Under the terms of the contract between the two parties, the Kudelski Group company will help roll out a cost-effective end-to-end platform based on the Conax Contego security hub and led by integrator Bold MSS.
The pre-integrated solution, including middleware from Cubiware, will enable Supercanal to expand its existing cable network and transition from analogue to digital. It will also allow the operator to introduce hybrid STB solutions with VOD & other OTT services, including distribution of secure live, on-demand and OTT services across multiscreen devices. Platform implementations will begin this month.
Commenting on the development, Daniel Vega, CTO, Supercanal, said: “Conax has a proven track record as a strong security partner and provides a highly attractive service offering including local support. Conax and Bold MSS are providing Supercanal with a pre-integrated, fast-time-to-market and cost-effective platform that will enable our business to flourish and grow with flexible support for advanced, secure, consumer offerings”.
Rohit Mehra, SVP Americas, Conax, added: “Conax is delighted to be partnering with Bold MSS to deliver a well proven, pre integrated secure content distribution and consumption ecosystem in the LATAM region. Supercanal is truly a forward thinking and aggressive Multi Service Operator in the region who aims to offer outstanding experience to their consumers, based on cutting edge technology solutions. We are truly honoured to be chosen by Supercanal to be their content security provider for their digitisation and OTT strategy”.
