Telmex Picks Alcatel-Lucent for VDSL2 and GPON

Telmex has selected Alcatel-Lucent as a key supplier for VDSL2 and GPON in its broadband access network in Mexico. Telmex is aiming to expand VDSL2 and fiber-optics network coverage to connect millions of homes to super high-speed Internet services. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Alcatel-Lucent is providing a wide range of technology solutions to Telmex, including:

  • the latest generation of VDSL2 broadband access technology (Very High Bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line), deployed in street cabinets throughout cities and municipalities to deliver super high-speed access.

  • GPON to deliver more bandwidth to subscribers, improve the performance of current applications and prepare the network for the fast introduction of new services and applications.

  • the Alcatel-Lucent IP/MPLS Carrier Ethernet solution, which will allow a more efficient traffic management and support the delivery of broadband services to a dramatically greater number of subscribers.

“This is a strategic project that reinforces our long-term and very successful relationship with Telmex.�? said Mr. Pierre Chaume, CEO of Alcatel-Lucent in Mexico. “With our advanced broadband access technologies, the new network will allow Telmex to reliably move huge amounts of traffic and multimedia content to remote areas, with better quality signals, ultra high speeds of up to 100 megabits per second per subscriber, and substantial savings in maintenance costs.�?
