Tuesday 3 December 2019 | 15:58 CET | News

Russian national operator Rostelecom has provided the public broadcaster OTR with VPN links, reports Cnews.ru. The solution enables the broadcaster to manage remotely the regional transmission of its channel. Local content can be introduced in real time in 81 regions.

Partners of the broadcaster have also become able to control the transmission process, as well as work the equipment of the TV re-transmission operator RTRS. 

Transmission of the regional content on the OTR channel is subsidised by the state; the government allocated RUB 776 million for this purpose this year.
