Access and Alcatel-Lucent to demo joint cloud platform

Access and Alcatel-Lucent are to use IBC to demo an innovation developed jointly with Alcatel-Lucent which enables operators to deliver a unified TV experience through the cloud, including content sharing across all devices via a centralised HTML5 remote user interface, according to the pair. 

The proof-of-concept solution is based on the DLNA Premium Video Guidelines and can be extended to any device, including tablets and smartphones, according to the companies.

The IBC demo follows the integration of Access’s NetFront Living Connect DLNA-based media sharing and MediaPilot client solutions with Alcatel-Lucent’s Velocix CDN technology.

Paul Larbey, vice-president and general manager of Alcatel-Lucent’s IP Video business, said: “Our industry leading CDN solution, Velocix, solves the issue of getting content into the home with the highest quality. By combining our content delivery technology with Access’s media sharing solutions, service providers can offer consumers access to content on more devices without the need for complex infrastructure changes. This is crucial given the continued explosion of consumer uptake of multiple devices in the home.”

 

Access will exhibit at IBC on stand 14.101 and Alcatel-Lucent will exhibit on MS42a
