New Delhi, Sept 17 (UNI) UTStarcom, a US-based end-to-end networking solution provider, today said it will supply its RollingStreamT end-to-end IPTV solution to Bharti Airtel.
The solution will enable Airtel to offer a new service to its customers consisting of live broadcast television, time-shifted TV and video-on-demand (VoD).
The company will offer this new service bundle to customers in Gurgaon and the National Capital Region (NCR) by the end of the year.
