Seemahale Telecoms, a 100% black owned local company, has announced that it recently became a member of Motorola Mobility’s EMEA Channel Programme as a Premier Partner.
As such, Seemahale Telecoms will promote and sell a wide range of products from Motorola Mobility’s for home business, including video head-end and video on demand solutions, home gateways and IPTV and hybrid set-tops.
These products and solutions will allow end customers, including broadcasters, telecommunication companies, Internet service providers (ISPs), alternative carriers and regional service providers, to accelerate the delivery of rich media experiences to their customers.
The Motorola Mobility Channel Programme includes more than 100 leading distributors and resellers focused on delivering innovative fixed broadband and video solutions to a wide range of businesses throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The programme features best-in-class industry leading technology, expertise and marketing support designed to stimulate the creation of differentiated services across countries, operators and service providers to meet the needs of both consumers and business users.
“Joining the Motorola Mobility Channel Programme gives us access to the broad range of products within their portfolio and gives our customers access to a new dimension of video delivery that is bringing multi-screen services to the masses, by showing how the screen at home is becoming more than a TV, and how the tablet/smartphone revolution is changing everyday consumption of video,” says Dr Thabo Lehlokoe, co-founder and chairman of Seemahale Telecoms.
“We are very happy that Motorola has selected us as a Premier Partner, because this shows their foresight and commitment to transformation, broadband and video services in South Africa. It will also contribute to local skills development because it will transfer technical, sales and support expertise to local talent. This will allow Seemahale to play a critical role in the DTT migration process."
Stephane Cohen, director channel operations, home business EMEA, Motorola Mobility, says: “As we look to further expand our channel business in EMEA to support business growth and enter new markets, we need partners with the experience, skills and local knowledge, such as Seemahale.
"We look forward to working closely to better service our customers in South Africa with innovative solutions that deliver enriched converged media experiences.”
