Unifique selects Irdeto

May 17, 2016

Irdeto, a specialist in digital platform security, has announced that Unifique Franquias has selected Irdeto Cloaked CA to scale and digitise services across its cable and FTTH networks. With Irdeto Cloaked CA, Unifique is now able to securely deploy a unified solution across their cable and FTTH networks, digitalise their analogue cable operations and deploy TV services through IPTV on their FTTH network.

Following strong growth on the integration of a number of local Brazilian ISPs, Unifique required a software security solution that was both flexible and easy to deploy. Irdeto Cloaked CA, a cardless CA solution, enables both IPTV and DVB-C, and helps Unifique accomplish this goal while also allowing them to offer a single set-top box for all networks. The solution significantly reduces total cost of ownership by eliminating logistical costs that are traditionally associated with physical smart cards and allows Unifique to innovate quicker.

“We are committed to providing our customers with premium service and high-quality content, and to make this possible, we needed a robust solution that provided scalability for our IPTV network,” said Erolf Schotten, COO at Unifique. “We were running a number of independent networks that needed to be harmonised. Irdeto’s Cloaked CA solution allowed us the security robustness we needed and the flexibility to deploy one STB model for all networks, ensuring that we provide our customers with an optimal experience as we continue to grow and innovate.”
