Mongolia's SKYmedia has turned to Anevia to supply an OTT video-delivery solution for SKYmedia's new Sky GO service.

skymedia 18 june 2019Based in Ulaanbaatar, the SKYmedia group provides a wide range of capabilities including mobile phone and broadband data connectivity.

SKYmedia has partnered with Anevia since 2014 when it chose Anevia's origin-packager and content delivery network solutions. The existing platform has now been renewed and expanded with a latest-generation packager, NEA-DVR, as well as NEA-CDN, plus an Anevia Genova encoder. The combined result is a full end-to-end OTT video-delivery solution that will power the 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, the firms said.

"TV operators in Asia are setting up increasingly ambitious OTT solutions,” said Anevia APAC sales director, Antoine Hugoo. “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."
