Tilgin announces TR-069 interoperability with Amino's IPTV set-top boxes through its new VCM 5.6 software

4 September 2009

Stockholm, Sweden and Cambridge UK, September 4 2009: Tilgin, a leading supplier of broadband services solutions for operators, today announces interoperability with Amino Communications' IPTV set-top boxes (STBs).

Tilgin's remote management solution enables operators to manage the STB remotely, allowing them to expand their IPTV offering whilst effectively managing operating costs.

Tilgin's VCM 5.6 Device Management software is based on Broadband Forum's TR-069 and TR-135 standards, which makes this system a fully open and standards compliant solution for service providers. This means that the service providers can manage their full triple play home solutions using VCM as the common CPE management platform.

Developed with a clear focus on operational efficiency, Tilgin's remote management solution allows broadband service providers to launch and deliver new services to the mass market without increasing operational expenses. Thanks to the flexibility in today's Broadband Forum TR-069 standards, the CPE challenges of yesterday can now be solved.

"In addition to delivering entertainment, the Amino STB has much more capability to offer operators. By interoperating with the Tilgin VCM 5.6 and through our development work to support IPTV industry standards based features such as TR-069, our STBs can enable operators with remote management and service-quality based features - leading ultimately to increased customer satisfaction", says David Groves, Head of Product Strategy at Amino.

"VCM customers claim VCM to be the most flexible and easy to use ACS systems on the market in terms of interoperability. Today, we are pleased to expand the flexibility with the announcement of a successful integration with Amino's STBs. This additional VCM functionality makes it even easier for our customers to continue to grow their service offerings," says Eric Hjelmestam, VP of Product Management at Tilgin.
