Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago Launches IPTV Service using ADB Set-Top Solution

GENEVA, Switzerland — Advanced Digital Broadcast (SIX:ADBN), a leading supplier of technology to the global digital television industry, announced today that Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) is deploying a variety of ADB set-top boxes as part of a pioneering effort to bring IPTV services to the twin-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago.

TSTT, one of the telecommunications industry’s leading innovators in the Caribbean market, has chosen ADB as one of its key strategic partners, using ADB’s IPTV set-top boxes to address a broad set of needs throughout its subscriber footprint, beginning on the island of Trinidad. TSTT has also contracted ADB services to assist with system integration and ensure a seamless consumer experience. The solution is being deployed in conjunction with Border States Electric, an ADB distribution partner.

“For this rollout, we needed our set-top solution providers to have a strong commitment to quality, the ability to help us differentiate services, and the resources to ensure a trouble-free roll-out,” said Gary Barrow, Executive Vice President Converged Services for TSTT. “Thanks to ADB’s innovation, technical leadership and on-site engineering we were able to quickly and painlessly create an unparalleled consumer experience that is helping us win new subscribers.”

“Our experience working closely with innovative customers like TSTT has played a key role in our success,” said Kathryn Wolfe, SVP, Head of Sales, Americas Region. “We are able to quickly identify issues that can accelerate their market rollout, and ultimately we can use that knowledge to improve our products for the benefit of the entire industry.”
