Golden Telecom extends broadband capacity with Alcatel-Lucent broadband access solution


Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced the successful implementation of a triple play capable network solution to extend Golden Telecom’s broadband network capacity.

The field-proven Alcatel-Lucent DSL solution boosts the introduction of a wide range of multimedia and convergent services including high-speed Internet access, voice-over-IP (VoIP), and data and video delivery, and contributes to an increase in ARPU as well as customer satisfaction and loyalty thanks to a high level of service provisioning.

Under the terms of a series of contracts signed in the second quarter of 2007, Alcatel-Lucent has supplied the following equipment from its broadband access portfolio: the 7302 Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM), the 7330 ISAM Fiber-to-the-Node and the 7324 Remote Unit with a total capacity of up to 33,000 DSL lines, as well as an upgrade of the existing management system with the 5523 ADSL Work Station (AWS) to manage the DSL network elements.

“The broadband market in the CIS region is developing rapidly. People are looking for new experiences, and operators can help increase quality of life by providing broadband to all citizens,” said Johan Vanderplaetse, vice president for Alcatel-Lucent in the Commonwealth of Independent States. “Our global experience and portfolio breadth enable us to satisfy our customers’ needs and support them as they increase the reach of their network, while introducing new and advanced services.”

With more than 165 customers deploying its ISAM product portfolio, including 80% of the top 20 DSL operators in the world, and more than 142 million DSL lines shipped, Alcatel-Lucent continues to be the undisputed leader in the DSL market. Alcatel-Lucent brings its customers the strongest product portfolio in all access segments, substantial and ongoing investment in innovation and technology, business consultancy programs, and an unparalleled experience in supporting very large, complex end-to-end deployments in all regions worldwide.
