Switch partners with Macquarie


IPTV player Switch Media is preparing for wide growth in the Asia-Pacific region of video-based traffic and has selected Macquarie Telecom’s hosting arm to provide a data hosting solution for Switch’s video-on-demand and video content management applications.

Switch Media said the partnership fits with plans to grow services in the Australian and Asia-Pacific markets and capitalise on increased take-up of internet TV services. Switch Media’s current clients include Fairfax Media, the ABC and the Australian Government.
