Alcatel-Lucent launches 1511 Media Access Cross-Connect at ITS World


Combines time-division multiplexing with digital cross-connect features for increased capacity and efficiency

Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced the launch of its next-generation ETSI business access platform - the 1511 Media Access Cross-Connect (MAX). The 1511 MAX combines the key functionalities of a time-division access multiplexer with those of a digital cross-connect, and thus realizes a significant increase in space and power efficiency, capacity and carrier-grade redundancy. At the same time, the consolidated platform significantly reduces network and operational complexities.

The cornerstone of Alcatel-Lucent’s industry-leading 1500-series of ETSI business access products, the 1511 MAX is a future-proof solution that targets fixed and mobile service providers (for leased line and grooming applications respectively), as well as a number of vertical market segments – including the oil and gas, power transmission and transportation industries. Typical applications, supported by the 1500-series of products, include:

* Tele-protection
* Telemetry and telecontrol
* Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)
* Video surveillance
* Public information display and address systems
* Operational telephony
* Emergency call points

“With the launch of the 1511 MAX, Alcatel-Lucent meets the mission-critical business access requirements of its customers,” says Dirk Van den Berghen, President of Alcatel-Lucent’s access activities. “The consolidated 1511 MAX platform is a concrete answer to an increased demand for optimal reliability, with reduced CAPEX and OPEX. This new ETSI platform effectively allows our business access customers to deploy new applications with a top-notch efficiency, while safeguarding business, production and service continuity.”

The 1511 MAX will be displayed at the International Transportation Systems (ITS) World Congress, taking place in Beijing (China) from October 10 to 13. Come and visit the Alcatel-Lucent booth in Hall 2B, booth # 2010.
