Technology brief description

The MEME-B platform is a technology developed to address the need for massively scalable Internet real-time television broadcasting in congested and bandwidth constrained mobile networks. The technology allows live streaming of television content to be viewed on mobile devices without buffering and disruption as is typical in rural and urban regions of developing countries.

The MEME-B technology is optimised for low infrastructure regions and congested wireless networks (including 2.5G for rural, 3G and Wi-Fi) to broadcast minimum-delay live video streams over the Internet with improved perceived picture quality than is currently possible with ‘off-the-shelf’ solutions. The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has reviewed the technology and has classified it as an Over-The-Top service and therefore does not require a broadcasting license

Benefits

Real-time television broadcasting in congested and bandwidth constrained mobile networks. No buffering.
