May 4, 2022 - Thüringer Netkom from Weimar has opted for the cloud solution from ocilion. The German network operator is thus relying on the proven IPTV platform, which is white-labeled and completely adapted to its needs and wishes as a turnkey solution. By the end of the year, Thüringer Netkom will be able to offer its existing customers a modern IPTV product under its own brand and also serve new customers with it. Users benefit from future-proof 4K set-top boxes, apps for iOS and Android, extensive channel packages with various convenience functions (replay, restart, pause/play, recordings), a seamlessly integrated video library and media libraries.
Thüringer Netkom is a 100% subsidiary of TEAG Thüringer Energie AG. As the largest regional network operator in Thuringia, the company supplies its customers with fast Internet (up to 1,000 Mbit/s) with a nationwide fiber optic network and also supplies Thuringian universities and commercial enterprises. With its own service teams and regional partners, Thüringer Netkom can offer the complete service from a single source.
Hendrik Westendorff, Managing Director of Thüringer Netkom: "The modern IPTV solution from ocilion convinced us and rounds off our product portfolio perfectly. An innovative triple play offer is essential for a regional network operator like Thüringer Netkom. Especially with regard to the fiber optic expansion into every apartment, in addition to the high-performance IP connection, an attractive TV offer with modern reception options and functions such as a set-top box or app plays an important role.”
Hans Kühberger, Managing Director of ocilion: “Thüringer Netkom has opted for our proven overall cloud package including software, hardware and accompanying services. This means that it can easily and, above all, quickly migrate its existing customers to the new IPTV platform and win new customers with an attractive TV service. I am very pleased that we were able to inspire another well-known customer in Germany, Thüringer Netkom, with our IPTV cloud solution.”
