Alcatel-Lucent today confirmed the ongoing evolution of its industry-leading Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) portfolio of IP broadband access products, providing access to the most innovative offerings of voice, video and data services for tens of millions of end-users around the world already.
Since its launch four years ago, continuous innovations have turned the ISAM family into the ultimate reference platform that addresses increasing bandwidth and service delivery requirements, enabling multiple TV/video streams (including HDTV in conjunction with high-speed Internet access, VoIP and gaming applications) as well as IP-based multimedia services (IMS). More than 200 service providers worldwide have adopted the ISAM platform.
Alcatel-Lucent today announced the first group of Mobile WiMAX devices featuring MIMO technology that earned Alcatel-Lucent’s formal stamp of approval. This new approval process is designed to give operators using the company’s market-leading WiMAX infrastructure unprecedented transparency on interoperability and performance.
Six 802.16-2005 (Rev-e) standard devices from Accton, Quanta, Siemens and ZyXEL have received the new Alcatel-Lucent Seal of Interoperability Acceptance for Commercial Services (SIACS) for completing the highest level of interoperability testing. All feature the advanced combination of MIMO (multiple input multiple output) and beam forming technology, enabling them to take advantage of the cutting-edge capacity and coverage capabilities of Alcatel-Lucent’s Rev-e network equipment.
Alcatel-Lucent today announced that the Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise communications server has been selected by Siam City Bank (SCIB) to provide its customers with faster, more efficient service.
The new solution includes the deployment of IP telephony media gateways to replace the traditional key telephone systems across all of SCIB’s 387 nationwide branches, linking them to its Bangkok-based headquarters. SCIB customers will experience universal banking services across all its branches, while SCIB benefits from lower operating costs with an IP-based system.
At the WiMAX World Americas 2008 trade show and exhibition today Alcatel-Lucent is reaffirming its leadership in the worldwide market for WiMAX 802.16e (Rev-e) wireless broadband infrastructure, having secured more commercial agreements than any other vendor. Alcatel-Lucent comes into the marquee event with strong worldwide commercial momentum, having secured five new contract wins since mid-year –- including VTEL in Georgia and Delta Telecom in Azerbaijan — bringing its industry-leading tally of commercial deployment agreements to 30.
Of these Rev-e network deployments, four are already in commercial service, and that number is expected to double by year-end.
Alcatel-Lucent today announced that its 5530 Network Analyzer (NA) has evolved to become a single integrated testing solution for DSL-based broadband access networks. Enhancements include a customer care interface that enables service provider staff to provide immediate support when facing end-user issues, while the Dynamic Line Management (DLM) feature automatically sets digital subscriber lines (DSL) to work with their optimal parameters, resulting in a dramatic increase in stability and service quality.
With the introduction of triple play, the performance level required from DSL rises exponentially. Copper lines are pushed closer to their bit-rate limit as real-time services (such as video and voice) demand higher quality and greater stability. Lower quality loops can undoubtedly result in unstable DSL connections — causing severe service degradation and customer churn.
