Nortel IPTV solution now includes content

Nortel has inked a deal with Broadstream Communications to provide an end-to-end IPTV solution that now includes not only video infrastructure but television programming too. Broadstream contributes more than 200 channels of IPTV-ready video content that the companies claim can be transmitted directly to any service provider location in the U.S. via Broadstream's satellite. The deal is mostly a rural play for Nortel, which aims to take the pain out of content acquisition for rural telcos. Nortel's solution currently includes features like on-screen instant messaging, mobile-to-TV picture sharing and on-screen caller ID.
