CommScope and Kaltura, a leading video cloud provider, announced today that they are partnering to deliver cloud TV offerings to communications service providers and media companies worldwide. The integrated solutions will leverage the power of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide a streamlined cloud platform — from planning to delivery, deployment and implementation, and ongoing growth — for customers launching large-scale cloud TV services.
The global partnership will incorporate Kaltura’s TV content management platform and other cloud solutions into best-of-breed video solutions. CommScope’s Professional Services team will provide consulting, project management, systems integration, and custom software development to implement the solutions in operator networks.
To stay relevant in today’s TV landscape, attract new subscribers, and offer added value to their existing subscriber base, cable operators and telcos aim to become super-aggregators, establishing their service as the ultimate household video hub. To that end, many global operators are looking to migrate from legacy on-premises solutions to more agile and flexible cloud infrastructure, powered by proven technology and delivered by providers with unique expertise in deploying such services. CommScope and Kaltura have teamed up to leverage CommScope’s leadership as a top-tier systems integrator and Kaltura’s specialty deploying its widely adopted TV Platform into legacy TV services. Together, the companies will offer operators a fast and reliable path to delivering the next generation of advanced cloud TV services.
“We are delighted to team up with CommScope, and together enable customers to enjoy the many synergies between our products and services,” said Gideon Gilboa, Executive Vice President of Product, Marketing and Solutions at Kaltura. “As operators around the world look to solidify their place in the new TV landscape, our proven TV Platform powers their TV transformation journey, and enables them to enjoy the best of pay-TV and OTT in a single cloud TV solution.”
