Belgacom Extends IPTV Contract with Nokia Siemens Networks

Belgacom has extended its contract with Nokia Siemens Networks for the delivery and integration of an IPTV solution for another three years. Nokia Siemens Networks is also supporting Belgacom's plan to add HDTV to its existing portfolio of interactive TV services via IP-based broadband lines. Financial terms were not disclosed.

As part of the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks also will be delivering and integrating MPEG-4 set-top boxes for high-definition TV beginning in November 2004. Nokia Siemens Networks' end-to-end solution uses its own middleware as well as best-of-breed components for encryption/content protection, content servers and TV head-ends.

Nokia Siemens Networks has been working on IPTV solution with Belgacom since 2004.

Belgacom's total customer base for its Belgacom TV exceeded 190,000 subscribers as of the end of June 2007.
