Alcatel and Microsoft Corp. recently announced the establishment of a global relationship with HP focused on the delivery of server solutions for carrier-class triple play/Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) deployments. This announcement, combined with the existing OEM agreement between HP and Alcatel, solidifies HP as a key member of the joint Alcatel-Microsoft IPTV ecosystem, sid the press release. As a result, the three companies will work together to deliver advanced systems to carriers deploying triple play service offerings.

In addition to providing optimized server solutions, Alcatel, HP and Microsoft will also establish joint global go-to-market efforts that will include sales and marketing activities. Alcatel will include specific bundled server solutions built with HP ProLiant and pre-integrated HP OpenView IT element management software in its end-to-end triple play offering.

According to the press release, the combination of Alcatel's network experience, HP's proven server solutions and Microsoft's software expertise and comprehensive IPTV Edition is expected to speed time to market for IPTV services while improving system performance and architecture scalability for telecommunications service providers.

"Alcatel and Microsoft are changing market perceptions about IPTV services, and HP is pleased to be extending its long-term relationships with both companies," said Peggy Dau, worldwide director of broadband and media solutions, network and service provider business at HP, in a statement. "HP will leverage its combined experience in telecommunications, digital media and systems architecture to deliver a scalable and cost-effective solution that meets the demanding requirements of IPTV."
