HONG KONG — Asia’s leading IP solutions provider Broadband Network Systems (BNS) has been appointed by Indonesian telecommunications provider PT. Multi Kontrol Nusantara (MKN), a subsidiary company of Bakrie Group, to design and procure a turnkey HD & SD IPTV service platform.
BNS’s IPTV Service Platform design will enable MKN to deliver high and standard definition video services, including multicast, VOD, Network PVR, Time-Shift-TV, eShopping, games and others.
Built on a core fibre backbone, metro ethernet and various broadband access network technologies, the network’s infrastructure will enable cost effective and highly reliable delivery of multimedia services to residential, office buildings and hotels.
Central to BNS’s IPTV solution is the design of an IP-centric IPTV head end that will enable MNK to seamlessly and cost-effectively migrate to future generation IP video systems.
BNS’s vendor agnostic approach will provide MNK with best-of-breed equipment from BNS’s global partners to cover all major IPTV components of the platform, including video encoder, ingestion system, streaming server, content security, middleware and IP Set-Top-Box.
Through its Content 360 business division, BNS will also provide a content strategy and roadmap that will enable MKN to differentiate its service with unique content that is specifically relevant to the Indonesian market.
The service is set to be launched in the Rasuna area in Jakarta by the end of 2008 before being rolled out nationally within three years.
