Minerva Networks, the leading provider of open IPTV services management platforms, announced today that they have added three new channel partners to support the growing number of installations of its iTVManager platform, the most deployed IPTV solution worldwide.

ITS in Costa Rica, LOOK in the Dominican Republic, and Union Electrica in Colombia have recently signed system integrator agreements with Minerva. The new partnerships will bring IPTV services to these Latin America regions quickly and cost-effectively, drastically reducing operational costs to operators.

Minerva is building a worldwide network of qualified system integrators who can enable broadband operators to successfully deploy IPTV services with Minerva certified ecosystems. Minerva's ecosystem partners offer complementary components -- from set-boxes, conditional access systems, video servers and value-added applications -- to the Company's IPTV service management and delivery software.

"We are very pleased to join the Minerva Channel Partner program. Excellent support, a rich feature set and seamless integration with a variety of third-party components is what we stress when we present iTVManager to our customers," says H. Alfredo Tejada, President of LOOK.

"Our new Latin America regional channel partners will enable a host of companies, including telephone companies and communications service providers to resorts and housing developments, to offer triple-play bundles," stated Mauro Bonomi, CEO of Minerva Networks. "ITS, LOOK and Union Electrica will help make IPTV a success in their respective regions."
