Cisco has announced that Romtelecom, the largest telecommunications company in Romania, has selected Videoscape to provide an end-to-end solution for the delivery of its content and services to additional subscribers over cable, complementing its satellite service.
The new service will utilise Romtelecom’s existing satellite headend, enabling the operator to capitalise on its existing investment whilst expanding its operations.
Ciprian State, TV product development manager, Romtelecom and COSMOTE Romania, commented: “With the launch of this cable platform enhancement we are expanding our footprint to areas that were previously unable to access our services. With Videoscape we are able to do so with little impact on our operating expense, but with the ability to offer the same quality of experience irrespective of the delivery mechanism.”
Yves Padrines, vice president Service Provider Video, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia, Cisco added: “As a longstanding customer, we’re delighted to be working with Romtelecom on an initiative that has the potential to grow their business substantially. We look forward to our continued work together.”
