TSTT-Amplia launches multi-tenant Android TV solution from Zappware
Today, TSTT-Amplia is launching its Android TV solution in a multi-tenant setup, ready to serve its own customers as well as other service providers across The Caribbean.
Lisa Agard – Managing Director of Amplia says: “Amplia is delighted to be the first to bring this state-of-the-art TV technology from Zappware to the people of Trinidad and Tobago, and we look forward to marketing the solution to other operators in the Caribbean.”
Patrick Vos, CEO of Zappware elaborates: “We see a lot of traction for Android TV deployments because service providers want to be a super-aggregator and, as we know, Android TV facilitates this. With our NeXX 4.0 solution, all relevant content is presented in a very user-centric way. The recommendations and all the desired content are usually just one icon away. From a back-office point of view, the extra step Amplia took, is to operate the Zappware solution in a multi-tenant way to address multiple service providers in the region.”
