The choice of Android as local OS for our platform, was one of the key decisions during the early stage of the development process. In the beginning many stakeholders has expressed doubts about it and eventually changed their minds once Android has been adopted as OS also for STB and SmartTVs.
In fact, thanks to this choice ALYT is natively compatible with the majority of Set Top Box on the market that are using Android as a operating system.

The first POC successfully achieved has been done with a STB from Arcadyan, world leader STB manufacturer from Taiwan. Later the same proof of concept has been replicated with several telecom companies around the globe that are already proposing it to their customers.

The next step will make a POC directly on SmartTV. ALYT is closing agreement with major TV manufacturer in order to achieve this goal.
With ALYT all STB and smart TV, users can enjoy a great IoT experience, reducing the time to market for telecom operators.
