Alcatel-Lucent to meet demand for ultra-broadband access and gigabit services with new innovations in fiber and copper technology
New technologies extend industry-leading fixed access portfolio enabling operators to future-proof their networks and prepare for the 5G era
Broadband World Forum 2015, London, United Kingdom, October 20, 2015
- Alcatel-Lucent’s new G.fast multi-port micronode and advanced vectoring 2.0 technologies, enabling operators to leverage G.fast to accelerate Fiber-to-the-home deployments and bring gigabit speeds to multiple residences using existing copper infrastructure, avoiding the need for costly and time-consuming in-building cabling.
- The first commercially available Vplus products from Alcatel-Lucent, filling the gap for operators between VDSL2 vectoring and G.fast to provide a quick, simple and cost-effective means of delivering ultra-broadband access at higher speeds over longer distances to more customers.
- An expansion to the TWDM-PON (Time and Wavelength Division Multiplexed Passive Optical Networks) portfolio, including a new optical network unit for home deployment and enhancements to its Fiber-to-the-home platform that add switching and uplink capacity , critical for large-scale multiple-gigabit deployments. Alcatel-Lucent will also introduce new features to its Network Management System to simplify the management and provisioning of GPON and TWDM technologies over the same fiber network.
