Today we’re glad to shine the spotlight on our colleagues at Numericable, for taking such a comprehensive step forward in making multi-screen television available to its wide-reaching residential footprint in France.
Specifically, Numericable is deploying our (3G60) Broadband Processing Engine, a high-density CMTS and uBR10k line card used for DOCSIS 3.0, wideband connectivity, as well as several components in our Videoscape TV family – meaning our CDS (Content Delivery System), for adapting multiple content types to different screen sizes; our Media Processor and Transcode Manager, for adaptive bit rate streaming; and our UCS and Nexus family of data center switches.
The plan augments Numericable’s existing work on its “fiber to the basement” initiative, which can offer up to 4 Gbps of capacity over fiber and coax.
As they point out in this video clip, Numericable and France consistently lead the world in video advancements and cutting edge efforts – and this is no exception. View the following brief video highlighting Eric Denoyer, CEO of Numericable, Jerome Yomtov, General Secretary of Numericable, and our own Scott Puopolo, VP of Internet Solutions Business Group.
With its multi-screen emphasis, Numericable consumers will soon enjoy access to video on demand (VOD) as well as linear television, across multiple screens – TVs, PCs, tablets, smart phones.
It’s another great validation of our Videoscape strategy, and perhaps our most comprehensive one yet. In short, we’re big fans of Numericable!
