MOBITV was the first company to bring live and on-demand TV to mobile devices. They distribute app-based pay TV—live, on-demand, streaming and recorded programming— across multiple devices, eliminating set-top boxes. The platform is built to allow for cost-effective growth by building a network of relationships and connections to telco providers across the country.
Direct access to both content delivery networks and operators’ networks is critical to MOBITV’s success. One of the biggest challenges these operators face is what they call “The Last Mile”— the connection to a major hub in order to be supported by MOBITV.
Leveraging Digital Realty’s 250 Williams Street data center, MOBITV is in close proximity to Atlanta’s connectivity hub for low-latency content distribution, thereby keeping costs down for their customers and network operators.
This case study from Digital Realty explores the potential of easy, cost-efficient connection to carriers for optimal performance and lowest latency, customized connectivity options with the ability to ramp cross-connects up or down, and a scalable, flexible IT environment.
