Jazztel deploys Harmonic-based headend

Spanish telecommunications service provider Jazztel has implemented a Harmonic-based digital headend, including the DiviCom Electra 5000 MPEG-4 AVC H.264 encoder, for its IP-based Jazztelia TV service.

Initiated in March, the countrywide roll-out includes standard-definition broadcast television channels delivered via Jazztel's ADSL2+ network. Founded in 1998, Jazztel now operates a comprehensive network of DSLAMs, overlaying an area encompassing nearly 60 percent of Spain's lines, which is connected to an extensive fiber network.

As the demand for more services continues to accelerate, IPTV operators must find ways to maximize the efficiency of their networks. An IP-centric network enables telco operators like Jazztel to provision highly personalized, interactive TV services. Harmonic's DiviCom Electra 5000 multi-service encoders, which are at the core of the Jazztel service, include a native IP interface and provide MPEG-4 AVC video quality at low bit rates, facilitating the delivery of future value-added capabilities.
