Cyta Hellas chooses ADB for Greek triple-play service

Greek service provider Cyta Hellas, an offshoot of the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (Cyta), is using technology from ADB and Alcatel-Lucent to deliver triple-play services.

Cyta Hellas, whose Cytavision triple-play service was launched last December is delivering an IPTV service based on Alcatel-Lucent’s middleware wit ADB hybrid HD set-top boxes. The operator is also using ADB’s Epicentro-PMP remote management applications to remotely manage home networks and fix problems at customers’ premises.

ADB already provides technology for Cyta’s service offerings in Cyprus.

“Τhe flexibility and affordability of ADB’s feature-packed solutions, is a major component of our comprehensive and differentiated 3play solution with voice, internet and TV packages starting from just €19 a month. Judging by the high level of interest to date, we have hit upon a winning formula,” said Christos Kolitsidas, head of products and services, Cyta Hellas.

“We have delivered digital TV solutions to Cyta in Cyprus for many years so we believe it is a mark of our success that Cyta has extended the partnership to encompass its new triple play operations on mainland Greece. With a strong surge in subscribers, it seems that Cyta Hellas has found a sweet spot in the Greek market for a cost-effective triple-play service,” said Peter Balchin, CEO at ADB.
