Rostelecom delivers wireless multiroom TV service

Russia’s Rostelecom has introduced a new multiroom TV service using Wi-Fi video bridges from Motorola Mobility to enable subscribers to wirelessly access programming on secondary sets around the home.

The telco (part of Syazinvest) has deployed Motorola’s VAP 2400 video bridges, which support the 802.11n standard and can be purchased up front or rented over 36 monthly instalments by Rostelecom subscribers.

Rostelecom has around 1.4mn subscribers for its digital TV services and relaunched its IPTV service last May with a number of major improvements, including multi-screen access to the service, new channels added, and social TV features – details here.

US firm ARRIS recently bought Motorola Home, the CPE part of Motorola Mobility, for US$ 2.45bn – more details here.
