AUSTIN, TX—The SmarTV Company, LLC (SmarTV) has become the latest hospitality solution vendor certified on the iPhontonix iVolve Optical Access platform.
The combination of SmarTV’s interactive engagement software and the iVolve ONT Optical Access platform provides another cost-effective solution for fiber optic implementation into hospitality properties, according to the company.
“Certifying the GuestSmarTV Experience and Engagement Platform on the iVolve Optical Access platform joins two critical elements for the fiber to the room ecosystem and continues to make the technology more accessible to hospitality properties,” stated Jeff Mulqueen, VP of business development for iPhotonix. “The SmarTV Company solution when combined with voice, video & 1Gig+ data rates, all delivered via a single fiber solution (iVolve) guarantees the in-room experience to be something superior to what the guest would experience at home.”
Shane Pierce, VP of content services for The SmarTV Company stated, “Giving guests the ability to interact with devices both in-room and on property through a dedicated fiber platform provides them with a richer interactive experience and also gives hoteliers a distributed fiber solution for entertainment and services that they wish to promote.”
