Denmark's TRE-FOR Bredbånd Selects Cisco for Video on Demand over Fiber

TRE-FOR Bredbånd A/S, the broadband network operator serving the Triangle Region in Denmark, has deployed the Cisco Content Delivery System (CDS) in its open access fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network to deliver advanced entertainment and interactive media. The solution is used to provide TRE-FOR's content provider partners with a highly extensible platform to support high-value subscriber services such as video-on-demand (VoD), program time-shifting, local programming, "long tail" content, and public, educational and government channels. The Cisco CDS solution also offers the possibility of targeted ad insertion and network personal video recording (nPVR) services if future legislation allows.

The Cisco CDS solution is an IP NGN-based, modular video-delivery platform. Financial terms were not disclosed.
