Seeking an innovative solution that can enable IPTV/OTT TV content to remote villages with no infrastructure and only 2G network. This is relevant for many areas in the Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh, India and Thailand where SingTel is active. This can be used for both commercial and educational content.

What is OTT and IPTV?Edit

OTT (Over the Top Technology) and IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) are two growing technology mediums in the media distribution industry that are in place in the market, yet not being used to their full capacity by advertisers or the critical mass.

Both are systems through which television services are delivered using the Internet, instead of the traditional terrestrial, satellite signal and cable television formats. However there are several differences between the two, mainly that IPTV is delivered over a service provider’s own infrastructure, while OTT comes over the public Internet.
