Who is Pacific Satellite IPTV for?

Ideally, it's suitable for both residential and commercial applications, such as, the hospitality sector (i.e. hotels and resorts), mining industry dongas, as well as, local Internet service providers.

IPTV service is flexible in the sense that it deploys very quickly with CAT 5 or 6 cable, but it can also operate effectively over existing RF cable (RG 6 & RG 11) installations. This means re-wiring is not necessary which SAVES time and money.

For local networks, the Pacific satellite IPTV solution can be provided over VSAT or DTH antenna and transcoded into IP for distribution over wireless or fiber optic networks.

Recent service refinements enable this service to perform well over 200 Mbps wireless networks. Additional operating expenses can be saved with the use of wind or solar powering of those networks.

But that's not all ...

for the hospitality industry, in addition to IPTV programming and VOD services, the interactive set top box offers hoteliers expanded capabilities to communicate with their guests. This can be achieved through banner advertising, guest messaging, and guest service requests/reservations via the set top box.
