Workonline Communications to assist Tysflo in African expansion
Privately owned global network service provider, Workonline Communications, and online broadcasting platform provider, Tysflo, have announced a strategic partnership that will see Tysflo expanding in the African market, offering African businesses a new media platform.
Workonline Communications and data centre service provider Teraco are working to bring quality content to African shores over Tysflo's platforms. Tysflo offers full-service OTT (over-the-top TV) and IP TV (Internet Protocol TV) platforms with strategic consultancy and support from dedicated broadcast professionals and programmers to facilitate solutions and develop new media platforms for businesses.
"Workonline Communications and Teraco are the foundations on which South Africa is driving the development of its own online ecosystems," says Jyri Hamalainen, Chief Executive Officer at Tysflo. "Broadcast video for OTT and IP TV delivery can be a complex, misunderstood landscape in Africa. The Tysflo.tv USP requires nothing short of a reliable, very well peered network both across Africa and around the world, and a world-class hosting environment for our custom built, scalable video cloud processing technology. We are confident that Workonline and Teraco are the right partners for this project."
Edward Lawrence, Director of Business Development at Workonline Communications, explains this partnership is aligned with Workonline's commitment to providing the best for Africa. "Facilitating for the creation of quality local content is something we are excited about. It is in line with our commitment to the development of the African Internet landscape and the services available here. The reliability of our network, combined with the knowledge of our team, makes us the right provider to distribute the Tysflo content across Africa and globally."
