Alcatel-Lucent Evolves its IP Access Platform -- ISAM

Alcatel-Lucent introduced enhancements to its Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) portfolio of IP broadband access products, which have now been adopted by more than 200 service providers worldwide. Since its launch four years ago, the ISAM family - a major building block of Alcatel-Lucent's Triple Play Service Delivery Architecture (TPSDA) - has continuously evolved to support a flexible mix of future-proof access technologies (xDSL, VDSL2, GPON, P2P Ethernet) and a variety of network topologies (central office as well as remote architectures).

Alcatel-Lucent said recent enhancements to its ISAM product family include its Smart DSL technology, as well as its distributed DSLAM and virtual ONT concepts.

Lead customers include AT&T, Belgacom, Hanaro Telecom, Hong Kong Broadband Network Limited, KPN, NeufCegetel, NTELOS, Swisscom and Telstra), as well as a considerable number of utility companies and municipalities and regions around the world.

"Since its launch four years ago, the ISAM family has been adopted by at least one customer per week, consolidating our undisputed number one position in IP broadband access," said Luis Martinez Amago, President of Alcatel-Lucent's fixed access activities.
