Launch the Virtual Operator
OTT Model

What Is the Virtual Operator Model?

The virtual operator IPTV / OTT model is primarily a way to scale your platform to your B2B clients. The host operator owns the assets such as network infrastructure, content, and a software TV platform. The host operator connects virtual IPTV operators (or sub-operators) that use its assets. So, companies don't need to purchase content and build their own network infrastructure to create their own virtual operator. Virtual operators work under their own brand and exist jointly with a host operator only.
If you own such assets, you may become a host operator — the one who connects other virtual operators to his platform. This way you additionally monetize your audience.

What Does the OTT Platform with Virtual Operators Give to Your Company?

Connecting virtual operators multiplies the network distribution by connecting new subscriber bases, increases the platform's profitability due to the return on investment, including from the revenue sharing.

In the future

Connecting several virtual operators scales your business, leads to the coverage of more potential markets, diversification of the service. You do not compete. You save time and money searching for subscribers by attracting new operators with ready-made bases to your network.

What Are the Benefits of the Virtual Operator Model?

Additional monetization of your B2C subscriber base through video streaming services;
Reducing infrastructure costs: you do not need to route new networks, but use the infrastructure of your sub-operators to provide video broadcasting services;
Additional income on broadband traffic due to the growth of consumption by your customers;
Strengthening market position: retaining current customers, attracting new ones, differentiate yourself from competitors due to unique content and services.
A low-risk option for entering the IPTV market for virtual operators.

What Is needed?

The host operator needs a technical platform to connect virtual operators.

The platform provides:
  • content uploading, storage, and protection;
  • content preparation for streaming, if necessary (transcoding video into the
  • required format);
  • host operator dashboard;
  • virtual operator dashboards;
  • billing;
  • content view statistics;
  • video players for different platforms (smartphones, smart TVs, STBs).

The host operator provides access to the platform for virtual operators. As a result,
they have a turnkey solution: a streaming platform, ready for content distribution
among subscribers via various devices. If needed, the host operator can
integrate additional services, e. g., virtual operator payment systems.
