Netgem had formed a software agreement with ZTE, an international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, for the delivery of complete TV solutions to telecoms operators in Latin America.
Beginning in the second quarter of 2017 by establishing a partnership in Mexico with fiber operator TotalPlay, ZTE will deliver TV set-top boxes embedded with Netgem middleware software. TotalPlay is one the fastest growing companies in Mexico that has deployed 50,000 km of fibre optic cable in more than 20 cities in Mexico, and provides unique double and triple play services to 600,000 subscribers.
Netgem will continue to directly maintain and license its software platform to its long term client TotalPlay, both to the existing subscriber base and for all new set-top boxes that will be delivered by ZTE to TotalPlay in the coming years.
Joseph Haddad, CEO of Netgem commented: “This agreement with ZTE creates an opportunity for Netgem to widen the distribution of its software platform to new territories and helps TotalPlay develop its fast growing business.”
