WorldCall Telecom selects Verimatrix for digital cable network

WorldCall Telecom, a telecom and multimedia service provider in Pakistan, has deployed Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for DVB to secure its digital cable (DVB-C) network.

The Oman Telecommunications Company (Omantel) will also be using the Verimatrix  solution for supporting the transition to broadcast-hybrid service delivery.

VCAS for DVB, which replaces WorldCall’s current security system, secures WorldCall’s linear content library and associated revenue for broadcast services over its DVB-C network, including WorldCall Cable TV services, said Verimatrix.

The company is managing the service via redundant head-ends in Karachi and Lahore and six regional headends in other cities of Pakistan. It is delivered using SandMartin BVA3006 high definition (HD) set top boxes (STBs).

The cardless VCAS system supports future network expansion, including the addition of more advanced and flexible services, such as over-the-top (OTT) video delivery.
