Executive Telecom Providers Share Unique Perspectives for Controlling Operations Costs throughout Life Cycle of Triple-Play Service Bundles

CHICAGO September 7, 2005 The International Engineering Consortium (IEC) hosts an unprecedented Future of the Triple Play, industry overview session led by top-level information industry executives who will address challenges and share solutions on broadband convergence at Broadband World Forum Europe, 3 October in Madrid, Spain.

This distinct industry overview session provides a comprehensive outlook, bringing together principal leaders from a software provider, a systems provider, two service providers, and a prominent industry analyst to one session.

Led by Chairperson Alan Mottram, president, Fixed Solutions division, Alacatel, panelists include Phil Corman, director, Worldwide Partner Development, Microsoft TV; Massimo Intorella, vice president, Strategic Marketing, Telecom Italia Wireline; Paul Berriman, head of Strategic Market Development, PCCW; and Stphane Tral, managing director, 10th Street Advisors.

As Mr. Mottram noted the excitement of triple play as the hottest topic in the industry, he commented, "Everyone wants us to get everything done yesterday. We are going really fast, but must also be careful to get it right" [Triple play's] impact will be significant, even revolutionary.

Mr. Mottram added that the session provides a unique opportunity to hear different perspectives on the future of triple play.

Granting information on a new approach that builds management intelligence and automation directly into triple-play services, the session affords valuable education to telecom professionals worldwide trying to understand the new management paradigm.

Mr. Corman commented, "Microsoft believes that Internet Protocol (IP) technology is the future of triple-play and quadruple-play services. Attendees will learn how to deliver next-generation digital TV services over their managed, broadband IP networks, and how to extend this value by connecting them to compatible devices and services."
