The wireless quadruple play service will be the first of its kind in the world according to both companies. The new service is offering voice, data and television to the home and mobile devices over a hybrid broadcast and 4G wireless network. This hybrid television component of the offering is based on Sezmi’s television solution, which is already available in the U.S. market. The Malaysian system is being developed and deployed by Sezmi in partnership with YTL Communications and will establish Malaysia as a digital broadcasting hub for the Asia Pacific region.
Through the partnership, Sezmi will design and manage the build-out of the digital TV network, and provide the platform and professional services to deploy the entirety of technologies and systems required to operate the hybrid television service in a manner that is integrated with a broad range of consumer devices. Sezmi will also support YTL through existing content partnerships to deliver a rich and complete TV offering inclusive of live television, on-demand movies and shows and Internet video.
