Adelphia Signs for N2 Broadband’s ‘OpenStream’


N2 Broadband Inc. announced a deal with Adelphia Communications Corp. Monday under which the MSO will use the vendor’s "OpenStream" digital-services-platform software for its video-on-demand rollouts.

The software allows MSOs to get to market quicker with VOD services.

"The biggest benefit is that we can introduce [best-of-breed system] components under a single platform, alleviating the need to support multiple video-server, billing and provisioning interfaces," Adelphia senior vice president and chief technology officer Marwan Fawaz said in a prepared statement.

The software also allows MSOs to offer future interactive-TV and gaming applications.
