Stockholm, Sweden(11 May 2015)
STOCKHOLM and HONG KONG –May 11, 2015–Edgeware, the leader in distributed video delivery, today announces a new sales and support office in Hong Kong as part of a continuing effort to better serve current and future customers in the Asia Pacific. As part of the expansion, Matthew Ho, director of solution architecture, will join the Edgeware team in the region. Peter Löfling, sales director at Edgeware, will head the new office. Löfling has more than 22 years of experience and has been with the company since 2008.
The Hong Kong office enables Edgeware to design and implement solutions to address the specific challenges and needs of customers in the Asia Pacific. According to a recent Digital TV Research report, the Asia Pacific online TV and video revenues, over fixed broadband networks, will reach $10.19 billion in 2020, up from half a billion recorded in 2010 and $2.68 billion in 2013. With the new office, Edgeware is now better positioned to help operators succeed in this expanding market while reducing opex and capex.
“Edgeware is uniquely positioned to address the scalability issues that operators in Asia Pacific will experience as they add subscribers and look to offer more services,” said Joachim Roos, CEO at Edgeware. “Our Video Consolidation Platform (VCP) is the only cost effective solution that will enable operators to scale to meet demands while not compromising quality.”
In his role as director of solution architecture at Edgeware, Matthew Ho will work closely with new and existing customers to ensure that new services are brought to market quickly and successfully. Ho has more than 15 years of experience and joined Edgeware from Harmonic where he was a senior services manager. Prior to Harmonic, he served as a digital technology architect at Rogers Communications. Ho has also held roles at Storage ASP and Nortel Networks.
“Operators in the region are becoming increasingly interested in OTT services. To be successful when implementing new services, it’s critical they have the ability to scale,” said Ho. “In my role, I will better support Edgeware’s new and existing customers in the region, such as now TV in Hong Kong, on their journey to meet the growing demands of their subscribers.”
