IENTC Telecomunicaciones Selects VectorMax Corporation to Deliver IP Live Linear with SVOD to Support Growth in Mexico

Share

IENTC Telecomunicaciones, an internet and television service provider operating in the Mexican market, today announced it is launching VectorMax’s turn-key IPTV Platform as the software to support its new television product. Serving the market for more than 10 years, IENTC Telecomunicaciones’ new service augmenting its consumer offering reflects the growing shift from broadcast television to IP delivery of live linear TV.

This marks the first commercial deployment of an all software solution enabling operators to transition from broadcast to online delivery of live linear television without having to upgrade their network architecture. The software leverages $73M of R&D from teams out of MIT, IBM Labs, Bell Labs, DARPA and MPEG related projects to deliver multicast live linear as a turn-key, fully integrated, multicast software platform for cable operators, telcos, and high-speed access providers.

“Operators need to transition and support their entertainment experiences to remain relevant and competitive,” said Peter von Schlossberg, VectorMax’s President Global Product. “Our operators are searching for solutions to deliver a live linear consumer experience side-by-side with SVOD offerings from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Google, etc. VectorMax developed a unique software solution that capitalizes on existing infrastructure and networks to deliver high-quality live linear broadcast & other IP services.

“Transitioning to online delivery of live linear can be daunting, but VectorMax’s software platform allowed us to quickly see our consumer offering ingested and delivered in multicast by the VectorMax software. Our own branded Streaming Media Player apps on Amazon FireTV, Roku, Android STBs, Smart TVs and iOS were live within weeks. VectorMax’s ‘show-me’ sales strategy enabled us to easily determine they were the best fit to support the growing demands of our customers,” said Carlos Arguimbau, CEO of IENTC.

VectorMax’s ability to execute technological and marketing solutions with minimal disruption to our existing operations assured us that they were an important resource to navigate new market dynamics. The end product is a win-win for both IENTC and our customers,” said Arguimbau.

IENTC’s new +TV service is bolstered by a recent study from Hub Entertainment Research. The study found that the average number of television services accessed online per viewer in the US in the past 24 months reflected a rise of over 50%. That number is expected to trend globally. IENTC is also tracking the Hub findings reflecting pay-TV subscribers who have used an operator provided set-top box to watch streaming services tend to keep using it; 58% do so to access Netflix, 61% for Amazon, and 57% for Hulu.

“These findings are a key validation of providers’ efforts to aggregate streaming services as another way to create value in the set-top box and reduce cord-cutting”, said von Schlossberg.“VectorMax deployed our Platform in December which is now being expanded to a wider area of IENTC’s footprint in Mexico. Strategically, we are positioned to help cable companies and telecoms address this shift and to market new services as easily as flicking on a switch. The VectorMax Platform is slated for a roll-out to additional customers starting Q3 2020”.
