Based in Ulaanbaatar, the SKYmedia group provides a wide range of capabilities including mobile phone and broadband data connectivity.
SKYmedia has partnered successfully with Anevia since 2014 when it chose Anevia’s origin-packager and CDN solutions. The existing platform has now been renewed and expanded with a latest-generation packager, NEA-DVR (www.anevia.com/product/cloud-dvr-solution), as well as NEA-CDN (www.anevia.com/product/video-cdn), plus an Anevia Genova encoder. The combined result is a full end-to-end OTT video-delivery solution that will power SKYmedia’s new Sky GO service, scheduled for launch this month.
This new investment comes at a time of healthy growth in demand for IP-related services. The total number of Internet subscribers in Mongolia has increased by more than 60% over the past five years and take-up of IPTV subscriptions has grown by 116% in the same period. Anevia’s end-to-end solution meets SKYmedia’s need for scalability, accompanying its growth in the number of subscribers. It is also part of an open ecosystem that integrates easily with products from third-party vendors – in this case, Mirada’s Iris multiscreen service platform and EZDRM’s digital rights management solution.
Anevia’s APAC Sales Director, Antoine Hugoo says: “TV operators in Asia are setting up increasingly ambitious OTT solutions. Even in remote areas such as Mongolia, there is strong competition and a need for differentiation; operators require a solid OTT service to keep their customers. We are pleased that SKYmedia has renewed its trust in Anevia for the launch of its new Sky GO service. Our strategy has always been to establish long-term partnerships with our customers, from initial concept right through to renewal and expansion.”
