Alcatel-Lucent Offers Triple Play Express for Regional IPTV Operators

Alcatel-Lucent introduced its Triple Play Express (TPE) solution for regional operators, utilities and municipalities in North America. The packaged end-to-end IP video solution is optimized to help these operators avoid installing a system that is too large, or too complex for their needs. The company said TPE is cost-effective starting with 5,000 IPTV subscribers and can be scaled up to 40,000 subscribers.

"Triple Play Express not only leverages Alcatel-Lucent's unsurpassed product and service portfolio and expertise; it builds on a wide ecosystem of experienced IPTV partners, and encompasses content licensing, management and distribution," says Charles Marsh, Vice President of Sales for Major Accounts for Alcatel-Lucent's Americas region. "This unique package directly addresses regional operators' key concerns, and will help them serve millions of households that have been deprived of IPTV, and other advanced IP-based services, until now."

Alcatel-Lucent noted that it has been involved in more than 60 triple play service deployments and 40 IP transformation projects worldwide.
