POST Luxembourg Extends Streaming With Anevia

POST Luxembourg, the country’s primary provider of telecom and mail services, has extended its deployment of video streaming and packaging software with Paris-based Anevia.

This introduces a dual-site architecture and extends Anevia’s Embedded Distributed Storage (EDS) technology originally implemented in 2015 to simplify POST Luxembourg’s operations by converging storage and streaming. This made the platform easy to maintain and to scale up, while eliminating the need for network attached storage, reducing costs and energy consumption significantly. The dual-site architecture adds redundancy and resilience to reduce risk of recordings being lost.

“Following the success of our multiscreen service called PostTV, we needed to provide more capacity for both streaming and storage to support the increasing demand for non-linear services,” said Georges Klosen, Head of Telecom Applications at POST Luxembourg. “We also wanted to make sure that our subscribers’ recordings would be delivered in any case, and that we could fulfil our commitments with third-party operators. That is why we opted for the dual-site architecture and for the scalability offered by Anevia’s Embedded Distributed Storage technology.”

NEA-DVR provides the packaging, streaming and recording facilities needed to prepare and deliver cloud DVR, catch-up, timeshift and live channels to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, as well as PCs and set top boxes. Subscribers can record the programmes of their choice without needing any extra hardware.
