BT launching Content Connect broadband TV platform

BT and Cisco have partnered up to launch the Content Connect broadband TV platform next year.

Cisco's Content Delivery System (CDS) will be the backing for BTCC - BT Content Connect, BT's broadband TV platform, after a deal between the two was announced.

According to the deal, digital content can be provided to computers, televisions and mobile devices when ISP's purchase BT Wholesale Content Connect. BT Wholesale's content services strategy director Simon Orme said: "Working with Cisco enables us to offer an efficient, long-term solution that brings the power of broadband and content together."

The Cisco CDS not only allows BT to provide the BTCC across the UK, but offers QoS (Quality of Service) to the end-user. Since the content will be cached, the end user can receive a steady level of service even at peak times.

This developement will handle the ever-increasing demand for broadband TV and IPTV - iPlayer, SeeSaw and Project Canvas for example - and is aimed to lower costs and enhance performance for consumers.

The broadband platform will be out in 2011, which could be thought to coincide with Project Canvas.

Will broadband television take over as the main viewing platform? Let us know your thoughts on T3's Twitter and Facebook pages.
