Ericsson will be showcasing its latest TV video solutions at CABSAT 2015, which takes place from March 10-12th in Dubai. Over 12,000 attendees from more than 60 countries will have the chance to see Ericsson demonstrate how its innovative services and solutions address the demand for advanced television experiences and video accessibility at any time, any place and on any device.

Content owners, TV service providers and broadcasters gathering at CABSAT 2015 are facing a range of challenges when it comes to meeting the high expectations of consumers. Visitors to stand #E4-40 at the event will be able to see how Ericsson is drawing on its unique place at the convergence of the media and IP worlds to drive the future of TV through innovative solutions, services and deep industry knowledge.
