ISTANBUL -- AirTies Wireless Networks, a leading supplier of advanced wireless and OTT/IPTV technologies, today announced that it has integrated Netflix with an IPTV service for Danish fibre broadband service provider Waoo! AirTies has developed the first set-top box to allow subscribers to view Netflix’s subscription-based video streaming services alongside IPTV services, including both broadcast/Flow TV and on-demand HD TV.

The Danish fibre-optic network service provider Waoo! chose AirTies to undertake the difficult task of integrating the dual software stacks to allow both services to run on the IPTV set-top box, using a single user interface to seamlessly navigate between the two services. An additional challenge faced by the AirTies team was the need to incorporate both the IPTV multicast software stack and the Netflix unicast stack onto a set-top box with just 512MB of memory. An additional challenge was the difficulty of integrating the Verimatrix DRM for the Waoo! IPTV service with the PlayReady DRM used by Netflix - and still meet the stringent certification requirements set by Netflix to protect the content.

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
