Alcatel Enhances Triple Play Service Delivery Architecture

Alcatel announced significant enhancements to its Triple Play Service Delivery Architecture (TPSDA) and cited growing service provider momentum for IPTV deployments globally.



New to Alcatel's TPSDA are Release 4.0 of the Alcatel Service Router Operating System (SR OS) and Release 2.0 of the Alcatel 5750 Subscriber Services Controller (SSC). SR OS release 4.0 is available immediately and highlights include:

  • Non-stop PIM (Protocol Independent Multicast)-based multicast routing and stateful IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) switchover to ensure Non-stop broadcast TV service delivery


  • Non-stop network operation with in-service software upgrades


  • Support for "any mode of operation", increasing flexibility and accelerating network transformation for triple play services


  • Programmable subscriber configuration policies, with automated subscriber management to accelerate High Speed Internet (HSI) migration from PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) to DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), unifying and optimizing triple play operations


The Alcatel 5750 Subscriber Services Controller (SSC), which was first introduced in June 2005, is designed to consolidate existing multi-vendor BRAS environment into the Alcatel Triple Play Service Delivery Architecture (TPSDA). The SSC provides centralized subscriber management, service creation and policy control with customizable subscriber self-service capabilities. It can scale to greater than 50 million subscribers and handle up to 9,000 transactions per second.



Release 2.0 of the Alcatel 5750 Subscriber Services Controller (SSC) will be available in Q3 2006. Highlights include:

  • Support for Service Admission Control (SAC) as part of Alcatel's end-to-end TPSDA service assurance and control framework, future-proofing quality of experience for large scale, on-demand service delivery


  • Integrated subscriber management for DHCP and RADIUS, enabling accelerated High Speed Internet (HSI) migration from PPP to DHCP, unifying and optimizing triple play operations


  • Support for "any mode of operation", increasing flexibility and accelerating network transformation for triple play services


Alcatel also noted that its IP portfolio has been selected by more than 130 service providers in 55 countries, including massive, multi-year IP network and service transformation projects at AT&T, BT, TeliaSonera and China Telecom. 



Alcatel is announcing new wins with SaskTel, who selected Alcatel's triple play solution to enhance its Internet and entertainment services across Saskatchewan; U.S.-based integrated communications provider, NTELOS, who will deploy Alcatel's TPSDA for a triple play trial in Virginia; and U.S. independent service provider Brazoria Telephone who will deploy an end-to-end IP network solution to deliver new services to its customers in Texas.
