ZTE Corporation of China announced a strategic alliance with Atlas Interactive (Private) Ltd of India under which the two companies will cooperate in introducing TVoIP to four cities in the Delhi region of India.
Expected to be worth more than one billion Rupees, the alliance involves supplying and commissioning a TVoIP network as the foundation for a range of voice, video, and data services for subscribers in the towns of Gurgaon, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Noida.
ZTE equipment will be combined with Atlas’ netTV technology, and will be able to deliver video on demand, broadcast TV, music, video conferencing, SMS, email, web, Internet and intranet access and data at broadband access speed.
