Salsgiver trials Freedom Jump OTT device
26 Apr 2012
US-based fiber optic network provider Salsgiver is to trial Amino's Freedom Jump OTT device as part of a premium service offering to their customers.
Under the gotlit.com brand, Freeport PA-based Salsgiver has rolled out a fiber network across an area north east of Pittsburgh, offering high quality broadband and phone services. Now the company is market-testing OTT-based entertainment services using Amino's "companion" device to deliver movie-on-demand services, catch-up TV, Internet music services, applications and social networking.
Amino's North American Director of Sales Telco Accounts, Dan Carufel said: "Ambitious fiber optic network operators like Salsgiver see OTT-based service delivery as a natural enhancement to their offerings. The Freedom Jump provides a powerful yet cost effective solution with a simple "HDMI in HDMI out" installation enabling operators to position the device as value-added service without the need of expensive 'truck-roll'."
Salsgiver CEO Loren Salsgiver added: "Our fiber optic network rollout is being very well received by customers who are delighted by the added value high speed access can deliver. The opportunity to deliver additional entertainment services - via OTT - is compelling and we're encouraged by the response from customers."
Salsgiver is deploying an additional 300 miles of fiber optic network in Armstrong and Indiana Counties to compliment their existing fiber optic network servicing the AK Valley which includes Freeport, Sarver, Natrona Heights, Brackenridge, Tarentum, Creighton, New Kensington and Springdale, PA.
