It will also allow creation of an online content store for delivering multimedia services including music and e-books as well as novel apps for video.
Alcatel-Lucent describes its Digital Media Store (DMS) as a “one-stop-shop” content store that helps service providers become full-blown digital entertainment providers and exploit the new revenue opportunities this provides.
