Mexico's Cablemas selects Conax conditional access solution

MUMBAI: Cablemas, the Mexican cable-TV operator, is optimising its digitisation with the Conax content-security platform.

The new solution is aimed at improving quality and functionality by including redundancy, 24/7 and Evolution Digital STBs.

Cablemas provides voice, video and data (triple play) services for close to one million subscribers in Mexico. 
Through the new platform, customers will benefit from higher quality digital-TV service and a wide range of TV-package options. Digitisation of the cable-TV service will strengthen its complete “triple play" offering with the full advantages of a digital environment.

Meanwhile, Evolution Digital is supplying 200,000 SD and HD STBs, also known as digital terminal adapters (DTAs) to Cablemas.

Said Cablemas Telecomunicaciones MD Carlos Alvarez said, "We are very satisfied with our partnership with Conax, our content-security partner, for the deployment of the Cablemas digital platform. We are confident that our combined choice of Conax for security and Evolution Digital for DTAs, will give Cablemas the necessary added value to offer the optimal level of security, quality and functionality needed in such a competitive market as Mexico."
The new solution features added-value improvements to the current analogue content packages for Cablemás customers.

"Adding Cablemas to our customer portfolio is a significant achievement for Conax in Mexico and the entire North American market," said Conax VP for North America Rohit Mehra. “Conax offers the market an open platform with its Digital Video Broadcasting Conditional Access (DVB CA) solution, allowing operators to choose their STB providers from an extensive list, according to their platform needs."

"Conax and Evolution provide a complete solution that includes the best Conditional Access and the very latest STB features, which meet Cablemas‘ stringent technical and commercial requirements," added Evolution Digital president Brent Smith. “Both Conax and Evolution bring years of experience in customising solutions for operators on a standardised open platform.”

Meanwhile, in Mexico, Conax has joined forces with iexpertus, a business-development consulting group. With the support of iexpertus, Conax plans to open a sales and support office to provide streamlined service to the Mexican market.
