Conklin-Intracom Expands Partnership With Utah-based Broadband Service Provider to Launch University-specific Video Services
DULUTH, GA–(Marketwired – January 26, 2016) – Conklin-Intracom, a fully owned subsidiary of the Intracom Telecom Group and maker of innovative products and services for telco, cable, broadband and OTT content delivery solutions, today announced the successful implementation of TV anywhere video services at Utah-based Beehive Broadband to support a local university campus.
Beehive Broadband is one of Utah’s premier fiber Internet service providers, offering dedicated connections to residential and business customers with speeds up to 1 Gbps, as well as TV and voice services. Utilizing a custom version of Conklin-Intracom’s fs|cdn Anywhere, Beehive Broadband has successfully launched new TV anywhere video services tailored for viewing on web browsers and Roku® devices. The first users of the service are students in residential housing at a local university.
The fs|cdn Anywhere platform includes robust functionality for video service providers to optimize viewing video content on mobile devices. The TV anywhere component supports live TV, video on-demand, network DVR, Restart TV, user authentication, and adaptive bitrate streaming for a seamless viewing experience. The powerful, easy-to-use, intuitive apps are available for Android & iOS powered devices, Roku devices, and web browsers. fs|cdn Anywhere allows telco, cable, broadband and OTT service providers to manage multiple customized, branded video services from a single management tool. Current video service providers can deploy fs|cdn Anywhere independent of existing technologies to launch new OTT services.
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Beehive Broadband to support their desire to provide managed video services to highly mobile audiences,” stated Dave Hunt, Vice President of Business Development. “Our college campus version of fs|cdn Anywhere is ideally suited for this demographic.”
Beehive Broadband is also using Conklin-Intracom’s platform to manage video services to hundreds of IPTV set top boxes located throughout the campus in common areas.
“We chose to work with Conklin-Intracom because we knew their dedicated engineering staff could rapidly prototype a custom solution to fit our client’s stringent requirements,” said Scott Wilson, CEO of Beehive Broadband. “In addition, it is easy to manage multiple clients from their fs|cdn Anywhere platform. We are excited to develop similar, custom video services for other campuses.”
Conklin-Intracom will be demonstrating the fs|cdn Anywhere platform at the NCTC’s Winter Educational Conference in Phoenix, Arizona – February 15-16, 2016. For information about the NCTC show and Conklin-Intracom’s TV anywhere solution visit www.conklin-intracom.com.
