Hrvatski Telekom, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom (DT) and the largest operator in Croatia has implemented Cisco's 'industry's first Reference Design Kit (RDK)-based IPTV' system to enable its subscribers to access content and services anywhere, on any device, delivered from the cloud. The new service was implemented using Cisco Videoscape™, deployed as a combination of data center-based equipment and Videoscape Cloud Services SaaS. 

According to Cisco, the pilot project which only took 50 days to complete from conception to deployment enables service providers to deploy new services quickly by combining traditional, private clouds and SaaS capabilities. Cisco said that the new IPTV service which was built using Cisco Cloud Fusion, was tested and transferred to Hrvatski Telekom in a remarkably short timeframe. It also said that Hrvatski Telekom's new IPTV service is based on the DT's TeraStream network, a software-defined networking (SDN) concept that enables simpler implementation and integration of advanced services delivered from the cloud, including traditional telco services such as voice, IPTV and Internet access.

"Mario Gojčeta, Head of TV Platforms Development and Integration Work Unit, Hrvatski Telekom:"The objective of the TeraStream network is to enable agile service innovation, and this project is the perfect example of that. From conception to completion, we were able to launch our pilot service in 50 days – which would have been impossible with traditional solutions. The nature of Videoscape Cloud meant that the components existed, the expertise and understanding was there; it was just a case of making it work for us, and we're delighted with the result."

Yves Padrines, Vice President, Service Provider Video, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia, Cisco: "The speed and efficiency of this deployment are testament to the benefits of a software-driven, cloud-powered networking approach. We are delighted to have been able to work with such telecoms innovators  to achieve a number of firsts for the service, and we look forward to our continued work with Hrvatski Telekom to prove the capabilities of Cloud."
