Telco-focused entertainment solution provider Netgem has been selected by fibre optic telco ZEOP, a growing triple-play operator in the Indian Ocean, to deploy a 4K TV service to its customers on the island of Réunion. This agreement extends a long-standing partnership between the two companies to provide a TV solution as part of the operator’s triple-play proposition.
The Netgem-powered service, which will launch in September, will enable ZEOP to offer its customers access to a range of 4K services and programming. Part of the Océinde Group, ZEOP provides fibre optic triple-play services to consumers on Réunion Island.
Xavier Hermesse, CEO of ZEOP, said: “This new solution comes as a natural next step to our ongoing collaboration with Netgem for our TV service. 4K is a good example of a great innovation that fibre optic cables enable us to offer our customers. I look forward to launching 4K on ZEOP and bringing even more advanced television services to our customers.”
Sylvain Thevenot, Managing Director of Netgem added: “4K is indeed the next disruption in the TV industry. Whereas today 4K remains a premium product in most markets, we are very happy to support partners such as ZEOP as they make the latest TV technology available to all. ZEOP has been a fantastic partner, a challenger operator on its way to becoming a market leader, it’s great to be able to participate in that success with our TV-as-a-service solution for the connected home.”
