Nortel Teams with NDS for IPTV

Nortel and NDS are collaborating on a new set of IPTV services for the European market.

Specifically, Nortel has signed a global reseller and joint marketing agreement with NDS, and the companies are working together to facilitate the integration of Nortel's voice and multimedia features into the TV environment.

Plans include integrating Nortel's voice and multimedia products into NDS' MediaHighway middleware, to produce a new set of communications services for television. The solution will deliver an enriched user experience through the ability to control various communication services from the TV. Planned features include caller ID, call handling, address book, click-to-dial, call-logs, IM messaging and other IP-based communication services.
