Apr 19, 2006

Lucent Technologies will be supporting Telefonica's Internet television service rollouts worldwide.

Lucent will develop the Spanish carrier's Imagenio Internet television platform in part by establishing Internet Protocol TV research centers in the Spanish cities of Madrid and Huesca as well as Sao Paulo, Brazil, in conjunction with Bell Labs.

"This comprehensive agreement will help Telefonica remain a leading provider of innovative IPTV services," said Vicente San Miguel, general director of infrastructure and information systems at Telefonica. "Lucent has proven to be an exceptional partner as we launched and expanded our 'Imagenio' IPTV service in Spain, where we are now supporting more than 250,000 customers," he added.
