TeliaSonera Selects Edgeware for Video On Demand

TeliaSonera has deployed Edgeware video on demand servers to support its video on demand service. Edgeware is now support 300 thousand IPTV subscribers at TeliaSonera.

TeliaSonera is using Edgeware’s Orbit 2x, which is a video server appliance with Each up to 3 TB of flash memory content storage and is capable of streaming 20 Gbps to more than
16,000 concurrent users.

Edgeware is one of the first IPTV video on demand systems to use flash memory rather than hard disks. This should make its systems more reliable by eliminating mechanical storage devices. TUS in Slovenia is also using Edgeware and told me that they were quite impressed with the small size of the device.
