RE: [802.21] IEEE 802.21 - DVB Integration Presentation

For example, nowadays, IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) comes up in the
real market and ITU-T is in the progress of developing *Mobile IPTV*
standard which aims to service and deliver IPTV contents over wirelsss and
mobile networks. DVB-H and other wireless network integration seems to me
one of examples of *Mobile IPTV* business in the market. 

Anyhow, good initiative, and I will try to feed out this issue and feedback
with my relevant *ITU-T IPTV* knowledge if group wants.
