Content security specialist Conax has signed a reseller agreement with ZTE Corporation that will see the Connected Access IPTV security client bundled with ZTE’s complete offering targeting the global IPTV market. This strengthens Conax’s expansion plans for the IPTV market. The first joint operator deployments are being prepared.
Conax Connected Access provides content protection for IPTV and OTT and acts as a single security client for all operator content received in a connected set-top box, so effectively converging DRM and CA management. It also eliminates the need for multiple security back-ends.
Fang Hui, Vice President at ZTE Corporation, says: “As we aim to tap the broad opportunities forecasted in the coming years for the IPTV market, ZTE sees strong synergies in partnering with Conax to provide their leading security technology for our global IPTV offering. Conax’s security reputation, reliability and extensive experience in additional segments provide interesting opportunities for harnessing future growth.”
