Telefonica Brasil Selects Lucent for DSL

Telefonica Brasil awarded a contract valued at R$26 million (approximately US$10 million) to Lucent Technologies to expand its ADSL access network in the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Lucent Worldwide Services will deploy IP and ATM access to 180,000 lines for Telefonica. With this project Lucent increases its share of broadband access concentrators in the Telefonica network to reach a total of 400,000 ADSL ports.

Lucent will also supply a new customized solution to deliver broadband access to remote areas, consisting of rugged outside cabinets and the mini-DSLAM Stinger. This jointly developed solution will enable Telefonica to expand its network capabilities while leveraging its existing investment in its network.
