NPlay 2017

NPlay 2017 - Pontis introduces product for video and OTT solutions based entirely on the cloud

Ariel Torres, engineering manager at Pontis Technologies, said that Pontis Cloud TV differs because all infrastructure requirements, such as signal encryption and management logic, are provided in the cloud. He compared it to the previous solution, On Premise, which was aimed at operators who already have their own network. "But the Cloud option is for the incomers", he emphasized, because they are new, complex technologies, with respect to the assembly of the ecosystem.

"These solutions allow an accompaniment with flexible business models in terms of investment with low Capex, growing as the number of subscribers grows", he added. The architecture of the platform is made up of three pillars: Media Prep, everything that is metadata; Media Hub, real intelligence of the solution with control of devices and services in addition to the business rules that are applied in each service; and Media Go, which are the applications to be used by devices supported in the platform.

But the companies raise objections to the contest rules due to the price of the spectrum, the obligation of a social rate and the allocation of the upper part of the 3.6 GHz - 3.7 GHz band to Arsat, the Argentine state operator. This week is the deadline to apply, but operators say it will be "difficult" for them to participate.

Following merger announcement between Echostar and Dish, Hughes consolidates with new capacity in the region

Hugo Frega, General Manager for the Caribbean and Latin America of Hughes, shared the company's progress in the region after the launch of the Jupiter 3 satellite. The manager also highlighted the synergies with the Argentine operator Arsat and the opportunities that the company sees in that country as a result of the 5G tender and the recent merger between Echostar - the group to which Hughes belongs - and Dish, a process that will give rise to a global terrestrial and satellite wireless connectivity giant. In this context, Hughes is positioned as one of the main references in the sector in the region, both for its leadership in the manufacturing and distribution of terminals and gateways, and for its fleet of satellites and high-density payloads with coverage over the American continent.
