Bridge Technologies Deployed in Thailand

Bridge Technologies system simplifies the relationship between video and IP at Thailand’s largest fixed line and mobile network operator.

Oslo, Norway-based Bridge Technologies announced the recent successful deployment of its video services monitoring solution in Thailand at TOT Public Company Limited. TOT is Thailand’s largest fixed line and mobile network operator. Advanced Digital Tech Group Thailand (ADT), Bridge Technologies’ business partner in the region, played a key role in this technologically advanced project.

Bridge Technologies’ system was specifically developed for terrestrial broadcasting applications. At TOT, it ensures the integrity of the DVB-T2 specific encapsulation and the individual services carried within that encapsulation, at TOT’s central distribution location at Khlong Toei, Bangkok, and at provincial antenna sites. The VB120 IP probes, equipped with T2MI monitoring capabilities also have proactive alarm based stream capture functionality. Bridge Technologies also supplied the VBC Video Bridge Controller to provide centralized service status and reporting. Combined with Bridge Technologies’ IP network performance monitoring, the system can detect any specific network issues as well as provide an understanding of the effects of any such issues on the integrity of the data stream.

“Ensuring 100% reliability of our video specific IP distribution network is critical for our business” explained Mr. Sarotphi Phiraphong, Chief Engineer of Broadcast Department at TOT “whilst our customers’ interest is in ensuring 100% service quality. Bridge Technologies’ system simplifies the complex relationship between the two.”

“The use of third party national and international IP-based video contribution networks is growing,” added James Chance, Regional Manager APAC “for which network performance and video service monitoring systems are proving to be an invaluable component in both operations and as part of the business relationship.”

Hong Kong, Macau representative appointed

Bridge Technologies has appointed Mediatech as its representative in Hong Kong and Macau.

Mediatech was founded in 1993 and has established itself as one of the most experienced and versatile businesses in the broadcast and ICT industries. Mediatech’s customers in Hong Kong and the surrounding regions include TV broadcasters, cable operators, telecom service providers, post-production facilities, corporations, and universities.

“From a technical point of view, Hong Kong has always been a first mover investor in technology infrastructure - boasting one of the first and largest IPTV deployments. It is a global leader in digital video entertainment, with a large and vibrant local content producing industry, and is a regional distribution hub for international content,” said James Chance, Regional Manager, APAC at Bridge Technologies.

“Hong Kong has a highly developed consumer market, and subscribers are very quality conscious,” continued Chance. “That means that every video streaming provider will require quality control and monitoring if they want to ensure optimum customer satisfaction and maintain or grow their business. It’s that ability to enable fast, intuitive understanding of what’s going on in their network and maximize quality of experience that Bridge Technologies and Mediatech will bring.”
