Bharti Airtel Selects UTStarcom for IPTV

India's Bharti Airtel has awarded a contract to UTStarcom to supply its RollingStream end-to-end IPTV solution. Financial terms were not disclosed.

UTStarcom's RollingStream solution will enable Bharti Airtel to offer live broadcast television, time-shifted TV and video-on-demand (VoD) bundled with the operator's existing broadband and voice services, which can all be consolidated into a single bill. Airtel expects to offer this new service bundle to customers in Gurgaon and the National Capital Region (NCR) by the end of the year. The service will also be rolled out in a phased manner across eight additional regions in the country.

  • Earlier this year, UTStarcom announced a three-year contract through its collaboration with Aksh Optifibre Ltd. to deploy its RollingStream solution with Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd. (MTNL) in India.
