Salsgiver trials Amino Freedom OTT

April 26, 2012

US-based fibre optic network provider Salsgiver is to trial Amino’s Freedom Jump OTT device as part of a premium service offering to their customers.

Under the brand, Freeport PA-based Salsgiver has rolled out a fibre network across an area north east of Pittsburgh, offering high quality broadband and phone services. Now the company is market-testing OTT-based entertainment services using Amino’s “companion” device to deliver movie-on-demand services, catch-up TV, Internet music services, applications and social networking.

Amino’s North American Director of Sales Telco Accounts, Dan Carufel said: “Ambitious fibre optic network operators like Salsgiver see OTT-based service delivery as a natural enhancement to their offerings. The Freedom Jump provides a powerful yet cost effective solution with a simple “HDMI in HDMI out” installation enabling operators to position the device as value-added service without the need of expensive ‘truck-roll’.”

Salsgiver is deploying an additional 300 miles of fibre optic network in Armstrong and Indiana Counties to compliment their existing fibre optic network servicing the AK Valley which includes Freeport, Sarver, Natrona Heights, Brackenridge, Tarentum, Creighton, New Kensington and Springdale, PA.
