solution which, in addition to software and hardware components, includes world-class professional services for installation, maintenance and support.”
This integrated solution allows cable TV and IPTV operators to seamlessly upscale their on-demand service as their subscriber base grows. With ultra efficient Edgeware servers delivering 20 Gbps from 1U, operators can scale from powerful centralized configurations to distributed edge deployments, for best total economy.
With this reseller agreement, Edgeware will benefit from Teleste’s strong presence, not only in the Nordics, Western Europe and other established markets, but in high growth markets including Eastern Europe and APAC/India.
“This agreement follows our strategy to further scale our business by leveraging strong partnerships. In Teleste we have found a partner with complementary technology to deliver powerful, highly integrated and competitive systems to the market,” said Joachim Roos, CEO at Edgeware.
This integrated solution will be demonstrated at Teleste’s booth E19, in Hall 10.2 at the ANGA Cable, show in Cologne, Germany from May 26-28, 2009.
