Ericsson wins role in Thai TV digitisation project

Thai TV viewers

Thailand is aiming to achieve digital switchover by 2015

As part of Thailand’s ongoing project to digitise all television broadcasting by 2015, local premium network service provider Symphony has deployed a content exchange system from Ericsson to enable the distribution of high quality TV content throughout the country via IP.

The deployment will enable video traffic to be efficiently transported between central and regional sites in Thailand over Symphony’s fibre optic networks, which provide data transmission for circuit links between the base stations of telecommunication companies, as well as government and the private corporate sector.

Symphony has deployed an Ericsson solution that includes the E5710 MPEG-2 SD encoder, Ericsson RX8200 receivers and the CE-Encoder by Ericsson to enable the reliable exchange of video between central and regional sites in Thailand.
