Espial announces $1.5mn initial order

November 8, 2007 – Espial has announced that “one of the largest” providers of triple play services in Europe, with over 1.5mn subscribers, has placed an initial order of approximately $1.5mn for Espial’s Evo IPTV Service Platform. The contract was reportedly awarded as part of a larger turn-key contract through a channel partner. The service to be deployed will be a hybrid cable-IPTV service, and is reportedly scheduled for launch next year. The operator has carried out six months of testing, verification and planning. Espial reported that the Evo IPTV platform was chosen based on the operator’s requirements for a highly customisable user interface, a modular and open middleware architecture that allows integration with the existing ecosystem, and the ability to support such standards as DVB-C, hybrid IPTV-cable EPG data transmission and EuroDOCSIS compatible modems. “We would have been committed from the beginning to building an interactive services platform that would adopt the rules of the Internet age without sacrificing performance, open standards, scalability, or cost – all mandatory requirements for operators looking for a next-generation IPTV service platform,” said Jaison Dolvane, President and CEO of Espial. “This contract award demonstrates the strength and maturity of our Evo IPTV Service Platform and growing applications suite.” Espial reports that it has licensed over 1.3mn units of its Evo IPTV software to operators around the world.
