Proximus Luxembourg selects Verimatrix VCAS

April 30, 2021

Verimatrix, a specialist in powering the modern connected world, has announced that Proximus Luxembourg has deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS).

Founded by Belgian parent company Proximus Group in 2019, Proximus Luxembourg was created following the merger of Tango and Telindus, two of Belgium’s leading telecoms. In an effort to establish an entirely independent, competitive network infrastructure for content delivery, Proximus turned to the Verimatrix’s VCAS solution that arms the company with centralised and scalable rights management for its vast multi-screen offerings.  Proximus created their own on-prem infrastructure, designing a middleware system in conjunction with Verimatrix encryption tools. Before, Proximus Luxembourg utilised the Proximus Belgium TV infrastructure without the options of replay, record program,es or have TV Everywhere (mobile TV) – hampering options for growth. The transition relied on the seamless integration of Verimatrix technology, which helped Proximus take on other regional telecom competitors and reach number two in TV services in the country.

“Verimatrix helped us in the best way possible through this important transition,” said Nuno Lopes, solutions architect at Proximus Luxembourg. “Swiftly and expertly migrating our existing client base was a primary goal of ours throughout this process. Without Verimatrix encryption tools, we wouldn’t have the same level of confidence that we currently exhibit in our network infrastructure. Verimatrix’s systems have been flawless since the beginning.”

“We’re pleased to provide the confidence that companies such as Proximus need as they grow both their offerings as well as their customer base,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, Chief Operating Officer at Verimatrix. “Our customers value Verimatrix’s emphasis on scalability, ease of integration and cost-effectiveness – it’s why so many organisations repeatedly look to Verimatrix as a trusted partner during times of pivotal transformation for their business.”
