has been awarded a contract to provide Latens Foundation CAS (FCAS) Content & Revenue Security to Salten Bredband, the Norwegian IPTV operator.
FCAS will protect the Salten Bredband IPTV service, which presently includes 35 IPTV channels and Video on Demand and Program on Demand content services.
"The fact that Latens is no 1. for content security for the Nordic region as well as the rest of Europe, means that the company already understands how we operate and has the infrastructure in place to offer us the support that we need," says Frank Nyrud, System Manager, Salten Bredb�nd. "An additional and important advantage of deploying Latens FCAS is that we can scale to many more subscribers without upgrading our CA system."
Latens will integrate FCAS with Salten Bredband�s existing IPTV system, which includes Kreatel set-top-boxes and a Tandberg Television IPTV headend. The Latens FCAS solution provides Salten Bredband with a simplified but secure CA solution without reducing the future functionality of its Content and Revenue Protection system. Upon deployment, FCAS will secure Salten Bredband's Pay-TV and Video On Demand services, which are already enjoyed by around 3,000 consumers.
"Our support for open standards means that we will find it easier than many vendors to secure Salten Bredband�s existing customer base and IPTV infrastructure," says Andy Mathieson, Director, Latens. "In addition, our FCAS system offers the "no compromise" security at an affordable cost that this customer needs."
