AIS taps Ateme for video packaging and storage

Cable TV, DTH, IPTV and OTT technology provider Ateme has provided a just-in-time packaging and storage solution for AIS,  Thailand’s biggest telco and mobile operator. 

The AIS OTT platform, which has over three million subscribers, delivers VOD content and 200 live channels to audiences across the country. With the previous origin/packager solution reaching end-of-life, AIS was seeking a new ;ive and VOD solution, according to Ateme.

The company chose the tech outfit’s NEA-DVR cloud-ready solution with embedded distributed storage (EDS).

According to Ateme, the storage system and cluster architecture will enable AIS to scale up its streaming or storage capacity when needed, to meet growing demand and enable continued subscriber growth.

The tech outfit said that EDS, designed specifically for video, enables the storage of large amounts of video and provides unlimited recordings to AIS viewers, on any screen including smartphones, tablets, personal computers and set-top boxes.

With dual-site architecture, NEA-DVR is deployed in two different AIS locations and improves the availability and resilience of the system..

Visut Assawanonthawong, head of VAS-IPTV operation and P

planning unit, AIS, said: “With Ateme’s state-of-the art technology now in place, we are able to deliver both live and VOD content to our audiences on any device to ensure we remain Thailand’s biggest telco. The Just-in-Time packaging offers us a range of benefits, including reduced bandwidth costs and storage requirements without compromising our delivered services.”

Alexandre Arnodin, VP delivery solutions, Ateme, said: “Our unique storage solution is a key differentiator from competitors, improving storage density and performance, compared to NAS, leading to OPEX and rack space savings. With our next generation OTT delivery technology, AIS is now confident that it can scale in line with its growing subscriber base and continue to provide both current and prospective customers with high-quality viewing experiences.”
