Based on VDSL2 and GPON technologies in Mexico
Telecommunications company Telmex has selected networking and communications technology, products and services firm Alcatel-Lucent as a key supplier to launch largest broadband access networks in Latin America.
The duo companies will deploy the latest VDSL2 broadband access technology (Very High Bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line) in street cabinets throughout cities and municipalities to deliver super high-speed access.
In addition, the companies will introduce State-of-the-art GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Networking) technology to deliver more bandwidth to subscribers in order to improve the performance of current applications and prepare the network for the fast introduction of new services and applications.
As per the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent’s advanced IP/MPLS Carrier Ethernet offering will also be deployed in an effort to allow efficient traffic management and support the delivery of broadband services to more subscribers.
Alcatel-Lucent Mexico CEO Pierre Chaume said the strategic project reinforces Alcatel-Lucent’s long-term and successful relationship with Telmex.
"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," said Chaume.
