TAMPA, Fla., April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Savtira Corporation, a new provider of outsourced e-commerce solutions, today announced its participation in the ng Connect Program - the multi-industry initiative driving the development of next generation broadband services and technologies based on LTE and other ultra high bandwidth technologies.
As a program member, Savtira Corporation will contribute its Carrier-Class "Entertainment Distribution Network" (EDN) to stream all digital media from the cloud to any device and its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) e-commerce platform.
"We look forward to sharing our cloud computing and e-commerce expertise by collaborating with the ng Connect community because 4G/LTE is the major disruptive technology of the decade. One reason is that LTE is a lot faster, reaches a broader market and is less expensive overall for both providers and consumers. Currently broadband to your home is anywhere between 1 to 10 megabits per second; 4G/LTE is promising speeds of 100 megabits per second and more. That's to your wireless device, home, business or anywhere," says Timothy Roberts, CEO of Savtira. "The other reason is that all media and software, such as video games and business tools, are moving to the cloud, which gives you the ability to manage your data, games and applications from many different types of devices with complete portability of content. That means being able to start a game or business tool on one device on demand with no download or installation, and then pause and resume it on another device. Savtira's Entertainment Distribution Network will take advantage of 4G/LTE, allowing consumers to stream media to any connected device, even in a moving vehicle or airplane and have access to all their data, content and applications."
"We're pleased to welcome Savtira Corporation to the program. We look forward to collaborating with them to create state-of-the art user experiences that support society's interest in being connected anywhere, anytime, through a multitude of 'smart' devices," said Jason Collins, VP of Emerging Technology and Innovation, Alcatel-Lucent, founding member of the ng Connect Program.
