Belgacom Retaining Nokia Siemens Middleware

Belgacom has extended its contract with Nokia Siemens for middleware software and integration services for another three years. Nokia Siemens will also provide set-top boxes to Belgacom to support HD services using MPEG-4 compression. Nokia Siemens has been providing these services to Belgacom since 2004. Belgacom had 191 thousand IPTV subscribers at the end of June 2007.

This settles this issue for Nokia Siemens. We had picked up rumors that Belgacom would move to the Alcatel-Lucent MiView middleware software. Clearly, this has not come to pass.
