MUMBAI: Alcatel and Microsoft Corp. announced they will harness IBM's server systems technology to deliver solutions for carrier-class triple play/Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) deployments. This announcement, combined with the existing OEM agreement between IBM and Alcatel, solidifies IBM as a key member of the joint Alcatel-Microsoft IPTV ecosystem.

As a result, IBM, Alcatel and Microsoft will work together to deliver these advanced systems to carriers deploying triple play service offerings.

The optimization of IBM's server and storage solutions will include the ability to provide superior support for the Microsoft TV IPTV Edition software platform within Alcatel's overall Triple Play Service Delivery Architecture (TPSDA). The companies will also cooperate on global go-to- market efforts that will include joint selling and marketing activities, states an official release.

The combination of Alcatel's network access experience, IBM's proven server solutions and Microsoft's software expertise and comprehensive IPTV Edition software platform is expected to speed time to market for IPTV services while improving system performance and architecture scalability for telecommunications service providers. In addition, with the pre-investment in performance testing and integration, the cooperation also has the potential to improve performance and lower CAPEX for service providers, the release adds.

"As the key services integrator and partner to many of the world's largest service providers seeking to deliver triple play offerings, our customers rely on us for guidance across all areas of their projects," says president for Alcatel's fixed solutions activities Monika Maurer. "By working with established leaders like IBM and Microsoft we maintain tremendous confidence in the capabilities of the ecosystem, while providing our customers with the flexibility and reliability necessary for their next-generation network deployments."

"IBM is pleased to be a key server platform and storage provider in delivering integrated IPTV solutions to Alcatel and Microsoft customers," says IBM's Systems and Technology GroupVP Jim Pertzborn. "Leveraging the breadth of IBM's System x (tm) and BladeCenter (tm) technologies will enable Alcatel and Microsoft to deliver reliable, scalable and cost-effective IPTV solutions to their customers."

"Our joint collaboration with Alcatel and IBM is a significant validation of the growing IPTV industry," adds Microsoft TV Division GM Marketing Christine Heckart. "By working with these industry-leading companies we can continue to strengthen the Microsoft IPTV Edition platform while enabling service providers to cost-effectively deliver exciting new TV experiences for consumers."
