announces that Codetel
launched a nationwide IPTV offering, providing subscribers across the country with high-quality TV programming, video on demand and other multimedia content services. Enhanced features include picture in picture, karaoke entertainment and digital video recording.
The new IPTV service – supported by Alcatel-Lucent’s end-to-end IPTV solution, including the Microsoft Mediaroom IPTV and multimedia software platform - offers Codetel’s customers an enhanced video experience. It positions Codetel as the first operator to provide advanced new features in the Dominican market, such as video on demand and pause-live TV. The service complements Codetel’s existing voice and broadband Internet access service, enabling the operator to offer one of the first complete “triple play” packages in the Caribbean.
Alcatel-Lucent’s solution also is helping Codetel transform its business by simplifying network operations, improving service quality and expanding its revenue base.
Alcatel-Lucent’s end-to end integrated IPTV solution is based on its market-leading, triple-play service delivery architecture and on Microsoft Mediaroom. To complete the solution, Alcatel-Lucent is providing professional services such as network integration, project management, network design and optimization and maintenance.
