IP networking, ultra-broadband access and cloud technology specialist Alcatel-Lucent is to provide its 100 gigabit-per-second agile optical networking technology to Telecom Italia, as the Italian national service provider transforms its infrastructure to support the delivery of ultra-broadband Internet and TV services for residential and business consumers.

The deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s 100G technology will increase network capacity while further improving service delivery times and ensuring the highest quality customer experience.
