System Integration

End-to-End System Integration

Multiscreen OTT, IPTV and Hybrid Linear Video Solutions are complex technical ecosystems that are beginning to intersect with equally complex systems like Internet of Things, Advanced Advertising and Big Data. These ecosystems require management of thousands of assets, network management of dedicated and shared bandwidth, robust conditional access and session-based encryption, dynamic session setup and teardown of unicast streams and an ever-expanding number of IP-enabled, connected devices. 

These technical ecosystems extend from the billing system through the operator’s network infrastructure, touching centralized super-headends, regional distribution hubs all the way to personalization engines linked to custom user interfaces. Complex System Integration entails a multi-vendor effort and a structured approach that integrates all elements and culminates with comprehensive end-to-end testing and deployment.
