Concurrent Inks Cogeco Deal5/10/2001 4:04 AM Eastern
Canadian MSO Cogeco Cable Inc. said it will deploy Concurrent Computer
Corp.'s video-on-demand system in Ontario and Quebec -- provinces where the
operator serves about 900,000 basic-cable subscribers.
Cogeco -- which uses the Motorola Broadband Communications Sector platform
there -- said it has about 108,000 digital set-top boxes deployed and it markets
digital services to about 80 percent of its subscriber base.
Concurrent said the Cogeco deployment will mark its first use of a
multilingual user interface, offering both English and French versions.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
The multiyear deal comes on the heels of Concurrent's selection of TVC Canada
as its exclusive agent in the country. TVC also hopes to spark deals for
Concurrent with larger Canadian MSOs such as Rogers Cable Inc. and Shaw
