Mexican triple-play operator, Totalplay has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) platform to align with its network upgrade roadmap, which includes securing its On Demand service and supporting its IPTV and 4K/HEVC expansion plans.
Totalplay, a Grupo Salinas company that provides the most innovative triple-play service through the fastest network of direct-to-home fiber optics, has already announced execution of aggressive expansion plans for its over-the-top (OTT) and IPTV platforms throughout Mexico. The Operator offers more than 260 channels on-demand and now Gamefly, a new video game streaming service with over 30 video games that supports most major controls.
Totalplay has also expanded its IPTV platform to reach a broader area for its subscribers to access premium content over any mobile or fixed device via a new cloud-based, IP-centric Anytime Tv service. The operator has also announced a 4K, HEVC-compliant TV service available on a new ultra HD (UHD) set-top box, a first in Latin America.
According to Verimatrix, the VCAS architecture provides the security infrastructure, tools and support for Totalplay's network plans. It combines a number of network-specific security solutions built on a common platform. Totalplay has deployed VCAS for Internet TV, which provides a complete multi-screen security solution for OTT services over networks implementing the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol, including live (broadcast) and on-demand delivery. The operator has also deployed VCAS for IPTV for better flexibility in securing its expanded IPTV network. Future plans include upgrading to VCAS Ultra to meet the security requirements to deliver UHD content.
