Working with SI Media is a long-time partner and system integrator Tera Adria from Belgrade, also sharing an active collaboration at RTCG Montenegro. Work on Telekom Serbia is now being completed after a three-channel POC test over the summer. The successful test led to the installation of .YES! and those first three channels going live.
This success will be followed by the other ten channels. With the back end installed on virtual machines, SI Media technicians have so far managed the installation remotely.
