TelcoTV 2006, to be held November 6-8 at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Dallas, provides in-depth information on the much talked about area of IPTV.

The conference and expo will cover the areas of researching, building, marketing and successfully selling IPTV experiences from the service provider's point of view. It is targeted for telecom professionals with stakes in all aspects of the IPTV value chain. ( www.telcotvonline.com/telcotv06 )
