Oi zeroes in on IPTV equipment supplier

12 Oct 2011

Brazilian telco Telemar Norte Leste (TNL), which markets services in the country under the banner Oi, is believed to be close to selecting an equipment supplier for its IPTV platform, Telecompaper writes citing unconfirmed local media reports. Oi is said to be ready to make a decision within weeks, with a number of major vendors in contention for the contract, including Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei and ZTE of China, among others. Oi plans to deploy a full-blown end-to-end IPTV solution to support its rollout of pay-TV services and is hoping to install the equipment before the end of this year to allow it to launch commercial services in 2012.
