Sion Internet Taps Octoshape for High Quality Streaming Video Services in Argentina

Octoshape selected to solve video quality and bandwidth efficiency issues

ATLANTA--Sion Internet, a leading residential and corporate broadband and Internet service provider in Argentina, announced today that it will use Octoshape's InfiniteHD™ technology for streaming high quality video to its customers.


"Octoshape InfiniteHD™ enables us not only to deliver the highest quality video, it also facilitates the scale required to deliver an uninterrupted live concert to audiences across our country."

As a leading provider of Internet services in the region, Sion Internet regularly broadcasts live and on demand content for large-scale events and OTT initiatives in the region.

"Delivering an uninterrupted and high quality video experience can be quite challenging in the Latin American region," said Luis Quinelli, Founder and CEO of Sion Internet. "Octoshape InfiniteHD™ enables us not only to deliver the highest quality video, it also facilitates the scale required to deliver an uninterrupted live concert to audiences across our country."

While in some parts of the world Internet connectivity and reliable connections are widely available, many large emerging key markets simply do not have the robust infrastructure necessary to offer an uninterrupted viewing experience over the public Internet. Octoshape's technologies are engineered with patented resiliency algorithms and transport mechanisms to deliver sustained and high quality viewing experiences in all regions of the world. This stands out particularly in challenging Internet environments across regions such as Latin America, Middle East and Asia Pacific. Octoshape's patented technologies change the model for high quality streaming by removing the requirement to place edge servers close to the consumer.

"We are excited to work with Sion Internet to raise the bar for streaming media experiences to their customers," said Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. "The technology Sion has adopted will enable them to increase their customer satisfaction and will lead to increased viewing engagement times by providing a quality they were previously unable to offer."

"As a premier Rock Event organizer and broadcaster, satisfaction of our fan base is critical. We are excited to collaborate with Sion and to adopt the Octoshape technologies to deliver our concerts to a large scale online audience," said Mario Pergolini, CEO of Vorterix.
