Oregan Networks establishes Latin American HQ in Mexico City
July 11, 2013
Oregan Networks, a supplier of hybrid Digital TV software for telecoms and broadcast operators, has announced its further expansion into the Latin American market, with the opening of a new regional headquarters in Mexico City which complements its existing presence in Argentina.
The new location will cater for the specific technology requirements of local broadcasters, where the industry-wide trends towards an upgraded consumer experience, greater service coverage, including unmanaged IP (Internet Protocol) networks, and reduced capital expenditure on CPE (Consumer Premises Equipment) have reached the critical mass and generated a strong demand for new technologies.
Mario Betancourt, has joined Oregan as regional sales director, with a dual remit of growing the customer base and establishing a technical excellence center for the region. Mario joins Oregan following a successful track-record and expertise across the telecoms infrastructure and Pay TV supply chains at Ericsson and Motorola.
Milya Timergaleyeva, VP Market Strategy said, ‘The rapidly growing rates of connectivity, as well as the ever expanding options for purchasing and consuming media have sparked an unprecedented consumer interest in cloud-based video and applications. This, in turn, has catalysed demand for middleware and systems, that allow operators to deploy Over the Top video in conjunction with traditional broadcast systems quickly. Moreover, the nature of the evolving Pay TV market also dictates the need for software solutions that can give a feature uplift to the currently deployed devices, as well as laying a future-proof middleware foundation inside the next generation CPE. Oregan will continue working with ecosystem partners to deliver bespoke cross-platform solutions, that enable operators to address these challenges in a cost effective manner.’
