Telmex has engaged in an aggressive effort to expand VDSL2 and fibre-optics network coverage to connect millions of homes to super high-speed Internet services. The operator is seeking to deliver increased benefits for end users including higher speeds, increases in available bandwidth and access to a wide variety of multimedia content.
Alcatel-Lucent is Telmex’s strategic supplier for this effort, providing a wide range of technology solutions, including:
- The latest generation of VDSL2 broadband access technology (Very High Bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line), deployed in street cabinets throughout cities and municipalities to deliver super high-speed access.
- State-of-the-art GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Networking) technology to deliver more bandwidth to subscribers, improve the performance of current applications and prepare the network for the fast introduction of new services and applications.
- Alcatel-Lucent’s advanced IP/MPLS Carrier Ethernet solution, which will allow a more efficient traffic management and support the delivery of broadband services to a dramatically greater number of subscribers.
Pierre Chaume, CEO of Alcatel-Lucent in Mexico, said: “With our advanced broadband access technologies, the new network will allow Telmex to reliably move huge amounts of traffic and multimedia content to remote areas, with better quality signals, ultra high speeds of up to 100 megabits per second per subscriber, and substantial savings in maintenance costs.”
