Apple partners with Euro telecom firm Teleca
European telecom services company Teleca on Monday announced a partnership with Apple that will enable the services provider to use Apple's hardware and software in its creation, delivery and multimedia playback solutions. The news was released at the 3GSM World Congress being held this week in France. Apple's technology -- especially Mac OS X, Xserve and Xsan -- will be the focal point of Teleca's efforts to build everything from software for mobile devices to large IT networks. Teleca's Popwire subsidiary creates multimedia software for cell phones and expects to employ QuickTime, which uses the scalable, high-definition H.264 codec in its upcoming seventh version, extensively in its solutions.
