CPE / Middleware
middleware allows to convert end user customer-premises equipment into home entertainment device
The end user customer-premises equipment (CPE) is the set-top box or any smart device that decodes, decrypts, and displays TV content (multicast & unicast) on the viewer’s screen .. The CPE takes the data packets sent from the head-end over the IP transmission network and turns it into a picture for the viewer to see.
The middleware, also known as the interactive portal, is the graphical user interface (GUI that the viewers see. The electronic program guide, navigation, or any visual guide with which the viewer interacts makes up the middleware. Our middleware delivers two crucial components of the IPTV platform: 1. SysM Evo Client – an application software or firmware for End User Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) and 2. SysM App Server – an Interactive Application Portal Server
