Minerva and Ecosystem Partners to Demonstrate Cloud Ready Multitenant Pay TV Solution

  • Minerva’s platform, combined with pre-certified eco-system components, allows multiple PayTV operators to share video and services management infrastructure while keeping full control over service delivery, branding and pricing

LAS VEGAS, NV — Minerva Networks, Inc. and selected eco-system partners will demonstrate at the NAB show in Las Vegas how multiple operators with a variety of access networks can deliver a broad range of compelling pay TV services while sharing video and service management infrastructure.

The Minerva 10 platform’s unique distributed architecture enables flexible and efficient deployment models featuring a shared cloud-based back-office and edge nodes located in proximity of each operator’s access network. In a typical deployment scenario, larger operators would host and operate the shared back-office, achieving scale for their investments while giving smaller operators a lower entry price point and a pay-as-you-go cost model.

“We are extremely excited to showcase, along with our partners, how the Minerva 10 platform meets the needs of operators looking for the most efficient way to upgrade their legacy systems,” said Jean-Georges Fritsch, CTO of Minerva Networks. “The solution we will demonstrate in Las Vegas is ideally suited for leading operators to offer next-generation hosted and managed pay TV services to smaller service providers.”

At NAB, a single cloud-based Minerva 10 back-office connected to a local Minerva Edge node will power several different live demonstrations in the exhibit hall. Learn more from our eco-systems partners at the following locations:
