North Dakota telco chooses Optibase's MPEG-4 H.264 IPTV solution

Optibase, a provider of digital video solutions, has announced that North Dakota Telephone Company (NDTC) has selected Optibase’s carrier-grade IPTV streaming platform, MGW 5100, to deliver local TV channels to its subscribers. CC&I Engineering, a telecommunications engineering and consulting group, recommended Optibase as headend provider for the deployment of a multichannel digital AV service to homes and residencies in Devils Lake, ND.

NDTC serves approximately 18,000 lines in 25 exchanges in North Dakota. Along with Polar Communications (Langdon, ND) and United Telephone Mutual Aid (Langdon, ND), NDTC is an equity partner in Dakota Video Network (DVN), an IP video headend located in Park River. NDTC plans to locally augment AV services available from DVN with Optibase’s headend solution to produce H.264, MPEG-4 Part 10 AV content. Services will be distributed over two platforms, ADSL 2+ and active FTTP networks. Channels will be received and processed in NDTC’s Optibase headend to be aggregated with 80 TV channels of content transported from Park River via Ethernet over SONET OC-48 for local distribution to NDTC customers.
