New Delhi, May 26 (IANS) UTStarcom, a US-based network solutions provider, Tuesday said it will support state-run telecom major Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) to roll out IPTV (Internet protocol television) services.
UTStarcom’s existing contract with the Indian firm has been extended for this purpose, the company said in a statement.

It added that under the contract, UTStarcom will deploy a solution that will connect its customers’ telephone lines to core network across India.

This will enable them to get IPTV services.

IPTV is a system where a digital television service is delivered using Internet Protocol over a network infrastructure, that is, a broadband connection.

With this, BSNL’s broadband network capacity will increase, allowing the company to offer its triple-play (IPTV, broadband and telephone) services to more subscribers at a higher speed.

“We worked closely with BSNL to successfully complete the phase I of this multi-play broadband network and are now nearing completion of the phase II,” said Vijay Yadav, vice-president and managing director of UTStarcom’s South Asia operations.
