Telefonica, Microsoft Build Global Video Platform (IPTV+OTT)

Telefonica, Microsoft Build Global Video Platform (IPTV+OTT) | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

Telefónica has teamed up with Microsoft Corp. to develop what it calls its Global Video Platform (GVP) for the delivery of all IPTV and OTT video content to its 300 million-plus customers in Europe and Latin America.

 

This move is noteworthy for two reasons :

- First, Telefónica has historically had multiple video delivery systems, each dedicated to particular markets, media and customer types. Now it has started the move towards having a single, unified system that will deliver third-party content (OTT) as well as managed video (IPTV) to any type of device across any type of network.

- Second, it confirms Microsoft as the premium telco video delivery technology partner. Telefónica, one of the first major operators to launch commercial IPTV services, began with an in-house developed IPTV platform, which it then handed over for further development to Alcatel-Lucent. Now Microsoft is the preferred partner and that decision, along with Telefónica's video delivery strategy, will be noted by other major CSPs everywhere.
