Globecomm announced the latest release of its Tempo platform, an enterprise OTT video cloud version for delivering live and on-demand interactive corporate training, communications and distance learning content. The new cloud-based hosted solution provides greater functionality and minimized bandwidth consumption, and is being deployed by Rollins, Inc to deliver secure, private network communications and interactive training content to the company’s nearly 12,000 employees at 700 worldwide locations.
“Moving to Tempo’s cloud-based hosted service was an easy decision,” said John Torres, managing director at Rollins, Inc. “From a functionality standpoint, all the tools we need for creating, scheduling, distributing and interacting with content are available through a standard browser, with a single sign-on, saving valuable time for the training personnel as well as our trainees. Moving to a cloud-based service also provides significant cost savings while lowering bandwidth consumption.“
Tempo’s OTT video platform was released by the company for use over satellite and dedicated terrestrial networks, accessible by authorized users from any screen or device located anywhere in the world. Globecomm developed the next generation cloud-based Tempo to meet customer demands to provide increased capacity and advanced features at a significantly lower cost. The result is a secure, cloud-based system accessible with a single sign-on from within the corporate network as well as internet-connected remote locations.
Rollins, Inc. is using Tempo to deliver interactive training content from its production studio to TVs, tablets and smartphones at remote locations, which gives users the ability to call in with questions and chat during a live event. It deploys advanced multicast streaming technology to minimize bandwidth consumption on the enterprise network, which can otherwise strain network resources. This also allows Rollins’ users to effectively and efficiently stream Video on Demand (VoD) training content from their massive library at any time.
