STB Features Reduce Overall Time-to-Market, Costs and Customer Churn
The CX2448x offers high levels of performance in a format that saves space, reduces the external component count, cuts design time, and lowers overall cost – all of which were extremely appealing to InCablenet, given the wide-scale deployment required to meet the I&B's initiative.
Mr. Mansukhani stated, "Entropic proved to be the ideal STB SoC technology partner for us, as the Company offers a proven solution with international deployments by Tier-1 MSOs. They also understood our need to stay ahead of the competition, by enabling new consumer services to minimize subscriber churn."
The Entropic SoC had several security features including advanced Conditional Access (CA) integration with Nagra for unprecedented levels of protection against piracy; an advanced one-time-programmable (OTP) memory technology to personalize individual STBs with unique serial numbers and encryption keys; and uses embedded cryptographic technology for secure authentication of any STB system software loaded into the Flash memory."With India's cable TV market undergoing a massive digital transformation, we are working with InCablenet to seamlessly migrate their subscribers from analog to digital cable," said Mark Samuel, senior vice president and general manager, Set-top Box Group, Entropic. "We understand the market in India, and coupled with our field-proven, cost-optimized set-top box system-on-a-chip solution we are confident we can rapidly assist InCablenet in their wide-scale network upgrade to satisfy the growing needs of its subscriber base."
