The MMDS Pay TV operator CTL Cable, which provides services across twelve Nigerian cities, is the first customer to deploy the newly launched Contego-as-a-Service cloud-based content protection platform from Conax. Contego-as-a-Service is a modular, cloud-based offering from Conax that includes the Conax Contego unified content security platform. The hosted/managed security solution enables operators to grow their business with lower CapEx and less operational complexity, and deploy more quickly. CTL Cable has been a Conax customer since 2003 and is upgrading to the cloud service.
“There are many indicators predicting that service-based models will become key business drivers moving forward,” says Tom Jahr, EVP Products & Marketing at Conax. “We already have extensive and long experience in operational security hosting, including operations with up to 14 million subscribers. Now we are taking our flagship Conax Contego unified security back-end to the next level by transforming our business model to include future-oriented SaaS models. We are confident that the new platform will further enhance security on CTL Cable’s network and boost revenues.”
