UTStarcom, Aksh in pact to extend IPTV services to MTNL subscribers in Mumbai

UTStarcom, Inc has inked a deal with Aksh Optifibre Ltd to extend the latter’s reach and deliver its IPTV services to MTNL subscribers in Mumbai. Aksh had originally selected UTStarcom in early 2007 to deliver IPTV service in India through MTNL in Delhi. Aksh had announced the launch of its IPTV and VoIP services in Mumbai on the MTNL network in March 2008.

Commenting on the development, Kailash S Choudhari, Managing Director, Aksh Optifibre Ltd, said, “UTStarcom’s RollingStream IPTV solution is a completely IP-based platform that will enable better delivery of the interactive entertainment services we plan to extend to our customers. Our relationship with UTStarcom to bring the first IPTV service to India led that innovation, and now we are hoping to bring those high-quality entertainment services to more subscribers.”

UTStarcom’s RollingStream end-to-end IPTV system supports more than 850,000 live IPTV subscribers globally. The system maintains a current total system capacity exceeding 2.5 million subscribers as a result of recent successful deployments in China with China Netcom and China Telecom, in India with Bharti Airtel, MTNL/Aksh and United Telecoms Ltd, in Sri Lanka with SLT, in Japan with Softbank, in Latin America with Brasil Telecom, in Taiwan with Markwell, and in Europe with Jersey Telecom.

Vijay Yadav, Vice-President and Managing Director, South Asia operations, UTStarcom, said, “IPTV is building steady momentum in India and UTStarcom’s understanding of the growing environment gives us a market advantage UTStarcom’s relationship with Aksh will assist the operator in bringing more IPTV-based services to its customers, increasing revenue opportunities and maintaining its leadership position in India.”
