STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERICY) today announced an end-to-end IPTV solution. The offering will make possible a complete range of IPTV services, such as broadcast TV (both standard and high-definition quality), video on-demand, network personal video recording and electronic programming guides.

Ericsson's solution provides telecom-grade performance, meets scalability requirements and involves complete life-cycle management. It also includes guidelines for integration with IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) functions, such as charging and end-user authentication, which is unique on the market. It combines its portfolio with key products from world-leading partners.

Claes Ödman, Vice President, Multimedia Solutions, Ericsson, says: "IPTV is much more than traditional TV broadcast over the IP network - it is about integrating media with communications services to deliver personalized, interactive television no matter where the viewer is."

The end-to-end solution is the first step in Ericsson's long-term evolution of TV services.

"Based on our broadband experience, our standardization efforts and our global IMS leadership, Ericsson has a long-term vision for TV and a migration path to help operators meet the challenge," Ödman says.
