Entertainment and Information content is uploaded to the content management system which then synchronizes with the edge devices using either the Internet (if available) or a satellite.
Individuals, using a basic tablet - could even be a Chromebook, and no internet connection, connect to the edge devices via Wi-Fi that have the entertainment and information content delivered onto them. In the most remote areas, a return data channel returns the statistics captured related to content engagement.
Gathering Statistics: In all cases, a low bandwidth return data channel - could be satellite, fixed network, mobile, wireless - is used to deliver the statistics.
In both cases above, the innovation of this project is that the individuals accessing the content do not require an Internet connection, yet their experience would be as if they were connected.
Utilizing our innovative approach, entertainment and information choices, especially to those in the remote parts of the world, bridges the digital divide and enhances the quality of life of many.
By using a satellite to deliver any type of content, the solution enables users to have a really cool, multimedia experience, in a remote location, with the lowest possible cost, with the highest potential for user engagement and success.
