Hong Kong, Broadband World Forum Asia, - Alcatel (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) announced today the delivery, through its Swedish systems integration partner Fiberdata, of its advanced fiber access solution to four service provider networks in Sweden.

Fiberdata is implementing Alcatel’s Fiber-to-the-user (FTTU) system, an end-to-end fiber access solution that has been proven to offer high bandwidth and superior value. The Swedish FTTU networks - being deployed by local utilities and cable TV (CATV) operator Transit – will enable these service providers to cost-effectively deliver high revenue, next generation broadband services today over a single optical fiber.

Jonas Moberg, CTO of Transit Broadband, a Swedish CATV and Internet service provider commented, “For Transit, the combination of Fiberdata and Alcatel is a powerful partnership. Fiberdata’s local expertise in broadband communications and superior local support, combined with Alcatel’s market leading access solutions, is providing us with the confidence to deliver advanced services with partners that have a proven track record.”
