DALLAS -- Micromuse Inc. (Nasdaq: MUSE - News), the leading provider of ultra-scalable, realtime business and service assurance software, is pleased to announce its involvement in a best-of-breed solution for IPTV BSS/OSS. Designed and sponsored by Alcatel, the multi-vendor solution is on permanent display at Alcatel's Plano-based Operational Support Systems Integrations Laboratory. The solution was opened for tour, by invitation only, to an exclusive group of TeleManagement World attendees on November 9, 2005.
"Quality of service is a key component of triple play to ensure fast market adoption. The Alcatel triple play BSS/OSS solution integrates a key service assurance component developed with our Micromuse strategic partner to monitor the quality of the IPTV services," said Frederic Rose, President of Alcatel's integration and services activities.
