Real World Use Case:
How UPC Hungary rapidly rolled-out new value-add OTT video service to 500k+ subscribers
Date: September 8, 2015
Speakers: Kontron, Intel, UPC, ActiveVideo
Within the last year, cable operator UPC Hungary has demonstrated just how well Internet video services can integrate with traditional pay-TV services, with YouTube naturally proving to be the biggest attraction with subscribers. Last September, UPC Hungary announced that customers were viewing more than one million minutes per day of YouTube content during the first three months of availability on TV, with the average viewing time per session at about 45 minutes.
To make YouTube available on existing STBs, UPC Hungary virtualized boxes’ functionality in the cloud, using the CloudTV Streamcast platform from ActiveVideo. But what was the overall approach that enabled UPC to deploy the service so quickly? What cloud infrastructure was implemented to ensure the network could keep up with sharp spikes in demand for more video?

IoT applications in every industry are abounding. Embedded systems, tools, and cloud services companies are responding with a variety of hardware, software, and development kits to accelerate IoT development. Is the IoT application itself represent enough differentiation? Or must there be features and capabilities within the app to provide differentiation at the cost of time to market? Join us as a panel of IoT experts discuss buy versus innovate trade-offs with IoT application to balance differentiation with time to market pressures.
