ZAP, Arris partner for African nDVR, VoD service

African pay-TV service provider, ZAP, has partnered with Arris Group, for the delivery of network DVR (nDVR) and video on demand (VOD) services.

“Providing value-added services to our subscribers will ensure we continue to be the provider of choice for our customers. The rising demand for catch-up TV meant we had to upgrade and improve our delivery network,” said Luis Henriques, engineering and IT director at ZAP.

In this agreement, ZAP will use Arris’ APEX3000 chassis-based edge QAM platform to merge network traffic and increase channel capacity, with Portuguese system integrator, Satcab, deploying the solution.
