Vodafone Netherlands has deployed Edgeware´s Distributed Video Delivery Networks (D-VDN) Solution to support Vodafone’s roll out of its Thuis service to its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) customers in the Netherlands, Edgeware says.

Vodafone launched the Thuis service following its acquisition of Dutch FTTH provider Wiericke last year. The service was deployed within less than six months and offers three triple-play packages that include high-speed Internet (50, 100, or 500 Mbps), voice, and video, including video on demand.

The D-VDN family supports IP video services through the creation of consolidated caching, recording, and delivery capabilities that enable efficient network recording for on-demand TV services such as catch-up TV and cloud DVR, Edgeware says. The D-VDN line comprises a pair of product classes: Orbit Delivery Servers and the Convoy Management Software platform.

"Edgeware's highly scalable D-VDN Solution enabled us to rapidly deploy advanced video services over our high-speed fiber network," confirmed Ruud van den Oosterkamp, IPTV project lead at Vodafone Netherlands.

"We are excited to be part of Vodafone's innovative multi-service delivery platform which we see as one of the first examples of an emerging trend with mobile operators moving into the video delivery space," said Joachim Roos, CEO and founder of Edgeware. "With our unified video delivery solution we are well positioned to provide the scalability and quality of experience needed for mobile communication providers like Vodafone to deploy successful next-generation video services over converged networks."
