Venezuela's CANTV Selects Alcatel's Metro Ethernet

ANTV, the principal operator in Venezuela, has selected Alcatel to implement a nation-wide Metro Ethernet network. The Alcatel IP/MPLS solution is the foundation for CANTV's next generation, service-aware aggregation network and provides the infrastructure CANTV requires for triple play service roll out.

CANTV will utilize the Alcatel solution to construct 14 rings across five cities, enabling the operator to introduce IP and Ethernet based services, such as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for enterprises with differentiated service levels based on customer specifications. The deployment is based on the Alcatel 7450 Ethernet Service Switch and 5620 Service Aware Manager. The network will be completed by November 2005.
