Industria, Ireland’s leading broadband solution provider has Optibase's MGW 5100 IP platform in a video head-end solution for Dublin based Magnet Networks.
The video head-end solution, which will enable triple play services (voice over IP, fast Internet and video over telephone lines), will deliver tens of live video channels over a fibre network designed to reach subscribers in multi-dwelling units.
