Mexico's Alestra Expands its Sonus-based VoIP Network

Alestra, an advanced data and voice telecommunications services operator, majority owned by Mexican leading industrial conglomerate Alfa and 49 percent-owned by AT&T, plans a large-scale expansion of its Sonus-based network. Alestra has been a Sonus customer since 2001. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Alestra is planning to increase teledensity in its markets without installing new traditional last-mile telephone connections. In addition, Alestra is partially relying on Sonus Networks as well as other IP technology partners to help meet recent regulatory requirements mandating network operators to provide Local Number Portability (LNP) during 2008.

The initial phase of the project allows for Alestra to decommission legacy infrastructure for Local Service in major markets such as: Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Tijuana, and Juarez.
