End-to-end Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) in Morocco is now a reality thanks to a solution commissioned for Maroc Telecom from Huawei Technologies Co. Services are already underway and follow similar installations in Thailand, Ukraine, Serbia, Montenegro and China's Guangdong province.
Maroc Telecom is at present expanding its broadband services to meet the expectations of the Moroccan public, not least in its capacity as Morocco?s largest integrated telecom operator in fixed, mobile and Internet operations. The IPTV solution from Huawei featured an H.264-based commercial IPTV pilot during the 2006 soccer World Cup, and now offers over 40 TV channels available to 50,000 subscribers. The operator is planning for 200 channels and 200,000 subscribers by the year-end.
Services include sports, movies, entertainment, information and music download. Construction and implementation of Maroc Telecom's IPTV took two months.
