Vidéotron Ltée will use BigBand Networks Inc.’s “Broadband Multimedia-Service Router” to manage digital broadcasting of standard-definition and HD television programming, the vendor said Tuesday.

The deployment will cover more than 250,000 digital subscribers throughout the Montreal area.

“The BigBand BMR's versatility provides the best solution for our needs as it supports maximum video quality, including high-definition, with efficient network transport over long distances,” Vidéotron senior director of engineering Mohamed Drif said in a prepared statement.
