GMIT, a subsidiary of German technology group Rohde & Schwarz, has acquired the technology of Motama.
Motama offers software defined products for IP-based media processing, either as turnkey hardware/software products or software-only products for installation in the cloud. These products are used in IPTV, CDN, OTT solutions, telecommunications, hotels, hospitals and corporate networks.
The Saarbrücken-based company’s RelayCaster protocol is a solution minimising packet losses to enable the quality-of-service (QoS) conditions required for interruption-free transmissions.
The acquisition of which financial details were not disclosed will expand GMIT’s product portfolio for interruption-free transmission of audio and video content in IP networks, according to the Berlin-based company.
Dr Marco Lohse who established Motama in 2005 will remain primarily responsible for growth and development of the product line as the Director of R&D IP Gateways at GMIT, a position he will assume on June 1, 2017.
