Edgeware Expands in Latin America

Edgeware, a Swedish video delivery technology vendor, has opened a sales and support office in Mexico City, Mexico as part of its expansion in Latin America.

“We have seen an increased interest in Latin America for content delivery network (CDN) solutions. Services such as multiscreen, cloud DVR, and time shift TV are being evaluated and deployed by most of the major pay-TV service providers in the region,” said Joachim Roos, CEO at Edgeware.

The company has appointed Rafael Lemarroy, senior solutions architect, to the new office. With a decade of experience in the industry, Lemarroy most recently served as sales engineer at Cisco Systems. “I look forward to accelerating the company’s growth and market leadership,” said Lemarroy.

The company said that the new sales and support office, located in Mexico City, will enable it to address local market challenges and better equip operators in the region to deploy new services.

Edgeware earlier in May 2015 announced that TVI (Televisión Internacional), part of Multimedios and Televisa Group, the largest cable operator in Latin America, had chosen its VCP Edge solution to roll out a network-based catch-up TV and cloud DVRservice. Edgeware's VCP Edge solution enables Multimedios to deliver these services, along with its existing video on demand (VOD) offering, from a unified delivery platform to all devices.

"Finding a solution that would meet our customers' demand for premium live and on-demand content on any device, with a high quality of experience and in a cost-effective and scalable way was a huge challenge," said Jorge Arturo Diaz Cardenas, CTO at Multimedios. "Unlike other solutions that would force us to duplicate our infrastructure to serve our existing STBs while adding multiscreen clients, the Edgeware VCP Edge provides a single platform for all services and devices."
