US public-owned electric power provider EPB has selected Alcatel-Lucent's IPTV service to offer advanced TV and additional communications services to customers in the greater Chattanooga area. The contract is valued at EUR 45.5 million (USD 67 million), and the system is expected to be fully deployed throughout the greater Chattanooga area within five years. EPB officials anticipate initial deployment by early 2009. The service will be based on Alcatel-Lucent's triple play service delivery architecture which will power EPB's TV service delivery. Alcatel-Lucent will be responsible for the network integration. Alcatel-Lucent's service will enable EPB to offer a suite of interactive and blended services over a single IP/MPLS infrastructure with fine-grain quality of service. Alcatel-Lucent's TPSDA will enable EPB to offer advanced TV services including video on demand, with content featuring high definition-quality picture resolution. Alcatel-Lucent will provide its TPSDA architecture including a broadband access network based on its 7342 Intelligent Services Access Manager fibre-to-the-user system, 7750 Service Router, 7450 Ethernet Service Switch, 5620 Service Aware Manager and 5750 Subscriber Services Controller. As the prime integrator, Alcatel-Lucent is responsible for the video head end, network infrastructure, IPTV service platform and OSS systems.
