China Telecom has selected Alcatel to upgrade its existing broadband access network across 26 provinces in China to prepare for triple play service delivery.
China Telecom will deploy the Alcatel solution in South China’s 18 provinces and North China’s eight provinces. It will lay a solid foundation for future triple play service delivery. China Telecom subscribers will have access to a series of high quality broadband services such as very high-speed Internet access, videoconference, IPTV and other multimedia services.
“As user demand for high speed Internet access services grows in China, service providers need to enhance and expand their broadband service offerings to better serve their customers. We are very proud to have been selected once again by China Telecom for this significant broadband access network upgrade. It is also an essential step towards mass deployment of triple play services in China,” said Gerard Dega, President of Alcatel Shanghai Bell.
China Telecom will deploy the Alcatel 7302 Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM). Based on an industry-leading architecture that ensures 100% service throughput to every user simultaneously, the Alcatel ISAM solution will enable China Telecom to offer user-centric broadband services at triple the speed of conventional ADSL technology.
Alcatel was selected in December 2005 by Anhui Telecom, a provincial subsidiary of China Telecom, to expand the metropolitan network across the Anhui Province. Anhui Telecom chose Alcatel 7750 Service Router (SR), a purpose-built IP router.
