Kasenna, HP and Intel Team on IPTV Test

Kasenna has teamed with HP and Intel to complete a one- million-IPTV-subscriber benchmark test for broadcast television and bandwidth-intensive Video on Demand (VOD) services. Kasenna said the benchmark test proved that an IPTV infrastructure developed by Kasenna, together with HP and Intel, can support one million subscribers.

The IPTV-infrastructure test-bed, built around Kasenna's Portal TV product suite, consisting of the "LivingRoom" middleware platform and MediaBase video server software, utilized industry-standard HP ProLiant servers powered by Intel low-power Dual-Core Xeon processors. The test was conducted in a simulated access network environment at the HP Communications, Media and Entertainment (CME) Solution Center in Grenoble, France.

Kasenna's LivingRoom IPTV middleware platform provides scalable service delivery using portal-based Web services, while the Kasenna MediaBase video content streaming, distribution, and delivery platform provides scalable on- demand video delivery from disk- and RAM-based servers.
