Siemens SURPASS Home Entertainment Deployed in Maine

Oxford Networks, one of Maine's leading local communication providers, has deployed the Siemens SURPASS Home Entertainment portfolio of IPTV solutions to provide IP television services via FTTH.

Oxford Networks is now equipped to provide IPTV services to more than 7,000 of its customers.

The Siemens SURPASS Home Entertainment portfolio is built on an open, standards-based architecture that enables back-office management tools and building blocks for the convergence of entertainment, communications and smart home solutions. The solution includes IPTV middleware from Myrio, a Siemens company.

Siemens said it provides end-to-end IPTV solutions to more than 75 U.S. regional operators as well as many more worldwide, including national operators such as KPN Royal Dutch Telecom and Belgacom in Europe and Advanced Datanetwork Communications (ADC) in Thailand.

In December, China's Shanghai Telecom Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Media Group (SMG) announced it will be collaborating with Siemens to offer IPTV services to a market that includes 25 million broadband users and 360 million television viewers. Globally, Siemens IPTV contracts cover more than 38 million broadband lines.
