MBO Video & 180SQUARED Unveil IPTV Managed Cloud Service

11/04/2009
MBOi (Interactive), a video solution provided by MBO Video LLC, and 180SQUARED unveiled an IPTV Managed Cloud Service called Cirrus Managed Cloud Solutions. The Cirrus solution is built with 180SQUARED's v.Unison solution set, which enables a shared installation of an IPTV Middleware platform among multiple entities, while maintaining a secure, autonomous environment for each individual entity's back-end systems and customized offering.
 
The Cirrus Managed Cloud Solution, based on Microsoft Mediaroom, gives providers immediate access to applications designed to differentiate their IPTV service including onscreen Caller ID (VoIP and TDM compatibility), remote PVR scheduling, Whole Home PVR, and other customer applications. In addition to these rich subscriber experiences, the Cirrus solution provides ongoing maintenance support to the installation and subscribing entities. Ultimately, the MBOi solution allows service providers the opportunity to access this shared installation to reduce the CAPEX and OPEX necessary for entry into the market.
 
v.Unison is a solution set composed of 180SQUARED'S v.Orchestra products and Quantum Site Technology and includes:
  • v.Maestro IPTV Middleware Integration & Management Platform that provides the critical entry point into a complex IPTV Middleware implementation in order to manage, integrate, and police multiple, disparate B/OSS systems and 3rd party applications
  • v.Harmonizer Device Provisioning Module that allows for multiple methods of Set-Top Box (STB) device activation and provisioning.
  • v.Harmonizer Billing Adapter Module that enables the required extraction and auditing of billing events from the IPTV Middleware to the billing systems in the formats that the systems require.
  • Quantum Site Technology, which segregates data at a domain level (subscribers, devices, channel maps, and users) and ensures that while multiple entities share the IPTV Middleware installation, they autonomously manage their own environment for their back-end billing and operational systems integration and management, and are empowered to offer their own branded experiences and unique offerings.

v.Unison, with its v.Maestro platform, easily integrates into a service provider's network and back-end systems. For example, MBO Video affiliates, Cimarron Telephone, Cim-Tel Cable and Pottawatomie Telephone use MACC's Customer Master Software for customer care and end-user billing. MACC easily developed an interface between Customer Master and the v.Maestro Integration and Management platform to auto-provision IPTV customers in Microsoft Mediaroom.
