COMSovereign’s RFE Receives Google Certification for Android TV-Powered IPTV Box Designed for Large-Scale Communication Service Provider and Enterprise Customers

  • New Symphony Allegro IPTV Set Top Box Enables Operators to Build and Deliver Customized Entertainment and Communications Services for their Subscribers

DALLAS — COMSovereign Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: COMS) (“COMSovereign” or the “Company”), a U.S.-based developer of 4G LTE Advanced and 5G Communication Systems and Solutions today announced that its RF Engineering & Energy Resource (“RFE”) unit received Google’s “Android TV Operator Tier” certification for its new IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) device. Android TV Operator Tier certification enables service providers and system integrators to completely customize the Android TV software experience including user interface, features and functionality and provide customer support.

The new Symphony Allegro IPTV Set Top Box was designed to industry standards by RFE as a new hardware solution for COMSovereign’s Global Telcom business unit which serves public and private telecommunication network operators. The Symphony Allegro IPTV set top box allows Communication Service Providers (“CSPs) of all types including cable and fiber, digital content owners as well as operators of large hospitality or residential facilities, to deploy a robust, feature-rich, and highly secure, streaming device to its end users instead of relying on traditional set-top control boxes. Because RFE is Android TV Operator Tier certified, it will be allowed to fully customize its IPTV solution for each provider, ensuring a “one-of-a-kind” service offering. RFE has begun initial manufacturing of 5,000 units which it expects to have available for sale to customers starting in early December.

“As a specialist in the design and manufacture of unique, high-performance communications hardware, Symphony Allegro represents a new and powerful way for us further enable our large network of communications service providers to reach and engage with their customers,” said Thomas Mansfield, CEO of RFE. “Android TV Operator Tier certification is a significant achievement, providing us with an opportunity to capitalize on the tremendous growth in streaming and over-the-top media services. We are looking forward to working closely with content streaming providers and operators to develop and deploy highly customized and uniquely experiences to their subscribers.”
