December 19, 2007

Stockholm, Sweden -- Edgeware today announced that Danish cable TV operator Telia Stofa is using the Orbit 2x server system to deliver the on-demand functionality of their new Zaptor service. Edgeware's distributed server solution enables Telia Stofa to smoothly integrate on-demand capabilities into their existing network, in a scalable and future proof architecture. The Zaptor service will offer video on-demand and time-shift TV in SD and HD quality.
"Telia Stofa sees a variety of opportunities in interactive TV. User trials indicate that the market is mature for on-demand services, better TV-signals and that the end users want influence on the programme mix. An important factor for Stofa has been to build an IP-based infrastructure that can be upscaled when the customer base is expanding. We think that the Edgeware Orbit2x server system fulfil our demand for a flexible solution, says Thomas Helbo," development manager at Stofa, TeliaSoneras Danish cable-TV-provider.

Edgeware's Orbit 2x servers, which are capable of delivering 20 Gbps streaming from solid state flash memory, are arranged hierarcically. Distributed Edgeware servers close to the subscribers, deliver the most popular films and TV programmes, while central configurations of the Orbit 2x deliver the full content depth. Content propagation is automatically managed by Edgeware's ConvoyTM system which minimizes the need for core network bandwidth.

"We are honoured to have been selected by Telia Stofa, to power their advanced service. It marks an undisputable recognition of our solution also in a cable environment." says Joachim Roos, CEO of Edgeware. "Telia Stofa is a good example of a customer who sees the benefits of using our network deployed solid state appliances in a decentralized architecture. This is a less expensive, more scalable and smarter way of deploying than stacking generic computers in data centers."
