UTStarcom bags IPTV contract from Beijing Television

Telecom Lead Asia: UTStarcom Holdings, a provider of
interactive, IP-based network solutions, has bagged an expansion tender from
Beijing Television to enhance the capabilities of BTV’s IPTV broadcasting
control platform.


The expanded platform will feature a new IP-based safe
distribution system that will improve BTV’s IPTV content-management and
distribution capabilities.


“Our expansion project with BTV further solidifies
our leading position in China’s IPTV market,” said Jack Lu., president and
chief executive officer of UTStarcom.


UTStarcom built BTV’s existing IBCP in 2010 and this
contract represents the first IBCP expansion project awarded to the Company.


Since 2010, UTStarcom has built ten IBCPs across China,
specifically in Beijing, Chongqing, Hainan, Hubei, Hunan, Shandong, Shenzhen,
Sichuan, Tianjin, and Zhejiang.


Expansion contracts similar to this one with BTV are
typically larger in scale than the initial IBCP contracts we have signed. Not
only will we continue to capitalize on opportunities to build additional IBCPs,
but we also anticipate similar IBCP expansion contracts in the near future,” Lu
