Siti & DishTV opt for Conax conditional access

MUMBAI: The Essel group has been using Conax’s tech for sometime now for its Siti Network (earlier known as Siti Cable). Now the group has extended that partnership for another product for both Siti Network and DTH operator Dish TV India. This time it is for the cardless set top boxes that the two are slated to roll out.

Based on the flagship Conax ContegoTM security hub, the Conax Cardless conditional access (CA) technology will be a key and essential security component integrated in the chipsets, which will enable use of multiple layers of content protection in the new Dish TV India and SITI Networks cardless STBs.

Conax Cardless technology employs a unique combination of hardware security and software security providing a hardware root of trust for the best level of protection. The secure software is executed within a purpose-built hardware protected environment (Secure Execution Environment) within the chipset.

The Conax Cardless technology provides seamless co-existence with legacy smart card population, all based on a single, unified back-end, meaning in any operation only one back-end is necessary
“With the growing competitive landscape in the operator segment, and the need for access to costly premium content and at the same time keeping operational costs low, it is essential to employ flexible solutions that also offer a high level of security as we look to continue to grow our business”, says Dish TV India managing director Jawahar Goel. “Conax has been a long term partner and we believe their strong security solutions will continue to provide an important layer of security to our growing pay-TV business already servicing over 13 million subscribers.”

“As we continue to advance our footprint in the Indian cable TV market and venture into digitization in phase 3 and phase 4 markets it is essential that new and cost-effective security solutions are available to us. SITI Networks is pleased to further its existing relationship with Conax and implement the Conax cardless technology going forward in our markets,” says Siti Networks CEO & executive director V.D. Wadhwa.

“Conax’ long term relationship and partnership with the Essel group reaches a new milestone today as we look to further strengthen both the Dish TV and SITI Networks platforms and help expand its customer base with a new high security, flexible and revolutionary solution,” says Conax president & CEO Morten Solbakken. “With this unique concept they are well positioned to capture additional new market share and protect the premium content demanded by savvy consumers. We are honored to work together with Essel Group in the next step of their journey.”
