Multimedia content delivery platforms - Ericsson joins Cisco, Motorola, Nokia Siemens, and Alcatel-Lucent

If you're a video service provider, you're obviously looking at how to deliver multiple types of video formats (particularly IP) over multiple networks to numerous devices. And, if you're a video infrastructure player, you want to have a solution that can handle different formats, codecs, encoding, etc. We've known that Cisco and Motorola have been quite active in this space, with Cisco offering its Content Delivery System and Motorola pushing Medios. (By the way, ActiveVideo Networks is demonstrating its CloudTV platform in conjunction with the Cisco CDS architecture at IBC.) Nokia Siemens offers the Ubiquity Multiscreen Platform, and Alcatel-Lucent has the Velocix Digital Media Delivery Platform.

Now, Ericsson has an offering called the Media Delivery Network (MDN). MDN is a media-centric network that supports multi-channel TV, video on demand, and over-the-top video content from the same core infrastructure. It includes solutions for distribution and delivery, caching, storing, streaming, transcoding and the content management system (CMS). It also enables targeted advertising and fast channel changing across any platform to any screen.
