Vodafone has deployed the NAGRA Security Services Platform (SSP) to secure its multi-network TV service, Vodafone TV (VTV), across several countries including Italy, Greece, Spain and New Zealand, with more European and East European countries deployments to follow.

Deployed as a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, the NAGRA Security Services Platform enables Vodafone to secure multiple network types – including IPTV, hybrid broadcast and OTT – using a single content protection platform. The NAGRA SSP provides Vodafone with the NAGRA Connect client for converged CAS/DRM content protection, as well as the OpenTV Player to extend the viewing experience securely to portable devices.

NAGRA said that SSP is a single suite of solutions to address every content protection need. It is also fully modular, providing a seamless and unique environment for managing live/on demand on IPTV, hybrid broadcast, and multi-DRM OTT environments, allowing operators such as Vodafone to manage devices, subscribers, linear TV and on demand products from a single system. It can be delivered to operators as a SaaS model – as is the case with Vodafone – allowing an operator to run as a tenant on a single system, or deployed in a private cloud infrastructure.

Above and beyond pure content protection the NAGRA SSP is also offering a broad range of additional security extensions, such as device authentication for open devices and secure session management.

Nuno Sanches, Head of Product Development, Vodafone
The NAGRA Security Services Platform and its cloud-based model have helped us achieve that, enabling fast-time-to-market of the VTV service.

Thierry Legrand, SVP Sales EMEA, NAGRA
Advanced multi-network service providers like Vodafone are increasingly looking to rationalize their first-generation architectures by selecting a scalable, modular, cloud-based solution to unify all aspects of their content protection needs.
