WorldCall Telecom Limited Selects Verimatrix Cardless DVB Security Solutions for Enhanced Revenue Protection

Leading Pakistani Cable Operator Chooses VCAS for DVB to Provide Robust Revenue Security and Support Future Network Expansion

SINGAPORE -- (Marketwired) -- 06/16/14 -- CommunicAsia - Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced that WorldCall Telecom Limited, an Oman Telecommunications Company (Omantel) and a unique telecom and multimedia service provider in Pakistan, has deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for DVB to secure its digital cable (DVB-C) network and to support the transition to broadcast-hybrid service delivery.

VCAS for DVB replaces WorldCall's current security system, which was reliant on costly and cumbersome smartcards. VCAS for DVB secures WorldCall's linear content library and associated revenue for broadcast services over its DVB-C network, including WorldCall Cable TV services, which offer a diverse mix of drama, thriller, action, romance, news and documentaries over 300+ channels. The service is managed 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).

"We chose VCAS because it integrates seamlessly with our existing resources and because of the many advantages of cardless security," said Furqan Ahman Mubarik, senior manager, Engineering and Planning, WorldCall Telecom Limited. "Verimatrix is highly regarded as the leader in cardless security, and we are confident that using the VCAS multi-network architecture will allow us to cost-effectively expand our service offering to include hybrid and OTT services in the future -- without requiring a significant increase in CAPEX."

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. The multi-network VCAS platform enables operators to combine standards-based and proven DVB technology for broadcast (one-way) networks, while supporting future extension to IP centric network topologies from a single security authority.

"It's no secret that cardless security solutions offer many benefits, including operational simplicity, reduced CAPEX and logistical advantages," said Steve Oetegenn, president, Verimatrix. "We are delighted to be working with WorldCall to help them realize these significant benefits while also providing a stable and scalable foundation for future growth."

Verimatrix will illustrate the key role of multi-network revenue security at CommunicAsia 2014, 17-20 June 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands (booth #1M2-07). In addition, the company with host the latest installment of its popular Multi-Network Solutions in the Real World Forum during CommunicAsia on 18 June at 8:30 a.m. at 1-Altitude 1 Raffles Places in Stellar Room, Level 62.
