Alcatel successfully completes Mobile R4 3GPP field trial for Telefónica Moviles in Chile


Barcelona, February 16, 2006 — Alcatel (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) today announced that it has successfully completed with Telefónica Moviles in Chile a field trial of a Mobile Core R4 3GPP and its associated data backbone.

The solution successfully tested by Telefónica Móviles can seamlessly interconnect and interoperate with the existing GSM/CDMA/TDMA core networks, as well as with mobile radio access systems from other vendors. The mobile core R4 3GPP and its associated data backbone consists of 1 call server, 4 media gateways and 8 data nodes, distributed across Santiago de Chile, Valparaíso and Rancagua. Additionally, it would allow growth for corporate customers and, in the future, fixed-mobile convergence.

This innovative solution is based on the Alcatel 5020 Spatial Atrium, a multistandard MSC Server controlling distributed Media Gateways and managing call/session control for voice and data services, that can simultaneously support multiple generations (2G, 2.5G, 3G) and technologies (GSM/CDMA/TDMA/UMTS) of mobile radio access.

Additionally, the data solution supplied for mobile access aggregation and backhaul, based on Alcatel 7670 RSP (Routing Switch Platform) and ESE (Edge Services Extender) products, guarantees connectivity of multiple transport technologies (ATM, E1, Frame Relay, TDM, Gigabit Ethernet, IP,...) and quality of service through IP/MPLS technology.
