CHALLENGE: Post Luxembourg needed to launch a wide range of TV channels in a cost effective way with market leading TV features expected by consumers across multiple devices. The solution needed to support both, a direct to consumer TV service and enable Post to sell the platform to other Telcos.
SOLUTION: Netgem and Post have built a Cloud TV platform that delivers a Telco grade TV service for Post subscribers. The TV service leverages the large network investments made by Post by utilising a cloud based model and the high speed Fibre networks installed in Luxembourg. The Post Service is a cloud based offering which enables more content and a suite of innovative network based capabilities like PVR time-shifting functionality and Catch-up services. The TV service works across multiple screens including smartphone and tablet. The cloud deployment will also allow Netgem to quickly and efficiently add more TV features and more TV content. The solution also provides a hosted platform for B2B customers. Post is able to offer both, French and German channels to other Telcos in the marketplace.
BENEFITS: The incumbent operator Post benefited from a rapid deployment of new channels with a cost-efficient content delivery infrastructure with content stored in the cloud and no local hard-drive required in the Set Top Box. The cloud based model reduces the set top box cost which allows a really compelling offer in the market. This solution approach impacts customer acquisition, loyalty and retention. Post has invested in large network capacity and links in order to enable growth as a B2B platform for other Telcos around the world. This helps Post maintain their dominant position and marketshare of broadband in Luxembourg.
