By Nathesh, TMCnet Contributor
With SeaWell’s Spectrum (News - Alert) Session Delivery Controller, Nemont Telephone Cooperative, Inc. is hoping to deliver live and on-demand local video content over the Nemont.TV subscriber’s broadband connection.
Derrick Mottern, wireline operations manager at Nemont, stated, “Unlike any other option available, SeaWell enables Nemont.TV to deliver innovative, superior services to our subscribers, while managing the quality of experience on a per-session basis. Our customers are our top priority, and our work with SeaWell further showcases our commitment to providing the best service possible.”
Nemont will leverage Spectrum’s features like advanced, per-session monitoring and control, including dynamic format repackaging to any adaptive bit rate (ABR) streaming protocol, policy enforcement and real-time user and device-level data in order to offer Multiscreen 2.0 services to Nemont.TV subscribers.
According to SeaWell, Multiscreen 2.0 is a combination of capabilities that allow operators to regain control of ABR video delivery and most of all it enables a dramatically heightened level of differentiation.
SeaWell’s Spectrum Session Delivery Controller is an intelligent ABR management solution that optimizes video while enabling new ways to control and monetize content and it is capable of dynamically controlling each video session, enabling format repackaging, QoE optimization, policy enforcement, targeted advertising and high levels stream resiliency and scalability.
With ability to offer control in an unmanaged network, Spectrum supposedly sits at the network edge providing all of the key capabilities that operators require to deliver, control, monetize and scale their TV and video on-demand services.
SeaWell explained that its open-standard solutions allow operators of all sizes to manage and monetize superior multiscreen services to a level previously not possible and the deployment with Nemont continues to prove that its approach to multiscreen delivery is key to driving the industry forward.
