Nagra, a Kudelski Group company, has exceeded 1.5 billion multi-digital rights management licenses served by its cloud-based security services platform for the Airtel Xstream app. Airtel Xstream is the digital entertainment platform of Bharti Airtel, India’s largest integrated telecom company. Built as an India-first video network for premium digital content, Airtel Xstream offers more than 10,000 shows and movies, and 350 live TV channels.   

Airtel (through its subsidiary Wynk) selected the Nagra platform and its multi-DRM solution in September 2019 to secure video streaming content on the Airtel Xstream app. This milestone marks a record number of multi-DRM licenses served by Nagra cloud.SSP.

“Our mission is to be India’s preferred destination for premium digital content,” said Sudipta Banerjee, chief technology officer at Wynk. “Given the massive surge in consumption of digital content in India, we need to enable secure delivery of content at scale. We are very pleased with the performance and scalability of Nagra cloud.SSP and with Nagra’s support which has ensured we’ve met this objective.”

“We congratulate Airtel Xstream on the impressive growth of their service and are privileged to be a part of this achievement,” said Nancy Goldberg, chief marketing officer, DTV, and executive vice president Kudelski Group. “This exciting milestone is a clear demonstration of how the right solutions can help reduce complexity and seamlessly scale and react to the needs of consumers so they can access and enjoy the content they love on any device, whenever they want – and in a highly secure environment.”
