Brazil: Città Telecom chooses SmartLabs

September 10, 2021

SmartLabs, a provider of multi-screen, multi-network solutions for video streaming, has been chosen by Brazilian ISP Città Telecom for OTT provision and mobile applications. The solution will be used by the company’s set top box customers and mobile users.

Città Telecom has chosen SmartLabs after extensive technical testing and the installation is set to be completed in September 2021.

Eduardo Campos, SmartLabs’ Sales Director for the LatAm region, commented: “OTT is mandatory right now – everybody wants to have it. The challenge in Brazil is that content providers are not allowing the medium sized service providers to broadcast their content using mobile devices yet because for the time being they are prioritising their own applications such as Disney Plus, HBO, and DirecTV. There are negotiations underway so that service providers will be able to broadcast content that is on the Set-Top Boxes on SmartTVs and Mobile Apps in the future. It means forward thinking companies are looking for mobile solutions for iOS and Android.”

Eduardo continues: “SmartLabs can provide a scalable, flexible and stable solution for operators in Brazil in what is a challenging and price sensitive market with the US$ rocketing. We are thrilled with the installation at Città Telecom and we look forward to working closely with ISPs in the region to provide excellence in video services and cost-effective solutions,” Campos added.
