Interoperability for BigBand, Concurrent

4/09/2006 11:00 PM Eastern

BigBand Networks Inc. and Concurrent Computer Corp. announced successful interoperability of their solutions for live and stored video.

The two vendors said BigBand’s “BMR (Broadband Multimedia-Service Router)” and “BME (Broadband Multimedia Service Edge)” and Concurrent’s “Real-Time Media” system “provide all of the elements required to implement network-based time-shifting.”

Network-based time-shifting offers subscribers control over live programming, enabling digital-video-recorder-like functionality without the purchase of a DVR.
