STOCKHOLM -- Edgeware, the provider of revolutionary server systems for network deployed on-demand TV, today announced a global IPTV cooperation with Ericsson, the world’s leading supplier in telecommunications.

With this agreement, Edgeware is integrating its solid state video-on-demand (VoD) platform with the Ericsson end-to-end IPTV solution and OpenStream® Digital Services Platform to enable operators worldwide to easily deploy advanced on-demand TV services. Edgeware’s network-distributed server architecture allows operators to utilize their existing network, even when bandwidth and quality of service (QoS) are limited, by caching popular content close to the viewers.

“We are proud to be part of the Ericsson IPTV solution. Partnering with an industry leader like Ericsson gives us a strong global reach and together we are able to provide advanced IPTV solutions to a large number of operators around the world,” said Mikael Samuelsson, VP of channel sales at Edgeware.

Edgeware’s industry-leading flash memory-based network server appliances bring a number of additional benefits to operators, such as carrier grade reliability, 99 percent energy savings and the highest stream density on the market – 20 Gbps from a single, half rack depth, 1U box. Since early 2007, the Edgeware solution has been deployed by leading Telco´s and cable MSOs, as well as Web TV and over the top (OTT) service providers.
