Momentum selects Alcatel-Lucent as exclusive provider of fiber-to-the-home technology


Momentum, a US-based competitive service provider, and Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that Momentum has named Alcatel-Lucent as its exclusive GPON (Gigabit PON) provider to support its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure.

Momentum’s comprehensive FTTH offering, now available to developers, provides consumers with “move-in ready” access to advanced services, including video, voice, data and security services. These FTTH service bundles give developers a key competitive advantage while offering consumers an easy-to-use, cost-effective communication suite and the infrastructure to accommodate future digital home and business technologies.

Momentum is deploying the Alcatel-Lucent 7342 ISAM Fiber-to-the-User (FTTU) solution, which uses gigabit passive optical networking (GPON) to enable service providers to cost-effectively deliver high revenue, user-centric broadband services today, over a single optical fiber. The scalability of the Alcatel-Lucent FTTH solution makes it ideal for an initial network rollout and widespread deployment. With this solution, Momentum is able to offer any service mix, with increased reliability and lower maintenance costs, which helps maximize profitability.

“Our FTTH initiative can provide a major competitive advantage for real estate developers and a huge business opportunity for Momentum” said Alan Creighton, president and CEO of Momentum. “As our sole equipment provider, Alcatel-Lucent brings unmatched experience and technology to each of our FTTH build outs. Combined with Momentum’s superior customer service, this technology ensures an unmatched user experience for our FTTH customers.”

“Our work with Momentum further demonstrates Alcatel-Lucent’s commitment to helping accelerate broadband deployments in all market segments,” said Cindy Christy, President of Alcatel-Lucent’s North America business. “Alcatel-Lucent’s FTTU solution enables Momentum to provide a full range of the most advanced voice, data, video and security services to customers in master planned communities.”

The Alcatel-Lucent 7342 ISAM is a robust FSAN standards compliant solution that offers best in class performance and reliability and builds on Alcatel-Lucent’s access technology, innovation and market leadership.

Alcatel-Lucent remains the uncontested global market leader in broadband access with more than 126 million DSL lines shipped to date. More than 135 customers have adopted the ISAM product family globally – including 80% of the top 20 DSL operators in the world. Alcatel-Lucent is also engaged in more than 60 FTTx projects around the world, more than 30 of which are with GPON.
