Kreatel, a leading developer of internet protocol (IPTV) based digital set-tops, claims its Linux-based solution extends into the application and middleware layers, allowing it to be used with a broad set of middleware solutions.
With a customer base that includes major service providers such as Telefonica, TeliaSonera, and KPN, the Kreatel acquisition is a significant win for Motorola.
According to Kraetel, its flexible set-top platform is a natural complement to Motorola’s end-to-end digital video solution, and particularly addresses the growing need for IPTV-based digital set-tops.
Dan Moloney, president of Motorola connected home solutions, said, Combining Motorola and Kreatel’s strengths is immensely attractive to green field video networks around the world and provides a critical solution as service providers evolve their video networks in the future. Motorola will have a flexible IPTV portfolio that addresses the real challenges faced by service providers worldwide as they build and evolve their networks.
