Millicom has selected Intraway's satellite television solution to support its direct-to-home (DTH) operations throughout Latin America, which were commercially launched a year ago.

Operating under the Tigo brand, the Millicom group has implemented Intraway's DTH solution at its head-end in Paraguay, which supports satellite television operations throughout the whole region.

The software now supports Tigo's satellite television operations in Bolivia, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras and Guatemala, performing all communication between its video service and its subsidiaries' multiple billing systems.

"Intraway has a platform that has proven to be successful in several video service and satellite television operators. It has been homologated with multiple conditional access systems to protect content security," said Vincencio Maya, CTO for cable, home and digital media at Millicom. "For us, the solution's flexibility is key. It allows us to quickly and efficiently integrate our different regional operations' multiple billing systems in a centralised website".

"Ours is a flexible and modular solution that can be integrated with various billing systems. It allows operators to offer both pre-paid and post-paid services. In addition, it is easily scalable for other services, such as data, telephony, and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications," added Leandro Rzezak, Intraway's CEO.
