Santa Ana, California – (The Hosting News) – April 14, 2006 –
Video streaming media and digital IP content provider, Video Infotec Business Systems, Inc., has selected eWAN1, Inc. to provide all of the back-end technological infrastructure, collocation and hosting for its portfolio of web properties.
Video Infotec’s subsidiaries include: Galaxy Networks Inc., Stream Horizon Studios Ltd., and Ebahn Television Corp. Once integration is complete, each site within Infotech’s online portfolio will be exclusively hosted by eWAN and bear the badge ”Powered by eWAN Networks.”
Managements’ Initial calculations project this new agreement will result in approximately $500,000 in ongoing annual revenue to eWAN.
Prior to the completion of this agreement, eWAN had only been hosting Infotech’s ”Eagle cam” property, a live outdoor site that is documenting the courtship, egg laying and eventual hatch of a new clutch of eaglets on Hornby Island, Canada. The ”Eagle Cam” property currently receives upwards of 2 million unique visitors daily, with an average of 4,500 simultaneous connections, or 35 viewers per minute.
Scott Kettle, President of eWAN, observed, ”Our massive bandwidth capacity and ability to push streaming IPtv content globally is making eWAN an attractive bandwidth and a co-location provider option for other Company’s with digital IP content. Bandwidth and co-location represents a high-margin, recurring revenue business that we feel will be a valuable, high-growth business segment for eWAN in the future. We will provide ongoing bandwidth and co-location for all of Infotech’s sites going forward, just as we have been for its widely popular ”Eagle Cam” site. On Tuesday, March 28, we were averaging 3Mbps for the day. The next day, when the Eagle cam was put online, we went up to an average of 250Mbps for the day. Today, we are using an average 800Mbps per day to sustain the 2M visitors and 4.5K simultaneous visitors. We consider this but a glimpse of how quickly we expect to grow.”
eWAN is scheduled to launch its Global Internet television service and begin broadcasting on April 19, 2006 during the ”PTV and Beyond” show at the Marriott Del Mar, San Diego, California, which eWAN is co-sponsoring.
In front of an audience of the world’s leading telecommunications companies, including Motorola, Alcatel, Bell Canada, Siemens, as well as others. eWAN will debut its first-to-market IPtv network by demonstrating and deploying its multiple channels of ”On Demand” content delivered to subscriber’s televisions through DSL or any other broadband Internet connection.
