SPOTLIGHT: Motorola in talks with Reliance for IPTV STBs


Motorola is talking with Indian Reliance Infocomm to sell it its IPTV set-top boxes (STBs). The requirement specified in the Reliance tender was that it should be compatible with Microsoft. The STB model has been developed in collaboration with Microsoft and AT&T, and the demand from Reliance Infocomm could be anything between 3 million and 5 million STBs. Others issuing RFPs for IPTV STBs are VSNL and BSNL. If the RFPs actually convert into large orders, Motorola may get Taiwanese Foxconn to manufacture the STBs boxes for it. Foxconn, meanwhile, proposes to set up a special economic zone jointly with Motorola and the Tamil Nadu Government near Chennai. Article
