Telemach to launch new services with Cisco upgrade

Infrastructure provider Cisco Systems is to provide its Medianet technology platform to Slovenian cable operator Telemach to support the latter’s launch of HDTV, video-on-demand, DVR and interactive services.

Telemach, backed by private-equity group Mid Europa Partners, which also controls Serbian operator SBB, plans to launch HD services in November. The operator will also use Cisco’s platform to deliver interactive services including games, news and weather information services.

Cisco announced that it was supplying the Medianet platform to SBB earlier this year.
