Neuf Cegetel selects Alcatel-Lucent's Open Services Platform

Neuf Cegetel, France's leading alternative service provider, has deployed Alcatel-Lucent's open services platform for the delivery of Intelligent Network (IN) services. Alcatel-Lucent is also providing integration services to support the project.

The Alcatel-Lucent open services platform, integrated with Neuf Cegetel's service platform, enables a range of services, including: free of charge waiting time for the hotline, split charging and premium rate services, outsourced call center, personal universal telephony and Internet callback. Neuf Cegetel customers have been enjoying free of charge waiting time on the operator's hotline since February 2007.

As a result of the deployment, Neuf Cegetel will also be able to transfer its existing traditional services (freephone number/free calling, universal access and premium rate services) to a single open services platform. It will also support an evolution to new NGN/IMS multimedia services.



  • Beginning this month, Neuf Cegetel is launching a FTTx service in Paris priced at EUR 29.90 (including VAT) per month. Like the company's "100% Neuf Box ADSL package", the new offer will include the phone line, unlimited calls to landline numbers in France and over 30 countries, a television bouquet, access to video on demand, and the Neuf Giga online storage service.

    The Neuf FTTx service will deliver dynamic bandwidth of 50 Mbps (both uplink and downlinks at up to 50 Mbps). Neuf is also planning to offer a 100 Mbps premium service.

    Neuf, which began its fiber rollout in December 2006, is planning to pass one million homes by end of 2009. Coverage areas will include Paris and its suburbs, districts of other major cities, and other areas selected on the basis of rollout costs and opportunities to increase market share.
