MUMBAI: Optibase Ltd. and its partner Time Broadband Services Pvt Ltd, broadband content services operator, are expanding their IPTV solution to India's state-owned telecom service provider, Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL).

MTNL recently launched IPTV services through Time Broadband, utilising Optibase's IPTV MGW 5100 platforms for its digital IPTV head-end operation at the company’s network operating centre.

Time Broadband is all set to deploy IPTV services on both TV and PC delivery through network and internet service providers across India.

Time Broadband Services managing director Sujata Dev said, “During the initial deployment, Optibase demonstrated their extensive IPTV know-how relating to H.264 AVC. We decided to select the Optibase MGW 5100 integrated digital head ends for the full-scale commercial launch. We are confident that this productive relationship with the high level of commitment from Optibase will continue into the future with our plans for further growth of our IPTV services in prominent locations of the Indian market through multiple telecom operator relationships.”

Optibase CFO Danny Lustiger added, “We are delighted with the success of our first installation of Time Broadband at MTNL Delhi network and look forward to a long-term collaboration with our globally eminent CDN partners, driving the large scale deployment of IPTV in India. Optibase combines high quality products with world-class services, providing MTNL with a carrier-grade IPTV solution required for the expansion of triple-play services in the Delhi metropolitan high growth potential market.”
