Telefónica Spain deploys Harmonic VOS360 for Movistar+

Telefónica Spain has announced a partnership with Harmonic to deploy its VOS360 cloud streaming platform.

Deployed for Movistar+, VOS360 provides the streamer with reliable disaster recovery by replicating Telefónica Spain’s infrastructure in the cloud. 

Harmonic said that an advanced DevOps team serves to ensure that services are always available for subscribers and that the VOS360 SaaS also provides rapid scaling.

Eugenio Lojo, head of transmission and conditional access, Telefónica, said: “Viewers today expect flawless video streaming. To ensure solid service continuity, we needed a reliable, cost-effective and flexible solution. Rather than recreating our physical infrastructure at a backup location, we successfully replicated the configuration on the cloud using Harmonic’s VOS360 platform. This redundant service is not only cost-saving, it’s also flexible and ensures our ability to test new channels and deliver short-term events as our video streaming service evolves.”

Shahar Bar, senior vice president, video products and corporate development, at Harmonic, said: “Traditionally, disaster recovery systems have been inflexible and costly to replicate. But Harmonic is transforming that notion. Our VOS360 platform’s cloud-based recovery service can be activated in minutes, which is a testament to the speed and elasticity that our recovery-in-the-cloud service provides.”
