Indonesia’s PT LinkNet adopts NAGRA content protection technology

PT LinkNet, a leading provider of cable TV and broadband services in Indonesia, has selected Kudelski Group-owned NAGRA to provide it with cardless content protection technology to secure its new hybrid broadcast and Android TV-based OTT service.

“NAGRA was the natural choice when the time came to evolve our platform to a cardless system,” said Desmond Poon, chief product and technology officer, LinkNet. “This transition enables us to seamlessly deliver new services to subscribers, combining the best of our platform and the best of an Android TV OTT service.”

Stephane Le Dreau (pictured), SVP sales & services APAC at NAGRA, added “With NAGRA Protect (the name of the cardless tech), LinkNet is able to benefit from a proven security solution that addresses the new needs of the customer base and extends TV services to any screen, while giving the peace of mind that the platform’s premium content remains secure on any device, including Android TV.”

NAGRA says that NAGRA Protect “provides an unprecedented level of security for a software-based solution. It has the largest certified system-on-chip (SOC) and set-top box partner network, enabling more freedom of choice for service providers when selecting the chip and set-top box that best fits their needs.”
