Amino Technologies, based in Cambridge in the UK, has received a further order for its IPTV set top boxes from a Russian tier 1 telco for the expansion of its broadband television service.
This customer had been conducting extensive field trials of its internet protocol television service since last September. The customer has taken delivery of 15,000 units of the AmiNET 110 product, an MPEG2 device, with a further 5,000 units scheduled for delivery in August.
The new order calls for deliveries of an additional 49,000 units for delivery by January 2006. The value of the new order is just under $5 million.
“Although this new order has already been included in our business plan, we are delighted to see the first volume roll out by a tier 1 telco of IPTV services using Amino technology,” said Bob Giddy, the chief executive of Amino.
