The Register takes a look at which suppliers are supplying equipment for Telus’ IP-TV build out. For the Nortel, the good news is it won a high-profile contract over rivals such as Microsoft, Alcatel, Lucent and Siemens. Another Telus supplier is Minerva Networks, which will supply the middleware. Minerva’s software is being embraced by Cisco – prompting the Register to suggest Cisco could acquire Minerva because it would give Cisco an end-to-end IP-TV eco-system with no need for Microsoft’s middleware.
