Entone Lands New APAC Customer

CUPERTINO, California — Entone, Inc., a leading provider of Hybrid TV and Connected Home solutions, announced today that Skymedia, a subsidiary of Skytel, one of Mongolia’s largest mobile operator, is deploying its Kamai 510 Hybrid Media Player to deliver advanced IPTV services.

With more than a quarter of the nation’s mobile phone market, Skymedia is continuing to expand into IPTV. Since 2012, Skymedia has been expanding their DSL and fiber networks to enable the delivery of video and IP services to a growing population of over 2.9 million people.

“Deploying IPTV has its unique challenges. Offering IPTV services in rugged and remote areas of Mongolia makes quality, stability and support especially important,” stated D. Byambatseren, CEO at Skymedia. “Entone has helped us to reduce our CAPEX and OPEX during this IPTV rollout. Entone’s hybrid solutions enable us to differentiate with services such as VOD and nPVR, while also allowing us to launch new emerging services in the future without additional truck rolls. Entone’s world-class support has also been extremely valuable.”

Entone’s Kamai 510 hybrid media player is a powerful and flexible platform for IPTV and Hybrid TV services. Kamai offers a carrier-grade 5 GHz Wi-Fi option for wireless whole-home HD video distribution.

“We are proud to be partnering with Skymedia as we continue our expansion in the APAC region,” said Mark Evensen, founder and CTO of Entone. “We look forward to supporting Skymedia with their IPTV deployment, and as they launch new services in the future.”

Skymedia’s deployment further validates Entone’s global market leadership position in IPTV and Hybrid TV solutions. Over 150 of the world’s leading service operators are deployed with Entone to support their IP and Hybrid TV video services.
