LIME chooses Juniper Networks to rebroadcast Avail-TVN's Content - Pepita Little's Ghostbusters to capture Media Personalities


It looks like Telecom Provider LIME has finally chose a good Telecom Equipment Supplier to power their ultimate Free-to-Air television killer in the fore of their partnership with Avail-TVN as this plucky blogger reported in an earlier blog article entitled “LIME parent CWC partners with Avail-TVN to provide IPTV Streaming Service - War of The Worlds against Netflix”.

They have chosen Juniper Networks, as per the announcement in the article “LIME to roll out more TV services”, published Sunday December 18, 2011, The Jamaica Gleaner. What’s even more interesting, they may have already snagged a Media Personality in the form of Pepita Little of Television Jamaica’s Intense Fame to host local content on their show, assuming I am reading the symbolism in the staged article PEPITA NO LONGER ON INTENSE”, published Tuesday December 20 2011 by SHELDON WILLIAMS, Staff Reporter, The Jamaica Star correctly.
As I had pointed out in that article, Telecom Provider LIME actions are CWC (Cable and Wireless Corporate) have nothing to do with the small fish in the form of Television Jamaica and CVM TV. It has more to do with Netflix and Google TV, Fortune 500 companies already on their way to Jamaica to use our Fiber Optic gateways as a beachhead to make a bigger push into the heart of Latin America.

So Television Jamaica and CVM TV are going to be the first casualties of this war, and it’s not even directed at them, despite LIME TV curated service slant towards Free-to-Air broadcasters. They are the small fish shown in the blog article entitled “LIME parent CWC partners with Avail-TVN to provide IPTV Streaming Service - War of The Worlds against Netflix”!

Juniper Networks will provide the MGW compatible equiptment that will convert the content supplied by Avail-TVN to a format that can be transmitted over Telecom Provider LIME’s HSDPA+ Release 7 (High Speed Downlink Packet Access Plus) Network Upgrade slated to go live in December of 2012AD as stated in my blog article entitled LIME's US$80 million Caribbean HSDPA+ Release 7 Upgrade - Sonic the Hedgehog” heralds Telecom Provider LIME’s War of the Worlds (2005).

That is the “Media Flow Controller” referred to in the article, which does this conversion in Juniper Network’s equipment and assigns IP addresses to the video stream. This so that the UE (User Equipment) devices at each persons home that will use Telecom Provider LIME new HSDPA+ Release 7 (High Speed Downlink Packet Access Plus) Network as backhaul to provision this service can access the encrypted video feed and distinguish the channels and 42MBps capable Internet service.

Not much different from IPTV Streaming, making Juniper Networks, which has a background in launching IPTV Platforms the perfect Telecom Equiptment Provider to launch this product. Thus with a planned HSDPA+ Release 7 (High Speed Downlink Packet Access Plus) Network Upgrade, this product intended Fourth Quarter 2011AD debut is basically on schedule as per CWC's and LIME Jamaica Joint Press Release that reveals Jamaica and Barbados as the guinea pigs as, quote: “The service will launch commercially in Jamaica and Barbados in Q4, with expansion across the Caribbean to follow in 2012”.

Truly, CWC is deathly afraid of Google’s strategic purchase of Motorola Mobility and their push into the EU (European Union) as per my blog article entitled “Google TV making push into the EU – Motorola Mobility Purchase Die Another Day” and the coming dominance of Netflix in the IPTV Streaming as stated in my blog article entitled “Netflix coming to Latin America - Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer”.

So folks, expect an announcement on this in the coming few weeks as Telecom Provider LIME’s announcement of Juniper Networks as their point man puts Triple Play Provider FLOW as the next Big Fish on Telecom Provider LIME’s dinner platter in 2012AD.

By the way, where is Telecom Provider Digicel in the middle of all of this?

Is a partnership with Netflix their intended plan as per my musings my blog article entitled “Digicel and WiMax 4G Mobile - Back to the Future as NetFlix Expands”? Or is Telecom Provider Digicel more interested in going the Amazon Kindle Fire route and selling Samsung Galaxy Tablets as e-readers at slashed prices in partnership with local Newspaper companies as per my blog article entitled “Digicel, Samsung Galaxy Tablets and Newspapers - Tomorrow Never Dies and the Paper Man”.

After all, like Free-to-Air Broadcasters, Newspapers are on the menu as well as noted in my blog article entitled “Traditional News Media vs Broadband Telecoms - GigaOM's Avoiding ELE After Deep Impact”.

So folks, Let the migration of Media Personalities from Free-to-Air Broadcasters begin, starting with Pepita Little whose leaving Television Jamaica as per the staged article PEPITA NO LONGER ON INTENSE”, published Tuesday December 20 2011 by SHELDON WILLIAMS, Staff Reporter, The Jamaica Star  may really be a jumping of ship to Telecom Provider LIME.

Being young, she, like other soon to follow, may be attracted by the future higher salaries at Telecom Provider LIME soon-to-come-on-stream IPTV Streaming Service with content (Digital Audio and Video) from Avail-TVN and powered by Equiptment from Juniper Networks, Ghostbusters (1984) Style.

As for the fight? 

Possible with her Manager over the future of her show, which is not her own but was fast losing relevance in a world going IPTV Streaming and Social Networking, based on a forensic audit of her posts on her FB profile. More as this side story develops, as the murky world of Media Personalities just got interesting again.
