Swisscom Picks ALU for 1 Gbps FTTH

Swisscom has selected Alcatel-Lucent to bring ultra-broadband access speeds of up to 1 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) to one million households in metropolitan areas of Switzerland.

Specifically, Swisscom is using Alcatel-Lucent’s 7302 Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) using point-to-point gigabit Ethernet technology to offer fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) residential broadband services up to 1 Gbps – the fastest in Switzerland.

The deployment is part of Swisscom’s strategy to bring the benefits of ultra-broadband to 85 percent of the country’s households and businesses by 2020, using both optical fiber and existing copper infrastructure.
