MOBITV will utilize Telia Carrier's global IP backbone to provide scalable capacity and connectivity for MOBITV's pay TV operator customers across the United States. MOBITV customers can now get direct access to the MOBITV data center from more than 100 points of presence (PoPs) located throughout the United States.

Direct access to Telia Carrier's scalable and redundant backbone is intended to provide the low-latency, high-capacity connectivity required for streaming video.

"Connectivity is key to us when launching a relationship with a new customer. It can take months for that operator to explore potential partners, secure quotes, select and then wait for connectivity to be established, all of which slows their time to success as a MOBITV partner," said Casey Fann, VP of operations, MOBITV. "Now, with Telia Carrier and the diverse, secure, scalable access it's offering our customers, the entire process is accelerated. We can refer customers to a partner we trust, confident that we're extending our value and service levels along with fast access to the direct connectivity they need to take advantage of our services."

"We share MOBITV's focus on value and customer service. By offering a predictable, three-tier option for connectivity from more than 100 POPs in the U.S., we are supporting MOBITV's efforts to stand up new clients in a timely, efficient manner," said Rob Pulkownik, director, market development, Telia Carrier. "Our partnership simplifies the connectivity aspect of MOBITV's offering, decreasing time to market from a couple of months to a couple of weeks. This also helps MOBITV's ISP and operator customers to accelerate service delivery to their customers."
