FREE, AT LAST
Your customers demand to be entertained and informed at destination on any screen, including their own. But why pay for content if your destination can get it for free, while promoting brand partners? With 8 times more features, we have the best offering in the market.
All for $0. Remarkable indeed.
With a revolutionary new technology, we bring content to the edge of the network and reduce Internet traffic bandwidth by up to 99.99% for live OTT streaming. We open the door to new services that could not be done before. And new amazing opportunities for destinations. 100% eco-friendly.
Destinations are mini Internet service providers who must offer free Internet access to their customers. This means more costs to bear and network congestion caused by video streaming. We introduce a radically better solution to monetize WiFi networks with a guaranteed QoS, specifically tailored for every customer.
