France-based telecom supplier Alcatel and software and services supplier Amdocs are teaming on a platform solution to help communications service providers deploy Internet Protocol or IP-based television (IPTV) and other next generation broadband IP services.

Both Alcatel and Amdocs will work to deliver a joint end-to-end solution that will allow service providers to offer bundles of voice, data and video services, making deployments faster and easier, and reducing operational costs. The two companies are seeking to integrate the Amdocs IP Convergence Solution for IPTV with Alcatel's broad suite of IPTV offerings to ensure seamless connectivity and interoperability between platforms, leveraging functionality across the solutions.

The two companies will also create a joint architectural map and service offerings, and plan to engage in joint sales and marketing efforts aligned around customer needs.

Alcatel and Amdocs have already begun development of an Interoperability lab that will simulate real-world production environments and foster the creation of a joint end-to-end offering. The environment will house diverse components of the combined solution, including the infrastructure, full broadband access network, switching, routing, transport and applications.
