Conax is making a strong effort in the Caribbean, where broadcasters have long been plagued by a high degree of piracy. The company is focusing on the Caribbean and Mexican broadcasting markets and is cooperating closely with local partners, building regional partnerships to provide local implementation and support in the Caribbean, Mexico and America. Conax has secured content protection contracts with five new customers in the Caribbean in the last year. One such operator is TDS, headquartered in Willemstad, Curacao.
Caribbean operators, varied in size by the respective island populations, commonly employ MMDS technology due to unpredictable weather and hurricanes. Dynamic local markets include highly transient customer-base with readily available resources during different seasons of the year, high-end hotel customers, and a large population of local customers.
