Adelphia Takes Broadbus for VOD

Before it heads off into the cable MSO sunset, Adelphia Communications is taking another long ride with Broadbus Technologies. Broadbus announced Mon. that Adelphia has installed the vendor's DRAM-based B-1 video-on-demand (VOD) servers in an additional six markets passing more than 2 million homes. The markets include: Staunton, VA; West Palm Beach, FL; Loudon, VA/Frederick, MD; Augusta, ME; South Dade, FL; and Canton, GA. As a result of the new deployments, Broadbus said it now supports about one-third of Adelphia's total VOD streams, including about half of the MSO's VOD deployments carried out in the past year. Overall, Broadbus, which has been on a roll lately, boasts that it has deployed its video servers in more than 50 cable systems over the past 18 months. With Comcast Corp., Time Warner Cable, Charter Communications and Rogers Cable also signed up as MSO customers, the vendor said its servers now pass more than 10 million cable homes.
