Telkomsel needed a robust scalable solution

Telkomsel is the leading mobile operator in Indonesia. To evolve their technology strategy and offer more of what subscribers want, they envisioned a mobile app for live sports streaming. Telkomsel had plans to launch its new OTT service in time for the 2018 world soccer championships. The games were only weeks away and they needed to set up their OTT service fast.
Video quality for OTT live sports streaming is essential and Telksomsel required robust scaling to seamlessly handle peak viewing times.

Telkomsel gets results

The success of the launch and the quality of service was rewarded with 4M new OTT subscribers in just over 4 weeks. Their growing subscriber base proved that viewers were hooked, and wanting more. 
The pay-as-you-grow model made it possible for Telkomsel to expand its offer. They have since added 21 live OTT channels for over 2.1M engaged sports fans, and also VOD content. With the support of Harmonic’s VOS®360 Media SaaS, Telkomsel now has the momentum to just keep on growing.
