Research and Markets has announced the addition of System Integration and Professional Services in IPTV Networks to their offering.
This report tracks why and how SI services for IP TV have undergone significant growth since 2003 based on profiles of Alcatel, Motorola, Thales, UTStarcom, Lucent, Myrio, Kasenna, ECI and many others. The profiles include a wide variety of integration and professional services that supplement each SI company's own product and service offerings. In general, SI companies have developed a variety of end-to-end services that match the size of the service provider, as a means to shorten the time-to-market. Yet, one of the biggest challenges for SI providers to solve is to integrate competitors' products into their end-to-end solutions, while correctly assuming or allocating responsibility for each company's piece of the Service Level Agreement (SLA).
