Tiscali teams with Cisco on IPTV

Italy's Tiscali has had the misfortune of working in the shadow of one of the world's most aggressive IPTV pioneers--FastWeb. However, Tiscali launched IPTV services last year and now serves several large Italian cities. Most recently, the carrier signed an agreement with Cisco Systems for the vendor to provide Tiscali with IP next-generation network and video head-end gear, as well as integration services. The solution includes MPEG-4 encoding for standard-definition IPTV programming being delivered to customers in nine cities.
