Alcatel-Lucent to install new IP network at University of Concepcion

Telefonica Empresas, a subsidiary for corporate communications business area of Telefonica Chile, has selected Alcatel-Lucent to provide the new IP network to be installed at the University of Concepcion campuses at Concepcion, Chillan, Los Angeles and at its office in Santiago. The project is scheduled for completion in October 2008.

According to Alcatel-Lucent, once deployed, its IP communications network will allow University of Concepcion students, professors, administrative staff and others to communicate and collaborate with enhanced security, speed, and reliability. The users will enjoy the benefits of unified communications including audio and video conferencing for increased productivity and wireless internet for a mobile learning environment. The campus security will also be improved with alarm and video surveillance systems and inter-campus calls will be cheaper.

The network installation is being carried out by Alcatel-Lucent’s business partner e-Business Distribution, and will be centrally managed by Alcatel-Lucent’s OmniVista technology for telephony, unified communications, IP phones, LAN and WLAN across the campus.

Sergio Lavanchy, director of Universidad de Concepcion, said: Completely transforming our voice, data and video network on wired, wireless and optical infrastructures is a significant undertaking. We are investing in this project to maintain the highest standard of education at Universidad of Concepcion, and look forward to becoming the university with the most advanced communication infrastructure in Chile.
