Cable TV companies have been flirting with IPTV developments for the last couple years, and we are seeing initial signs that 2010 will be a year for significant commercial deployments. In what is believed to be the first IPTV deployment for cable TV firm Cox Communications, the Atlanta-based carrier's Hospitality Network unit is using a fiber-based IPTV architecture to bring programming to buildings in the massive Las Vegas CityCenter complex.
Cox is offering 230 channels of programming on a system that relies on two 10-gigabit fiber circuits tied to multiple end-points throughout the 67-acre hotel-casino/residential/commercial complex, according to a story at Multichannel News. The IPTV system also uses SeaChange International's video-on-demand system and middleware, and set-top boxes from Enseo.
