General News Dish TV and Siti select Conax for cardless STBs
MUMBAI: Essel Group-owned DTH operator Dish TV and MSO Siti Networks (earlier Siti Cable Network) have selected the Conax Cardless content protection solution as a key component for their cardless set-top boxes (STBs).

Based on the flagship Conax Contego security hub, the Conax Cardless conditional access technology will be a key and essential security component integrated in the chipsets, which will enable use of multiple layers of content protection in the new Dish TV and Siti Networks cardless STBs.

The agreement signifies a continued commitment between the Essel Group and Conax to further their long-term partnership and jointly bring new generations of technology to the group’s platforms.

Conax Cardless technology employs a unique combination of hardware security and security providing a hardware root of trust for the best level of protection. The secure software is executed within a purpose-built hardware protected environment (Secure Execution Environment) within the chipset.

The Conax Cardless technology provides seamless co-existence with legacy smart card population, all based on a single, unified backend, meaning in any operation only one backend is necessary “

With the growing competitive landscape in the operator segment, and the need for access to costly premium content and at the same time keeping operational costs low, it is essential to employ flexible solutions that also offer a high level of security as we look to continue to grow our business,” said Dish TV MD Jawahar Goel.

“Conax has been a long-term partner and we believe their strong security solutions will continue to provide an important layer of security to our growing pay TV business already servicing over 13 million subscribers,” he added.

“As we continue to advance our footprint in the Indian cable TV market and venture into digitisation in Phase III and IV markets, it is essential that new and cost-effective security solutions are available to us. Siti Networks is pleased to further its existing relationship with Conax and implement the Conax cardless technology going forward in our markets,” said Siti Networks CEO and executive director VD Wadhwa.

“Conax’s long-term relationship and partnership with Essel Group reaches a new milestone today as we look to further strengthen both the Dish TV and Siti Networks platforms and help expand its customer base with a new high-security, flexible and revolutionary solution,” said Conax president and CEO Morten Solbakken.

“With this unique concept, they are well positioned to capture additional new market share and protect the premium content demanded by savvy consumers. We are honoured to work together with Essel Group in the next step of their journey,” he added.
