UXP Systems and Ericsson Collaborate to Power New User Access Journeys and Universal Profiles for IPTV and Next Generation Services
6 January, 2015
Collaboration enables operators to onboard OTT users and create universal user profiles for seamless, personalized experiences
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – January 06, 2015 – UXP Systems is collaborating with Ericsson to enable operators to deploy the MINT Unified Services Platform on Ericsson Mediaroom IPTV platforms. With MINT, operators can simplify next generation user access and onboarding, and create universal profiles for personalized experiences, allowing them to deliver engaging viewing experiences for customers. This combined solution enhances the operator’s ability to monetize next generation services, provides a consistent, personalized user experience across all screens, and maximizes their competitive posture in the markets they serve.

MINT works across both Ericsson Mediaroom and Ericsson Mediaroom Reach platforms today, providing a converged user experience across all devices. These new capabilities will:

• Add flexible User Access Management capabilities for frictionless customer journeys
• Embrace new user options supporting Freemium models and Guest Accounts without changes to existing BSS/OSS infrastructure
• Provide Universal User Profiles, delegated access and hierarchy management for all members of the household across all services and devices
• Provide all of these benefits to new and existing Mediaroom solutions today
• Be available through Ericsson globally

“The collaboration between Ericsson Mediaroom and UXP Systems’ MINT Unified Services Platform empowers Ericsson to provide operators with the most compelling TV services. Personalization will be at the forefront of the viewing experience, allowing users to create their personal profiles, receive video on demand recommendations, and blend cloud services into their TV profiles,” said Ben Huang, Vice President of Marketing of Product Area Mediaroom at Ericsson.


“Ericsson Mediaroom is leading the way in terms of personalization and integrating traditional content with over-the-top content. However, many operators still don’t have the flexibility in their back-office subscriber platforms to accommodate OTT user onboarding, create user profiles and integrate personal cloud services into IPTV,” said Jim MacDonald, VP Sales & Marketing at UXP Systems. “By combining the MINT Unified Services Platform with the world class Ericsson Mediaroom platform, operators can transform offerings and provide integrated, user-centric experiences across any screen.”

Integrated Offering Delivers Next Generation, Personalized Services Now

UXP Systems’ MINT Unified Services Platform provides a framework for enabling the complete management of user profiles with the operator’s existing BSS/OSS and Identity Management solutions via its User Lifecycle Management engine. An extensive library covers hundreds of use cases to manage the full lifecycle of a user’s profile from onboarding to personalization. A second key module, the MINT Multiservice Gateway, allows the binding of any network service to these user profiles, allowing the operator to create and manage a 360-degree view of every user across all services, enabling an integrated and personalized user experience on any screen.

Ericsson Mediaroom is the industry-leading IPTV platform, deployed by 66 global operators in 34 million set-top boxes. The latest Ericsson Mediaroom release elevates the TV viewing experience, delivering a host of new consumer-oriented capabilities which empower operators to deliver the highest quality live, video on demand (VOD) and time-shifted television experiences. New features include "Restart TV" as a core experience; unified search functionality offering consumers unparalleled levels of simplicity when discovering Pay TV content; an enhanced user interface that maximizes full-screen viewing; and a new, visually rich channel guide. Ericsson Mediaroom Reach, born out of Ericsson’s acquisition of Azuki Systems earlier this year, enables the deployment of over-the-top video to any device.

UXP Systems Extends Leadership in Driving User Centric Experiences with the Launch of MINT v3.7
11 September, 2014
New release extends library of User Lifecycle Management processes for user and household profiles; sets a common foundation for user-centric Next Generation TV and Connected Life initiatives.
TORONTO, ONTARIO – September 11, 2014 – UXP Systems (www.uxpsystems.com), the industry’s leader in enabling seamless user centric experiences across services and screens for operators, is pleased to announce that MINT Software Suite v3.7 will be available for its existing and new customers in September, 2014.

“Operators are continuing to realize that the need to create and manage universal user and household profiles is foundational to both next generation video, and the consumer internet of things”, said Jay Deen, CTO of UXP Systems. “In fact, federating services through a unified user profile is the key to a seamless and personalized experience across all screens”

“With this release of the MINT Software Suite v3.7, we are further enabling operators to deliver on the promise of providing user-centric entertainment experiences across both operator and 3rd party cloud services”.

The MINT Software Suite v3.7 supports an extended library of user enrollment flows, a looser coupling of user profiles to billing accounts to support an extended set of use cases, and streamlined customer journeys to get universal profiles in use across video and broadband services. Moreover, enhancements to log-mining using UXP Systems’ UXDR™ technology (User Experience Data Records) provides user-level operator analytics, user-centric recommendations, and individually targeted advertising through UXP Systems’ solution partner vendors.

This updated version of the MINT v3.7 Software suite includes:

• An expanded out-of-the box User Lifecycle Management process library to enable individual user and household profiles across devices and services
• Full de-coupling of user profiles from billing accounts, allowing for trial users, moving of user profiles between accounts and multiple accounts-per user scenarios
• A Service Application Module management interface, to view and manage all services integrated to the MINT Software Suite to deliver user-centric experiences
• Enhancements to the MINT AnyService SDK, allowing operators and partners to register any service to a MINT profile, making the service ‘profile aware'
Existing UXP Systems’ customers will adopt and leverage the MINT v3.7 platform to update their existing next generation service initiatives, supporting more use cases in the creation of individual TV Profiles for users, and more seamless access to core and cloud services as the Consumer Internet of Things emerges, resulting in a more competitive stance for the operator, as well as the enablement of new monetization models for next generation services.

About UXP Systems

UXP Systems’ award winning MINT Software Suite enables operators like TELUS, Rogers, Columbus Communications and Cable Bahamas to differentiate their services by enabling converged, user-centric experiences that deliver on the promise of next generation video and the connected life to their customers. By combining its unique User Lifecycle Management to implement user and household profiles over existing legacy paradigms, and a Multiservice Gateway to make any service profile-aware across all devices, MINT transforms the operator user experience.
