Lucent takes over Telefonica middleware

In what may be its most significant IPTV deal to date, Lucent is taking over development of Telefonica Group's Imagenio middleware. When development is complete, Imagenio's features will include interactive applications such as Web browsing, video conferencing and portable TV services. In addition to taking over Imagenio development, Lucent is establishing several IPTV R&D centers in Brazil, Chile, the Czech Republic and Spain, to serve as interoperability labs for testing and integration.
