Tonly Electronics Holdings Limited, a subsidiary of TCL Corporation, and Prodea Systems announced a strategic partnership designed to enable a suite of connected lifestyle services across TCL Tonly’s extensive portfolio of smart consumer electronics, powered by Prodea’s Internet of Things (IoT) service delivery platform. Debuting at BroadcastAsia 2015, the combined solution empowers TCL Tonly’s consumer products, such as HD/SDTV-STBs, OTT STBs, Intelligent Wireless Speakers, Wearable Products, Sound Bars, HTS, DVD/BD Player/Recorder and more, with an evolving selection of IoT services. All services are available to consumers across intelligent and traditional home appliances.
The offering builds on TCL Tonly’s position as one of the world’s leading vertically-integrated manufacturing services providers by integrating a growing number of connected devices with Prodea’s Residential Operating System (ROS). ROS is a service delivery platform for the IoT, designed to enable a variety of existing and emerging service providers to offer a growing bundle of lifestyle services which seamlessly integrate with consumer electronics products.
“Having a shared vision for creating a simplified, user-friendly experience around our technologies, we feel that a partnership between TCL Tonly and Prodea is a great fit for all,” said Andrew Tauhert, EVP of Marketing & Business Development of Prodea Systems. “By integrating our platform to TCL Tonly’s leading products, we are setting a new industry benchmark for what a truly connected lifestyle should be, focusing on consumer experience above all”.
“With this partnership, we are not only re-shaping the way our retail customers experience the IoT through our products, but also enabling a new generation of experiences through our service provider customers”, added Ruiliang Yang, Vice President & General Manager of International AV Business Unit at TCL Tonly. “We are excited to work with Prodea in establishing a framework for the global distribution of our combined offering.”
