Siemens IPTV Dominates US Market

Siemens Communications provided an update on its SURPASS Home Entertainment portfolio of broadcast server provider solutions, which has now been deployed by more than 75 U.S. regional operators as well as many more worldwide. Siemens claims the most IPTV deployments in the United States to date, with two-thirds of its customers making IP television solutions commercially available to subscribers. Globally, Siemens IPTV contracts now cover more than 38 million broadband lines.

Siemens said its initial goal has been to quickly enable service providers to get up and running with IPTV home entertainment and home network communication offerings. Siemens is now working to develop broader smart home networks that can be managed by users from anywhere and from any device.

The company plans to leverage relationships in the health care and security industries to help operators launch home-based health care services, including video conferencing between patients and doctors as well as remote home control and surveillance capabilities. For example, Siemens' smart home vision includes the use of a mobile device, from a remote location, to activate and set a DVR to record a show or even to turn off a stove or operate other home appliances.
