Ericsson Drives the MultiScreen TV Experience at CommunicAsia
“We are witnessing rapid infrastructure changes in the Asia Pacific market as consumer desire throughout the region shapes today’s television into an ‘anytime, anywhere’ experience. New devices and consumer behavior is driving up video traffic and putting increased bandwidth pressures on networks,” said Staffan Pehrson, Vice President and Head of Solution Area TV, Ericsson.
“Digital penetration in the APAC region is set to rise dramatically over the next five years, which presents a number of challenges to operators; not only in the acquisition and processing of high quality content but also in the management and efficient delivery of large volumes of video, media and audio across multiple platforms to multiple devices. Ericsson’s expertise in delivering next generation TV solutions to customers in the Asia Pacific market is invaluable as we enable them to bring the desired Individual TV Experience to consumers.”
