According to the most recent report from ABI Research, Siemens leads Microsoft in the worldwide market for IPTV right now, but the race has just begun. ABI just finished up a recent analysis of middleware vendors and found that Siemens was ahead of Microsoft in terms of bundling a broader set of technologies. The company also has products for all market segments, while the folks in Redmond are focused only on the big service providers. Siemens acquired its middleware software from its purchase of Myrio last year. ABI says the two will remain in the top slots for the foreseeable future, but who's on top is still up for grabs.
