IPTV solutions are optimized to deliver video entertainment over IP networks. IMS is an architecture designed to deliver converged multimedia services in a mobile IP core network. Although standards groups for IPTV and IMS have not delivered a ratified standard to support the effective coupling of IPTV with IMS, Alcatel-Lucent believes an NGN Integrated IPTV (IMS-integrated IPTV) approach is the best option. To validate the benefits of IMS integrated IPTV, Alcatel-Lucent has developed a solution that leverages the common functions used by both IMS and IPTV and offers all the components required for the successful deployment of IPTV services in an IP network.
