Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) is using Alcatel-Lucent gear for its IPTV trial, which launched in October.
Southeast Asia's largest telecommunications operator combined Alcatel-Lucent's services-integration solution and the Microsoft TV IPTV Edition software platform to offer broadcast TV and video-on-demand, as well as HDTV.
Alcatel-Lucent's solution also includes Hewlett-Packard ProLiant servers and video-headend systems from Harmonic.
The two companies said they are also working to develop applications including audio support in different languages, music on-demand, karaoke on-demand and customer self-service.
