Tut Systems Hits Century Mark


Tut Systems Inc. said Monday that 100 telecommunications operators are now using its digital-headend solution to deliver digital TV over their broadband networks.

The company's first customer deployed digital TV over a digital-subscriber-line network in 2000.

Tut’s digital-headend solution aids telcos in their efforts to deploy the “triple play” of telephone, high-speed Internet and digital TV.

“Whether it's digital TV coming from a consortium of [interexchange carriers] in Minnesota, or the world's largest and most successful video-over-DSL deployment in Hong Kong, the industry has repeatedly proven that telco TV is a viable and valuable consumer service,” Tut CEO Sal D'Auria said in a prepared statement.
