New agreements for Telekomunikacja Polska

Lucent will be extending three existing frame agreements with Telekomunikacja Polska (TP) for the delivery of switching and broadband access equipment, as well as services to enhance TP's national broadband access network. The total value of the extensions amounts to US$36 million for 2006.

Under the terms of the contracts, Lucent will continue to provide TP with its Stinger(R) Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) Access Concentrators and AnyMedia(R) Access Platform, key elements of Lucent's Accelerate(TM) Next Generation Networking solutions portfolio, additional equipment and software to enhance capacity of the existing 5ESS voice switches, and related installation, network integration and technical support services from Lucent Worldwide Services. 

The additional AnyMedia(R) access systems will be used for providing basic voice and data services for customers in new housing areas in Poland . New Stinger(R) DSLAMs will support the ongoing successful rollout of TP's broadband access services for residential customers -- "neostrada tp" -- and business customers -- "Internet DSL tp." Both service offerings are enabling high-speed Internet access today and providing the basis for the introduction of new services, such as "Triple Play" -- voice, data and video services including IPTV and Video-on-Demand -- in the future.

"We are glad that we can help TP satisfy the growing needs of their customers, especially in the area of next generation broadband access, which forms the foundation for the introduction of exciting new services, such as IPTV, IP VPNs and VoIP," said Andrzej Dulka, Lucent Technologies sales director for Central and Eastern Europe . "We applaud TP's successes in making broadband Internet access more accessible and popular throughout the country."

 Lucent's broadband access solutions have already been installed in more than 6,000 locations throughout TP's national network, and support the vast majority of over one million TP broadband access subscribers.
