Russian telco VimpelCom has selected Motorlola Mobility to supply new set-top boxes for its Beeline IPTV customers.
Motorola said the VIP2202 and VIP2262 set-tops allow operators to expand their subscriber base and grow ARPU by offering consumers rich home entertainment experiences such as personal video recording (with the VIP2262 model), time shifting, electronic programming guides and HD content. The VIP2262 comes with multi-room functionality and a built in hard disc.
“Today’s announcement reinforces the synergies between Motorola and VimpelCom and reflects Motorola’s strong commitment and focus in Russia,” said Steve McCaffery, vice-president and general manager, home business, Motorola Mobility: “We’ve designed the VIP22n2 series of set-tops with customers like Beeline in mind; young, dynamic and eager to offer customers the most up-to-date services to its customers. Using our IP set-tops, VimpelCom can offer new services that will differentiate it in the market and attract new subscribers.”
