Tunisie Telecom has considered Alcatel-Lucent Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) portfolio to upgrade existing voice line to provide high-speed broadband using ADSL, VDSL and GPON technology.
Alcatel-Lucent will supply its 7302,7353 and 7330 Intelligent Services Access Manager solutions, 5526 Access Management System, and customised street cabinets to provide both voice and ultra-broadband services to thousands of customers as part of a three-year agreement.
“We were looking for a technology solution that would allow us to reinforce our position as the leader in providing high-speed, high-quality voice and broadband services in Tunisia,” said Nizar Bouguila, chief technology officer of Tunisie Telecom.
Alcatel-Lucent solution will enable Tunisie Telecom, a telecom service provider in Tunisia, to transform the carrier’s voice and data network, paving the way for ultra-broadband access services for residential and enterprise customers throughout Tunisia.
The agreement follows the successful trial of VDSL2 Vectoring technology in December 2012, using Alcatel-Lucent’s Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) 7302 platform running on Tunisie’s existing copper cable infrastructure. VDSL2 vectoring technology enables a smooth migration path towards 100 Mbps ultra-broadband that can support a wide range applications like video-on-demand and online gaming for consumers and secure point-to-point Ethernet services for enterprise.
