OSLO, Norway -- March 27, 2012 -- The SCTE (Society for Broadband Professionals) has confirmed that Bridge Technologies' new microC(TM) is the joint winner of the Best CPE Solution category in its 2012 Awards for Technological Innovation. The winners were announced at the SCTE's annual Gala Dinner on Saturday, March 17 at Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire.
microC is the software component of Bridge Technologies' new microAnalytics(TM) system for OTT monitoring that encompasses microVB(TM) miniaturized hardware probes, central server/controllers, and the microC embedded software clients for monitoring individual viewing devices including smartphones, tablets, residential gateways, STBs, or connected TVs.
The microC architecture allows operators to easily integrate the software library with their own delivery infrastructure and to quickly add support for new viewing devices as they are developed.
"The recognition of microC and the microAnalytics system by the SCTE so soon after its launch is a very welcome endorsement from a key arbiter of excellence in the broadband and telecommuniations industry," said Simen Frostad, chairman of Bridge Technologies.
