Eion Wireless to develop wireless IPTV in Brazil

24 Jul 2012

Canadian firm Eion Wireless has teamed up with the Santa Catarina-based Quest group to jointly develop wireless IPTV services in Brazil using WiMAX technology operating in unlicensed frequency bands. With a specific focus on rolling out IPTV to rural areas, the pair hope to finish their new business model by 31 December 2013. Under the plan, Eion Wireless will take responsibility for the development of the required wireless solutions, while Quest – a firm focused on the development of communities – will assume control of technology testing and on the creation of launching scenarios in Brazilian developing regions. Eion will use its TrustLink technology to mitigate the potential harmful effects from interference, it said.
