P&T Luxembourg upgrades to IPTV 2.0 thanks to Netgem
P&TLuxembourg is the leading postal and telecommunications services operator in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. With over 100 post offices and shops, call centres for residential customers and professionals and numerous commercial partners, P&T is in close proximity to its customers.
For the next-generation of P&T luxembourg’s IPTV offering, Netgem has provided its middleware and its Netbox N8000 and N5000 set-top boxes.
P&T subscribers have started to receive the new service in October 2011 and experiment a rich and unique TV experience.
The use of Netgem’s nCloud architecture, based on its embedded software and intelligent set-top boxes, gives P&T the flexibility to integrate value added content, including Video On Demand, the popular Catch-up TV service from RTL Luxembourg and other Internet applications, regardless of whether this comes from P&Ts managed IPTV or unmanaged Over-The-Top network.
Subscribers to P&T’s premium package receive a Netbox N8000 MediaCenter PVR, allowing them to seamlessly access a range of more than 200 Live IPTV channels, over-the-top VOD and Catchup TV content, radio and social content from web applications and their personal content from their private home network. Users are able to pause and record content through the STB’s PVR functionality, access their home content from the STB’s Mediacenter and use their smartphone as a remote control. Those customers on P&T’s standard package receive Netgem’s compact IPTV box, also provisioning multi-room services to premium package subscribers thanks to Netgem’s middleware capability to support multistreams offerings.
