Huawei Selects Kasenna as VOD Partner for China

Huawei Technologies has selected Kasenna's PortalTV product suite and its MediaBase XMP VOD server as the core component of a fully integrated video-on-demand service to be rolled out to cable customers initially in China and then internationally. The first joint customer is Chongqing Cable, which plans to deliver video-on-demand to 500,000 cable customers in mainland China.

Kasenna's PortalTV combines a web services-based IPTV middleware called LivingRoom 2.0 which gives operators flexibility to make more rapid programming changes, and MediaBase 8.2, a widely deployed video server software.

MediaBase XMP is Kasenna's flagship video delivery software that manages the video content for delivery, turning affordable off-the-shelf Linux/Intel servers from leading server vendors into scalable high-performance video-delivery platforms.
