The products target connectivity in the home.
Alcatel-Lucent has launched products to help communications providers bring gigabit-speed ultra-broadband access in connected homes.
The 7368 Intelligent Service Access Manager (ISAM) optical network terminal is a network hub that ensures consistent distribution of broadband speed throughout the building. It uses dual-band wi-fi and a more powerful signal to provide 1Gps of bandwidth and better in-home coverage.
The networking provider has also introduced ONT Easy, an online activation feature combining Alcatel-Lucent’s Motive customer experience management solutions with service functions to allow consumers to activate fibre-to-the-home services through a web portal.
The products tap into the growing market for high quality connectivity in the home, which is becoming a more prominent issue as more and more devices sit on networks.
Alcatel-Lucent recently announced that it will be acquired by Nokia.
Federico Guillén, president of Alcatel-Lucent‘s Fixed Access Business Line said: "With the Internet of Things enabling an unprecedented number of objects to interact and share data, connected device shipments are expected to grow at a faster rate than smartphones and tablets over the next few years, placing huge demands on home Wi-Fi networks.
"By offering the first gigabit Wi-Fi solution we are helping operators deliver on the promise of their fiber networks to meet their customers’ ever-growing demands for connectivity and speed. ONT Easy Start will open up new options for operators, allowing them to free up resources as they reduce costs."
