MOBITV And Telia Carrier Offer Direct Connectivity For Streaming TV Apps
MOBITV, a global provider of app-based TV video delivery solutions, will use Telia Carrier’s global IP backbone to provide scalable capacity and connectivity for MOBITV’s pay TV operator customers across the U.S.
For a first-rate viewing experience, video consumers need consistently reliable, redundant, and robust connectivity to the app-based TV video provider’s data center. MOBITV has needed to meet this connectivity challenge as it expanded throughout the U.S. With Telia Carrier’s substantial U.S. network footprint, MOBITV customers can now get direct access to the MOBITV data center from more than 100 points of presence (PoPs) conveniently located throughout the U.S.
MOBITV said direct access to Telia Carrier’s scalable and redundant backbone delivers low-latency, high-capacity connectivity necessary for streaming video. This allows MOBITV operator customers “to benefit from flexibility in both cost and service level, while maintaining a high quality of experience for their end-users.”
“Connectivity is key to us when launching a relationship with a new customer. It can take months for that operator to explore potential partners, secure quotes, select and then wait for connectivity to be established, all of which slows their time to success as a MOBITV partner,” said Casey Fann, VP of operations, MOBITV.
“Now, with Telia Carrier and the diverse, secure, scalable access it’s offering our customers, the entire process is accelerated. We can refer customers to a partner we trust, confident that we’re extending our value and service levels along with fast access to the direct connectivity they need to take advantage of our services,” Fann added.
“We share MOBITV’s focus on value and customer service. By offering a predictable, three-tier option for connectivity from more than 100 POPs in the US, we are supporting MobiTV’s efforts to stand up new clients in a timely, efficient manner,” said Rob Pulkownik, director, market development, Telia Carrier. “Our partnership simplifies the connectivity aspect of MOBITV’s offering, decreasing time to market from a couple of months to a couple of weeks. This also helps MOBITV’s ISP and operator customers to accelerate service delivery to their customers.”
