GO Malta taps Edgeware for multiscreen TV

Service provider GO Malta has tapped Edgeware to provide its CDN and Origin platform to enable it to deliver multi-screen services.

The use of Edgeware’s CDN and origin solutions will enable GO to provide mobile and multiscreen services with features such as ad insertion and subtitling technology, according to the tech company.

GO has been an Edgeware customer for some time, having deployed its IPTV solution in 2010

“To effectively build our offering, we rely on high quality solutions that can cope with up to 100,000 simultaneous streams. No other hardware servers could deliver the reliability we asked for and Edgeware has delivered on promise in every aspect. Edgeware also presents an end-to-end solution, which means there’s no need to go elsewhere. It’s a one-stop shop with no risk and that’s very important to us as we continue innovating TV,” said Chris Attard, senior manager of TV systems at GO.

“As a small and agile customer, we often push boundaries which sometimes present challenges. However, with Edgeware, we’ve always had a very open dialogue and their teams have always been spot on in the service they have provided. Edgeware has been a very important partner in our quest to create TV services that customers long for. Nine years of collaboration and a new ambitious project certainly proves that we’re a happy customer.”

Johan Bolin, chief product and technology officer at Edgeware said: “GO has clearly demonstrated its commitment to constantly elevate its TV offering and provide services that its customers love. This has already been a long and fruitful partnership, and we’re delighted to be able to continue supporting GO in its journey towards the next era of TV.”
