June 6, 2017
Thaicom has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Huawei Technologies and Starcor Media Technologies for the development of an OTT platform in Thailand.
The companies have partnered to create value-added services for the next generation OTT platform for enterprise, educational, government and telecom sectors in Thailand. Under the MOU the companies agreed to develop content-rich OTT ecosystem services, including TV streaming and VoD. The creation of this joint OTT ecosystem will benefit telecom operators in Thailand, who will be able to seamlessly integrate the OTT services with their products and deliver their contents to multi-screen devices such as smart TVs, smartphones, tablets and notebooks.
Patompob Suwansiri, Chief Commercial Officer of Thaicom Public Company Limited, said, “We would like to thank Huawei and Starcor for their trust in us to provide the satellite capacity and infrastructure needed to deploy OTT services in the near future in Thailand. We are confident that the partnership with Huawei and Starcor will enable us to continue to provide the satellite capacity needed to fuel the new digital TV ecosystem. The OTT platform represents a new service for Thaicom; it will complement our existing satellite platform and carry it into the new digital era.”
