Forsway, and AiStream announced an innovative collaboration to bring content and critically needed connectivity to underserved communities around the world. Tapping AiStream Community Media Hub’s “edge” technology and Forsway’s hybrid Odin F-50 satellite broadband router, the partners are introducing a turn-key multicast content distribution solution to provide smart connectivity for bridging the digital divide in hard-to-reach regions with poor infrastructure and connectivity.
Forsway hybrid satellite broadband hardware and technology foster the most effective approach to extending broadband services, combining the benefits of satellite & terrestrial networks and eliminating the need for additional network infrastructure. AiStream and Forsway are together enabling deployment of SVOD services-at-scale for service providers without the requirement of a fixed or mobile network infrastructure.
“3 billion people around the globe still cannot access reliable internet services or content due to infrastructure deficiencies,” says Tobias Forsell, CEO at Forsway. We are excited to partner with AiStream to help solve a critical socio-economic challenge by enabling connectivity for large populations in regions lacking connectivity and supporting service providers to tap new revenue streams. “
“Our highly complementary expertise and technologies create significant customer value. AiStream digital media “edge” capabilities extend Forsway’s innovative portfolio of products and services designed to extend service providers’ and operators’ broadband reach in emerging markets.”
