Ericsson’s Next Generation MediaPath Secure Content Delivery System was selected by Cox Communications for receiving and distributing content to its on demand library.

The library offers thousands of titles to Cox’s digital cable customers. The Ericsson solution will help Cox reduce its operational expenses by centralizing content ingest and distributing content to its local sites across its own network.

"Ericsson’s team worked with us closely to launch the secure central distribution system on a very tight timeline," said James Kelso, Cox’s VP of video engineering, in a statement. "The system has reduced our operating costs and gives us more control and flexibility in managing the on demand content that our sites receive."

Since 2001, Cox has used components of Ericsson’s on demand solution for receiving content from networks and programmers. When Cox wanted to leverage its existing IP/MPLS (Internet Protocol/Multi-Protocol Label Switching) over fiber backbone and improve the speed and reliability with which content is delivered and refreshed to its VOD library, they asked Ericsson for help implementing a new content distribution solution.
