MEXICO CITY and PARIS, Feb. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) announced the launch of one of Latin America's largest broadband access networks with Telmex. Alcatel-Lucent has been selected as a key supplier for the deployment of a superfast broadband access network based on VDSL2 and GPON technologies in Mexico, to meet growing demand for connectivity, super high-speed Internet and high-bandwidth applications, such as video-on-demand, entertainment, social networks and other services.

Telmex has engaged in an aggressive effort to expand VDSL2 and fiber-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.

  • 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.

"This is a strategic project that reinforces our long-term and very successful relationship with Telmex," said Mr. Pierre Chaume, CEO of Alcatel-Lucent in Mexico.
