SingTel to Test Alcatel-Lucent + Microsoft IPTV

Singapore Telecommunications Limited (Singtel) has signed on to trial the joint Alcatel-Lucent/Microsoft TV IPTV Edition software platform. Alcatel-Lucent will also provide a complete services integration solution that brings together the network infrastructure, software platforms and integration skill sets

The project will include broadcast TV and video on demand (VoD), with content featuring HD-quality resolution.

Microsoft said SingTel represents the 16th telecommunications operator worldwide to sign up to trial or deploy its IPTV Edition software platform, and the second in Asia.

Alcatel-Lucent said it is involved in more than 40 major triple play deployments and more than 40 network transformation projects worldwide.


  • In June 2006, SingTel selected Alcatel-Lucent for the first ever Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) trial in the Asia Pacific region and the first residential Metro Ethernet trial in Singapore.
