KPN relies on Siemens for Mine IPTV launch

Siemens Communications has provided KPN, The Netherlands largest carrier, with a complete turnkey IPTV solution, including management systems for all applications, digital rights management, and uniform subscriber management for its Mine IPTV service offering.

The middleware providing the communication between the network and the set-top box comes from Myrio, a middleware specialist and Siemens subsidiary purchased in 2005 to complete Siemens' own IPTV offering.

In May, KPN launched Mine, offering viewers with the opportunity to call up programs from the three public Dutch channels as long as 10 days after they originally aired. Customers also can record up to 100 hours of programs on a recorder supplied from KPN, and select broadcasts from 65 TV and 60 radio channels using an electronic program guide. A wide selection of feature films is also available to watch on demand. The technology behind the IPTV package is Surpass Home Entertainment from Siemens Communications.
