NAGRA MediaAccess has been selected by Shandong Cable, the cable television provider for the Shandong Province of China and one the world’s largest cable operators. This new win reinforces the company’s growing footprint in the region and marks an important milestone for NAGRA as the first large-scale deployment in China of the company’s device-embedded conditional access solution.
“NAGRA’s conditional access solutions provide the flexibility and robustness we require for deploying and expanding our new pay-TV services across the Shandong Province,” said Liu Baoju, Shandong Cable Chairman. “Thanks to NAGRA, we can extend our reach and have more control over our network while safeguarding our investment and ensuring our platform is ready to meet the growing consumer demand for premium content.”
“Cable operators in China – especially those consolidating networks at provincial level – have growing incentives to ensure both the security and scalability of their networks,” said André Kudelski, Chairman and CEO of the Kudelski Group. “A proven track record in both aspects is fundamental to ensure large scale deployment efficiency and stability – and we are honoured that Shandong Cable is entrusting that task to us. We look forward to contributing to their success with solutions that effectively manage the risks associated with distributing media across such a large network.”
