South Indian MSOs to form Federation

Monday, November 24th, 2014

According to a report by Indian Television, MSOs in Southern India are planning to form a South Indian Federation. The federation will launch officially in December in Kerala.

The group is looking at developing common platforms using a single middleware in order to reduce the cost of providing value added services. “A technical team has already been formed for this and they are working on getting the service in place,” Sudhish Kumar, executive director of Sagar E Technologies, told Indian Television. The MSOs see offering broadband as the most promising way to generate additional revenue.

The MSOs together provide services in Bengaluru, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala via 20 headends to around 3 million subscribers.
