TDC, Denmark's largest telecom and cable TV provider, has selected Alcatel as its IPTV deployment partner. The solution will include the Microsoft TV IPTV Edition software platform and Alcatel's integration services. TDC plans to roll out the solution via ADSL and also leverage the IPTV backend systems and middleware for applications on its DVB based cable-TV network. TDC Cable TV serves nearly 1 million customers in Denmark, about 40% of the market. A sister division, TDC Switzerland, offers mobile and landline telephony, as well as broadband Internet services, in that country to more than 2 million customers.
