Denmark’s TDC selects Alcatel-Lucent to increase broadband speed

Operators to mix xDSL, point-to-point fibre, and gigabit passive optical network technologies from a single platform

By CBR Staff Writer

Alcatel-Lucent has been selected by TDC, an incumbent operator in Denmark, to ready its network for the delivery of high-speed broadband.

Under the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will build TDC’s network based on its new version of Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM)platform 7302 and 7330 access nodes.

This enables operators to support a mix of xDSL, point-to-point fibre and gigabit passive optical network (GPON) technologies from a single platform.

The company said the single platform approach impacts several aspects of managing a complex broadband access network, including reduced floor space requirements, training needs, software validation cycles and energy usage.

TDC will also deploy Alcatel-Lucent’s customised street cabinets in addition to the selection of Alcatel-Lucent’s 7302 ISAM and 7330 ISAM FTTN platforms and the related 5520 Access Management System (AMS).

TDC said the above deployments will will enable it to achieve the targets of the European Commission’s Digital Agenda, which aims at providing every European citizen with 30Mbps broadband by 2020.

"Enabling TDC to provide the highest bandwidths and the latest revenue-generating services at the lowest cost per bit," Geary said.
