AiStream and Delinet

October 21, 2021 Delhi/NCR : : AiStream UK and Delinet India are pleased to announce that they have entered into a strategic partnership, bringing together their complementary capabilities to support unconnected and under-served digital markets.

The AiStream content experience and payments hub plug-and-play hotspot is bundled with Delinet’s  IP-TV to deliver a value added service based on wi-fi enabled appliances at the last mile.

The premise of the partnership is to enable deployment of education, health and other citizen centric services-at-scale for service providers without the requirement of a fixed or mobile network infrastructure.

The credible platform comes with the key benefits of pre-integrated marketplace, play store, billing, DRM protection and supports multiple new-age business models in a stand-alone or connected environment.

To expand into underserved markets, Delinet and AiStream are planning to initially deploy its edge appliances at 100 challenging locations in the coming quarter, with a major roll out planned over the next 12 months and beyond.

The company is working to reach 300 million users in India and other developing countries by 2025.”

COO and Co-founder of AiStream Peter Abbott said.”This partnership has been made to exploit strong synergies of the technology platform developed by AiStream with the current business of Delinet and the Surbhi Group.

We jointly see a potential to significantly augment the digital content consumption in unconnected markets” Udit Aggarwal, Director of Delinet commented.

Director of Delinet also commented “Deploying AiStream technology within our Group of companies will give us a disruptive capability to open up new digital markets.

Our strategic ambition as a Group is to constantly extend our reach and bring opportunities for content partners and advertisers alike to reach previously unconnected eyeballs, audiences  and communities in an affordable way.”
