Huawei, a leading global ICT solutions provider, and NetRange, a leading global provider of white labelled, turnkey Smart TV and OTT ecosystems, announced during IBC 2015 that they will work in partnership to create a joint OTT ecosystem.
The collaboration will enable Huawei and NetRange to create added value for the next generation of OTT services for telco operators and end users.
The two companies agreed to cooperate with a view to providing content-rich OTT ecosystem services, including linear TV streaming, video on demand and cloud gaming. The creation of this joint OTT ecosystem will especially benefit telco operators, who will be able to seamlessly integrate the high value OTT services on offer with their products.
The move comes as Huawei is aiming to launch its hosting service in Europe this year, following its successful rollout in the Middle East and in China. Keen to provide high quality OTT content, including linear TV, gaming and video on demand services, to the public worldwide together with its partners, Huawei believes that NetRange is the perfect partner to turn this project into another success story.
As OTT content continues to grow in popularity, the new collaboration will enable the two companies to help customers seize new opportunities in a rapidly changing environment, by creating an offering tailored to their needs.
