Grant Investrade to use Hansen’s billing solution for HITS service

MUMBAI: Hinduja Group-owned Grant Investrade will use Hansen’s ICC billing solution for its headend-in-the-sky (HITS) service NXT Digital. Grant Investrade, which was looking for an internationally recognised tier 1 solution to support their new HITS platform, chose Hansen ICC for its powerful and flexible multi-company, multi-tenancy architecture. The company has signed a multi-year licence agreement with Australia-headquartered Hansen Technologies for this purpose. “With a potential target market of more than 100 million subscribers, we needed the leverage of a globally recognised firm with the expertise to move us forward. The implementation of our HITS platform will allow local cable operators to provide high-quality digital TV services to customers within their specific regions,” said Grant Investrade managing director Tony D’Silva. Hansen Technologies was selected by Grant Investrade after a rigorous four-stage evaluation process conducted by leading broadcast consultancy firm Castle Media, which is also the technology programme manager for the HITS service. “Hansen exhibited the functionality and features that are required for an extremely complex multi-tier operation. With its pedigree and experience in the global pay TV space, it is certainly the appropriate partner for such a high-value project,” said Castle Media executive director Vynsley Fernandes. With cable network operations spread over a vast geographical reach, the HITS system aggregates pay TV channels at a centralised location and then uplinks them to the HITS satellite. The signal is received by local multi-system operators (MSOs) and last-mile owners (LMOs) who license NXT Digital integrated premise equipment for onward distribution to their subscribers. Hansen ICC has the strength and flexibility to support HITS by giving control to the parent organisation while allowing the individual businesses to operate independently. “Businesses that run distributed models like HITS require the flexibility to balance the needs of the overall organisation with each of the independent operating units,” said Hansen Technologies CEO Andrew Hansen. “The HITS business hierarchy requirements are highly complex; our pay TV solution enables NXT Digital to provide MSOs and LMOs a scalable solution from a single deployment.”
