Migration to Ministra PRO: challenges and benefits

Migration to Ministra PRO: challenges and benefits

Ministra PRO is a modern cross-platform middleware that allows operators to conveniently manage services while providing users with an up-to-date service. The platform has a number of pros compared to the already familiar to IPTV/OTT service providers Ministra TV Platform. In this article we are going to cover the advantages operators get by making the Ministra PRO migration.

 

Ministra PRO benefits

1. Providing a demo version. The operator can pre-test the platform, understand the interface and functionality, and make sure that the software is suitable for them. For this purpose, Infomir provides clients with a demo version of the Ministra PRO for one month. If required, the demo can be extended for a further month.

 

2. Ability to brand the UI. Unlike the Ministra TV Platform, with Ministra PRO operators can make the UI unique using their brand attributes.

 

3. Database relocation. Operators who have previously used Ministra 5.6.x, should find the middleware migration process relatively easy, fast and convenient. For example, you don't have to worry about manual relocation of databases as this is done automatically. Infomir experts have developed a convenient content migration strategy that allows operators to perform the IPTV platform transition to Ministra PRO in 24 hours. To move databases, the operator needs to provide a Ministra 5.6.x database dump or access to their database. This will move accounts, TV channels, VoD, radio, and tariff plans.

 

4. Ministra PRO compatibility with third-party solutions. The platform has a modular architecture that allows for integration with ChargeBee, Flussonic, billing systems, DRM, search engines and other third-party components. Ongoing support and software updates ensure the smooth operation of the platform and provide operators with access to the latest features and services.

 

5. Even load distribution between servers. Ministra PRO analyzes information about the availability of servers for streaming and selects the best option for connecting each client. This allows you to evenly distribute the load between servers.

 

6. Fast entry. Ministra PRO is deployed as quickly as possible (within 48 hours), allows operators to use the most popular platforms (Tizen, WebOS, IOS, Android), and is integrated with billing, streaming, and DRM solutions. All this (in addition to the absence of special requirements for servers) allows for the launching of a  service on Ministra PRO in the shortest possible time.

 

7. Technical support at all stages. Infomir experts provide operators with all necessary documentation, help to understand the operation of the middleware using the example demo, deploy and customize the platform, and provide any required information and assistance after the service launch.

 

Benefits of Ministra PRO for end users

Familiar classic UI for large screens on all platforms. Ministra TV end-users had access to the Classic TV application, but it only worked on MAG Linux set-top boxes. Ministra PRO however uses the new REACT application with a similar interface. Its main advantage is that users are not limited in their choice of device: they can watch the operator's content on MAG Linux, MAG Android TV, Tizen, WebOS, Android TV and tvOS set-top boxes.

 

User experience improvements. With Ministra PRO, end users have access to the Ministra Player application with an interface optimized for mobile devices (IOS and Android). This allows them to view the operator’s content not only at home on large screens, but also anywhere they have access to the Internet.

 

Catch up TV function (archive). Ministra PRO functionality allows operators to provide their customers with an opportunity to return to programs that have already ended. Subscribers do not have to worry about missing a soccer match, concert, or a new episode of their favorite TV series: they can all be watched at a time convenient to the user. Usually, the archive can cover the depth of broadcasting for a week and a half but this parameter can be customized.

 

Algorithm of transition from Ministra TV Platform to Ministra PRO:

1. Infomir provides the operator with information on recommended hardware for Ministra PRO deployment

2. The operator prepares the required number of servers

3. The operator provides Infomir experts with the URL to access the platform

4. Infomir experts deploy the platform within 48 hours

 

Obstacles to Ministra PRO transfer

Ministra PRO functionality allows operators to broadcast TV programs on different platforms. Each platform may have its own set of requirements for the stream format. Accordingly, the operator will need to purchase the appropriate software and hardware to transcode content and ensure proper streaming quality.

 

The main challenges in migrating to Ministra PRO are related to software and hardware upgrades, which will entail both one-time capital investments and ongoing operational costs. The operator will have to update the software and maintain the hardware which will require financial and time investment.

 

The requirements for the equipment necessary for efficient and stable operation of the platform depend on the number of subscribers to the service. If the audience grows, the operator can use either vertical scaling of equipment (increase the capacity of each server) or horizontal scaling (increase the number of servers). The second method further improves the resiliency of the overall system.

 

Ministra PRO is a cross-platform solution that allows operators to provide their customers with the best user experience. Infomir experts will help you migrate from Ministra TV Platform as easily and quickly as possible, deploy the infrastructure, and provide technical support. Migrating to Ministra PRO will make your service more convenient, flexible, and modern.

 

The Infomir team continues to work on the platform and plans to provide Ministra PRO users — small and medium-sized operators — with the same capabilities that are available to leading telecommunication companies.
