“Securing content distribution – a marriage of technologies and devices”

In this session we will take a close look at the relationships between content distribution, security solutions and platform consumer devices. It’s a serious business!

Date/Time: October 31st, 12:00 – 12:15

Hans Kwaaitaal has 20 plus years of telecoms and broadcast experience, both driving company EMEA and Asia Pacific activities and more recently, developing global strategic partner relations. With a background in operator and client device relations, he has extensive knowledge of Set-top-box and client device security and plays a key role in advising operators, content and client device providers.

“It is important to support a range of client device partners to develop devices with an additional level of security. Through this type of open consumer device policy we can then provide guidance for pay-TV operators and Telcos in finding consumer devices and security solutions that best suit their operation based on a combination of factors – security, quality, functionality and price,” confirms Hans Kwaaitaal, VP Strategic Partner Relations.

“This approach means operators can be absolutely sure of making an informed decision. Good security enables a strong marriage of technologies, content and devices brought together to sustain the pay-TV ecosystem – quite brilliant from a technology perspective.”
