Versant And Fraunhofer FOKUS Demonstrate Power Of Object Databases To Deliver IPTV Services

The FOKUS Open IPTV Ecosystem provides a complete solution for open IPTV standards and end-to-end IPTV for both managed and unmanaged networks. The system is the first available end-to-end solution for the telecom R&D market. Service providers may purchase the system for proof of concepts, pilots or other research projects directly from Fraunhofer FOKUS.

"The initial results from our strategic research partnership with Fraunhofer FOKUS demonstrate the major benefits of the object database approach to IPTV service implementations," says Dirk Bartels, Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy at Versant. "The integration of our technology with the Open IPTV Ecosystem provides a powerful solution for delivering high speed, interactive IPTV infrastructures that scale to meet user demand. Other than the initial IPTV use cases investigated with Fraunhofer FOKUS, we see a wide range of applications for our solution in the consumer electronics, telecom and broadcasting industries."

The full results of the benchmarking study are available as a white paper which can be downloaded from
