Hungary Telecoms Operator Deploys Harmonic's EyeQ For IPTV Service

News Image
Hungary telecoms operator Magyar Telekom has deployed Harmonic's EyeQ™ content-aware encoding solution for its IPTV service.

The operator is now able to deliver additional HD channels and realise a 30 percent bandwidth saving on the aggregated constant bit rate (CBR) core network, without investing in additional network infrastructure.

"When looking for a bandwidth optimisation solution for our DOCSIS and ADSL IPTV platforms, the key requirements were high video quality, outstanding reliability and standards compliancy," said Ferenc Szűcs, TV network senior advisor at Magyar Telekom.

"Harmonic's EyeQ solution not only meets all our requirements today but is also an investment into the future since it can be extended to other delivery platforms and cost-effectively deployed anywhere aggregated video bandwidth is limited by network capacity."

The EyeQ encoded stream is fully H.264 compliant, ensuring no changes to today's ecosystem, whether it's based on SaaS, appliances, virtual machines or native-cloud infrastructure. By reducing the bit rate required for high-quality video delivery, the EyeQ solution delivers substantial opex and capex savings to the operator. Magyar Telekom also employed advanced statistical multiplexing technology from Harmonic, which aggregates the variable bit rate (VBR) encoded channels into a CBR core network to optimise its bandwidth.  

"HD video is in high demand, and with the Harmonic EyeQ solution, Magyar Telekom is able to satisfy the consumer requirement for a high-quality viewing experience in a capex-friendly way," said Ian Graham, senior vice president of sales, EMEA and LATAM, at Harmonic. "The operator's ability to deliver more HD services significantly improves their position within the marketplace, maximizing revenue."

Harmonic will showcase its latest innovations in bandwidth optimisation at ANGA COM, 12-14 June, in Cologne, Germany, at booth 7/G20.
