Security for virtualized datacentres

Pace Micro Technology is to provide the set-top systems for the rollout of UK cable company NTL's two-way digital cable network. NTL has 25 per cent of the UK cable market, covering 5.2 million homes. The Pace systems will use C-Cube's AViA@tv set-top platform, which will provide Web access, hi-fi audio/video, browsing, email, chat, pay per view, games and home shopping. Pace is involved with 18 broadcasters world-wide, and claims to be the only company holding set-top box manufacturing contracts for all three digital TV platforms in the UK: cable, satellite and terrestrial. Separately, C-Cube yesterday announced that Pioneer had also adopted its platform, which uses a Sun microSparc processor. ®
