Turkey’s AirTies has won the contract to equip Faroese Telecom with its Air 5452 IP Gateway to roll out to its subscriber base as it upgrades to a new IPTV service. The Faroese telecommunications provider selected the AirTies gateway for the launch of their IPTV service which will be rolled out in 2012.
Faroese Telecom (FT) says it selected the AirTies gateways because they have been optimised to work in an advanced IPTV environment, with the ability to prioritise packets and reserve bandwidth regardless of whether it is video or data traffic.
According to Dan Olsen, Transmission manager at Faroese Telecom, “We selected the AirTies products because they are cosmetically pleasing and deliver excellent functionality and performance. We’re looking to provide our subscribers with more channels and a variety of different packages to meet different needs. We see the roll out of this IPTV service as an investment in the future that will give our customers a better user experience and the AirTies solution is a key ingredient.”
Established almost a Century ago, Faroese Telecom is in the middle of equipping the islands with digital terrestrial TV.
