Tilgin chosen by larger operator for IPTV launch in Southern Europe

Monday, April 21st, 2008

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Tilgin, a leading provider of customer premises equipment (CPE) solutions for multi-play and next-generation broadband services, today announces an initial order from one of its global partners to assist them in their end-to-end IPTV delivery to a leading tier one operator in Southern Europe.

Tilgin will provide one of the leading global telecom companies and the tier one Southern European operator with Tilgin’s Mood 400 HDTV set-top box (STB) solution for IPTV. This initial order for 1700 units is intended for the operator’s IPTV service soft launch in September this year. With this order Tilgin is an important partner in several significant operators’ ongoing IPTV launches in Europe.

This order is a result of the earlier announced global cooperation agreement with the leading systems integrator for inclusion of the Tilgin offering within the systems integrator’s IPTV end-to-end solutions.

Tilgin’s IPTV offering allows the European leading operator to implement a future proof solution for the initial SD based services to its residential broadband customers, supporting HD services as they are launched and thereby eliminating any cost of replacement.

“We are happy to be part of launching IPTV for this tier one Southern European operator”, says Ola Berglund CEO Tilgin. “We look forward to helping the operator grow their IPTV offering to something much more than just a television service, integrating communications and multi-device media sharing into their expanded portfolio of compelling new multimedia services.”
