Altimedia Selected as a Middleware Provider for Turk Telekom in Turkey
Altimedia was selected as a set-top box software platform provider and TV application developer for Turk Telekom, Turkey’s largest telecommunications operator as well as the second-largest Pay-TV operator.
Turk Telekom had selected the ZTE consortium for a project to build a new IPTV eco-system to enhance its service experience and flexible expansion and the integrated terminal platform includes upgrades on 1 million legacy set-top boxes installed in the field, including interworking with the newly built ZTE system. The project aims to be completed in 2021 according to Turk Telecom’s business plan, including the STB middleware migration and a new TV service application development.
“Needs of replacements or upgrades from the first-generation digital broadcasting platforms built more than a decade ago are emerging. We plan to continuously promote Altimedia’s proven solutions and migration experiences to the market.” said Brian Koo, head of the European Business of Altimedia. “And for Turk Telekom, we expect this new project would be another promising milestone on top of the previous STB middleware project successfully completed in 2019 with Turk Telekom Group.”
As an end-to-end solution provider for multimedia services, Altimedia is securing source technology for device SW platform, user experience (UX), media security, headend, and voice-assisted AI solutions. Altimedia has also carried out several device platform migration projects globally and more than 50 million receivers around the world are equipped with its software platforms and services for now.
