“In a dynamic marketplace for video, customers require a reliable in-home entertainment experience, and operators need control and visibility of end-to-end system and video performance,” said Matt. “By combining a proven video platform with analytics, policy management features and a full range of client apps, including Android TV, with a universal managed Wi-Fi solution, operators are well-positioned to consistently delight customers.”

Kaon will present the value proposition and specifics of using a fielded implementation of Operator Tier Lite Android TV for Minerva 10. The presentation will include flipping fielded devices from other IP Video services and an overview of other key product features. Building on the market momentum for managed Wi-Fi, Kaon will also demonstrate how inclusion of IP Video into a Wi-Fi ecosystem can dramatically reduce trouble calls and time-to-resolve for managed STBs or unmanaged retail devices.

“To raise the bar, operators should expect a universal home network implementation that offers choice for managed Wi-Fi ecosystem across Access Networks and Tiers of Service,” said Eric. “Operators running Minerva or considering Minerva will benefit from an investment in a fully operational CPE ecosystem that Kaon can deliver today.”

International Calling App TalkU Sees Surge in Calls Amid Myanmar's Internet Shutdown

San Jose, CA, April 27, 2021 –(– According to news from The Associated Press, Myanmar’s wireless broadband internet services were shut down in early April by order of the military, as protesters continued to defy the threat of lethal violence to oppose the junta’s takeover.

TalkU, a California-based calling and messaging service provider, saw rapid growth in the number of new users subscribing to its international calling service since the beginning of April. Of all the added international calls, 63.6% were called from Japan to Myanmar phone numbers.

The coronavirus pandemic, and recent political upheaval in Myanmar, have created a huge need for information during such an uncertain time. Because of this, calling service has exploded with calls from people who are looking to get connected with families, friends, and other important network members or just looking for necessary social service.

Previously, thousands of people from Myanmar living in Japan marched in downtown Tokyo on Feb 14 to protest the military coup back home. According to CAN, the gathering, which started in a park and trailed through busy streets, thronged by police, was the latest in a series of protests in a nation that more than 33,000 Myanmar nationals have made their home.

TalkU is a mobile app for calling and sending messages. The app enables users to send unlimited free text messages, and users can get messages and calls from people who are not using this app. TalkU also provides international calling facilities.

“The political chaos is followed by misery for immigrations and their family,” said Michael, Product Manager at TalkU. “For people, coup adds new uncertainties besides Covid-19, we are delighted to help them out and be supportive all the time for all our users.”
