SmartLabs expands its Brazilian customer base with Città Telecom

SmartLabs, the leading provider of multi-screen, multi-network solutions for video streaming, today announces that it 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, says: “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 Smart TVs and Mobile Apps in the future. It means forward thinking companies are looking for mobile solutions for iOS and Android.”

SmartLabs has extensive technical experience in providing solutions for OTT, Smart TVs and mobile applications so this installation is the start of a longer-term partnership with Città Telecom’s and a strategic move for the ISP’s future growth strategy. Additionally, the ability to provide OTT provision enables Città Telecom to operate across a larger region of Brazil than it has done previously.

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.”
