Telecom operators are increasingly looking to establish themselves in the streaming sector, which is a means of increasing revenues, among other things. But this turns out to be complicated, in particular because of the lack of dedicated platforms to help them in this regard.
MwareTV, a cloud-based television platform, has just revealed a new end-to-end TV solution for telecom operators and Internet service providers (ISPs) in Africa. The said solution, designed for cost-effective and rapid deployment in four weeks, includes around 100 channels with affordable African content. It is also fully customizable to represent the brand, logo and identity of each operator.
In this regard, Sander Kerstens the CEO of MwareTV declares “that at a time when telecommunications and streaming services in Africa are experiencing a sustained expansion, MwareTV is able to provide a complete end-to-end solution that offers a range of remarkable content to an ever-growing clientele. Developed to use the existing infrastructure and allow viewers to watch television on the device of their choice, it is a true “plug and play” solution unmatched in Africa today ”.
The new TV solution will meet the needs of large and medium-sized telecommunications companies and Internet service providers at low initial costs. This makes it possible to “thus give new services the best opportunity to reach the market quickly”.
In addition to being offered as an OTT service to mobile and fixed network customers, the platform can be used by telecom operators for an IPTV offer. Service providers can also select content from a wide variety of television genres, including news, sports, entertainment, movies, and religion. Mr Kerstens concluded by saying that MawareTV is currently ” in advanced talks ” with several major telecom operators and ISPs regarding the deployments. Details of the first customers will be revealed in the coming months.
