TRAI panel to study interoperability of STBs

Interoperability of set top boxes has been high on the regulator’s agenda for a long time

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has brought on board C-DOT as well as experts from institutions such as IITs and IISc to study and find solutions to technological challenges preventing the implementation of interoperability of set top boxes (STBs).
TRAI Chairman R.S. Sharma on Wednesday said that interoperability of STBs, wherein customers will be able to change cable or DTH operators without changing their STBs, has been high on the regulator’s agenda for long but technological factors have impeded progress. However, the regulator is hopeful of reaching a solution within a year’s time.
Safe from piracy
Mr.Sharma pointed out that security and the broadcasters’ need to keep content safe from piracy were a few factors leading to the delay.
“Because it is essentially a technology issue, we have brought on board professors from IITs and other institutions to look at it from a technology perspective,” he said.
