Alcatel-Lucent Adds 48-port VDSL2 Line Card to ISAM

Alcatel-Lucent introduced a 48-port VDSL2 line card as part of Release 3.3 of its ISAM product family, a density especially important in space-constrained cabinets. This is a universal DSL card, which is backwards compatible with ADSL.

Alcatel-Lucent's ISAM Release 3.3 products include the 7302 ISAM for central offices and its smaller form factor 7330 ISAM Fiber to the Node (FTTN) optimized for street cabinets. Through the same 48-port VDSL2 line card, services providers can support IPTV subscribers with VDSL2 plus existing ADSL users.

The Alcatel-Lucent ISAM Release 3.3 also contains a high-stability clock, allowing remote clock synchronization that is 10 times more stable than standard. This ensures stable long-term voice connections, fax over IP and provides cost-effective and accurate clock-synchronization solutions for mobile backhaul and business-leased lines.

Another innovation for multi-service support is the optimized design for FTTN deployments of the ISAM voice package, Alcatel-Lucent's IMS ready voice gateway. This design maximizes voice performance and quality by distributing the POTS/ISDN termination boards in remote access nodes and at the same time optimizes the operational cost by using a central VoIP Signaling & Control gateway in the central office. This enables cost-effective FTTx deployment of triple play services by combining voice, data and video services.
