Aliant has begun using CopperGate
’s CopperStream HomePNA 3.1 chipset integrated into set-top boxes and other Ethernet-over-Coax products for deployment of its new IPTV service offering. Aliant is the leading IPTV service provider in Atlantic Canada.
Aliant TV was launched in June 2005 and is now available in Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia; Moncton, New Brunswick; and St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. Aliant TV delivers digital picture and sound quality and features over 200 fully digital television channels and over 170 digital audio services, pay-per-view and an easy-to-use electronic (on-screen) program guide.
Aliant is an early leader in the rapidly building shift of telcos to offering triple play services,” said William Simmelink, CopperGate President. “We are pleased to see Aliant join other leading telcos around the world, who are specifying HomePNA 3.1 as their technology platform of choice for home deployments.”
