Alcatel-Lucent Supplies WiMAX Rev-e network in Azerbaijan

Delta Telecom has selected Alcatel-Lucent to deploy Azerbaijan's first commercial WiMAX 802.16e-2005 (Rev-e) network. This new network will provide Delta Telecom's customers with high-speed Internet access as well as other data services and VoIP. It will accommodate stationary, nomadic and mobile applications and will complement Delta Telecom's existing fixed broadband services in sparsely populated areas, where technical and economic factors sometimes make fixed broadband deployments impractical. Delta Telecom plans to launch the commercial services on the network at the end of 2008. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Alcatel-Lucent said it will supply infrastructure and services to both deploy WiMAX and modernize Delta Telecom's nationwide carrier backbone infrastructure. The solution includes base stations, WiMAX access controllers, terminals, an IMS core network and applications software and platforms. Alcatel-Lucent also will provide design and planning for end-to-end integration of the network as well as provisioning services for Delta Telecom's network. http://www.alcatel-lucent.com
