Pakistan Telecommunications Company Limited (PTCL), the largest ICT services provider in Pakistan, has heralded a new age of video digital services in the country by bringing Dailymotion to Pakistan.

The joint venture will offer improved viewing experience to PTCL customers, coupled with a wide-range of entertainment content and multi-screen viewing options.

Dailymotion – one of the largest video and user generated content platform – consumes a significant portion of the broadband traffic in Pakistan and with this partnership PTCL has paved the way for the legitimacy of Pakistani content on Dailymotion portal.

Walid Irshaid, President and CEO PTCL said at the occasion, “PTCL is spearheading the spread of digital services culture in Pakistan and this move will augment the growth of local content industry and talent as well as open-up new opportunities and better monetization for Pakistan’s content industry”.

Head of Economic Affairs of French Embassy in Islamabad, Eric Noitakis, characterized the accord as an opportunity to further strengthen the friendly ties with the people of Pakistan. “Pakistani culture is very vibrant and this joint venture of PTCL with French online streaming giant Dailymotion is another step forward in introducing the Pakistani culture to the world. This would also serve the Pakistani communities living abroad by connecting them to the content from their motherland”, he added.

Vincent Martin, VP Distribution & Business Development, Dailymotion said at the occasion, “We see Pakistan as a country with huge potential and this joint venture will result in an increase in the online video viewing on Dailymotion and hence advertisement. Our endeavor is to adhere to the eastern norms and culture of Pakistan by providing a family friendly portal. Moving forward, Dailymotion would also make the objectionable content blocked for Pakistan”.

PTCL also hosted meetings of Dailymotion with Pakistani TV channels to create awareness about this development. PTCL management, Head of Economic Affairs of French Embassy in Pakistan and Pakistan’s content industry leaders participated in the meetings.

Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL), the largest ICT service provider in Pakistan, is investing in one of the largest international submarine cable consortium system, in collaboration with the leading telecom operators of the world.

The new cable system, Asia Africa Europe (AAE-1), will be adding terabits of bandwidth to PTCL’s international capacity, besides building redundancy to its existing international infrastructure on eastern and western side of the Arabian Sea.

“This global initiative marks our vision to cater for the growing broadband and data services requirements of Pakistan for both the consumer and corporate segments”, said Walid Irshaid, President & CEO, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL).

“This will be the fourth high capacity undersea cable system of PTCL and will serve as a catalyst to stimulate growth and development in the country by providing robust, reliable and lowest latency connectivity. The company has already invested in three international cable consortium systems SMW3, SMW4 and IMEWE, which act as a gateway for Pakistan to the information superhighway”, added Walid Irshaid.

 AAE-1 is one of the largest cable systems launched and will employ 100Gbps technology with wavelength add/drop branching units along the lowest latency route and a design capacity of over 40 terabits.

Spanning approximately 25,000 KMs, the AAE-1 submarine cable will be one of the first cable systems connecting Hong Kong, Singapore, Middle East, Africa and Europe and provide an alternative low latency route between Pakistan and rest of the world.

The seventeen major carriers including China Unicom, Chuan Wei, Djibouti Telecom, Etisalat, Mobily, Omantel, OTEGLOBE, Ooredoo, PCCW Global, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL), Telecom Egypt, TOT, Viettel and some other carriers, have signed the Construction and Maintenance Agreement (C&MA) in Hong Kong on January 27, 2014 to officially mark the commencement of the AAE-1 Project.  

Additionally, having two diversified Points of Presence (PoP) in Asia (Hong Kong and Singapore) and three onward connectivity options in Europe (via France, Italy and Greece) will provide the requisite flexibility for these carriers and their customers.

The target completion date for AAE-1 cable construction is the year 2016. When completed, it will connect Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Oman, UAE, Qatar, Yemen, Djibouti, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Greece, Italy and France.
