Ericsson is to deliver an end-to-end IPTV system to Vodafone Iceland. The solution is based on the Ericsson IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and will be part of a triple play service from the Icelandic operator that will also include voice and broadband Internet.
“The IPTV system from Ericsson will enable user interaction, for example voting, with traditional TV programs. Together with voice services and the internet over broadband networks, this IPTV solution is a complete Triple Play service. We believe that this gives great advantages for our subscribers,” said Gestur Gestsson, CTO, Vodafone Iceland.
Although Vodafone UK is planning to operate its own IPTV service, using a white label package provided by BT, the Icelandic company is an independent company that leases the brand from the Vodafone Group. (JC)
