Alcatel-Lucent moves Swisscom PVR to the cloud

June 29, 2012

Alcatel-Lucent is enabling Swisscom – Switzerland’s leading telco – to give its customers the ability to record TV programmes and store them in the cloud and then watch their recordings on any connected screen wherever they are, whenever they want. The service will help Swisscom further differentiate their IPTV offering and increase revenues by attracting new customers.

Bruno Haug, Head of TV Development at Swisscom said: “We are pleased to continue our tradition of innovation and offering best-in-class customer service by being the first operator in Switzerland to offer our customers the possibility to watch their recordings on any connected screen. As part of the increasing demand for multiscreen services around the world, our customers want to record as much video as possible and access it not just on their television sets but also on other devices such as smart phones, tablets and PCs.”
