BellSouth initiates trial of Microsoft IPTV

BellSouth will conduct a technical trial of Microsoft’s IPTV software platform using new DSL technologies, including ADSL2+ and copper pair bonding, and its 5 million miles of fiber cabling.

The telco said the trial would occur during the first half of 2005. The company will also continue to expand its fiber-to-the-curb (FTTC) network, which currently passes one million homes, to an additional 180,000 customers in 2005.

BellSouth is currently completing testing of IPTV hardware and software within its labs and will later expand its trial to set-top boxes within customers’ homes selected for the trial. It will then evaluate further deployment based upon results of the trial.
