TDC chooses Alcatel, Microsoft for IPTV

Denmark's largest telecom and cable provider, TDC, has inked a deal with Alcatel for an IPTV offering. The solution includes Microsoft TV IPTV Edition software and Alcatel's service integration know-how. The carrier plans to run the solution over ADSL while utilizing cable backend systems in their DVB based system for some apps. The Microsoft solution in its current generation offers instant channel change, personal video recording (one-touch recording and pausing live TV) and VOD. The deal puts Alcatel's worldwide triple play deals at more than 30.
