TeliaSonera International Carrier is launching a new media distribution service consisting of a content publishing platform together with an extensive IP network. MPS Broadband has been selected as the exclusive partner to provide the publishing platform which will underpin a portfolio of new services for the distribution of video and rich media content over the TeliaSonera International Carrier global IP network.

The new TeliaSonera International Carrier Media Distribution Service will offer a complete end-to-end service for upload, storage and distribution of video content to the end user over the TeliaSonera International Carrier IP backbone. The service will also handle all aspects of content management, business models, DRM, security, reporting, statistics and end-user interfaces. The new service is complementary to TeliaSonera International Carrier's fibre based contribution network designed for the transport of real-time, broadcast quality video content.

"We are very confident that with the combination of the TeliaSonera International Carrier global IP backbone and the MPS publishing platform, we will be able to offer broadcasters and content rights holders a complete portfolio of services comprising live streaming, download, video-on-demand and secure storage," said Malin Frenning, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier.
