Alcatel-Lucent selected for Broadband China project

July 5, 2011

China Telecom has selected Alcatel-Lucent to provide a range of technology solutions for its project to deliver fibre optic broadband services to many unserved or underserved areas of the country.

The project, labelled ‘Broadband China, Fibre Cities’, will involve the deployment of a mix of passive optical networking (PON) technologies connecting homes, office buildings and remote ‘nodes’ which can then distribute the broadband signals to multiple locations over existing copper wires.

Alcatel-Lucent is to supply its Intelligence Services Access Manager (ISAM) product family, which supports GPON, EPON and DSL technologies and enables Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH), Fibre-to-the-Node (FTTN) and Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) deployment models. Following the deployment, China Telecom will be able to offer subscribers a range of consumer and business services including IPTV, VoD, voice over IP (VoIP) and more at speeds of up to 50 Mbps.
