Alcatel-Lucent is to provide its 100 gigabit-per-second agile optical networking technology to Telecom Italia as the Italian national service provider transforms its infrastructure to support the delivery of ultra-broadband Internet and TV services for residential and business consumers.
The deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s 100G technology will increase network capacity while further improving service delivery times and ensuring the highest quality customer experience.
Alcatel-Lucent’s provision of 100G agile optical networking technology will transform Telecom Italia’s core and metro network, enabling the evolution to IP services.
Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its market-leading 1830 Photonic Service Switch (1830 PSS). This offers service providers, the right mix of flexibility and efficiency, allowing them to accelerate and simplify new service introduction and management.
The deployment will allow Telecom Italia to enhance the delivery of high-performance, low-latency services to business customers and provide a cost-effective backhaul solution for residential ultra-broadband access.
The ROADM-based architecture implemented allows the automated provisioning of wavelengths at optical nodes to dynamically meet traffic demands and boost network scale and efficiency.
Alcatel-Lucent’s agile optical networking technology helps service providers evolve their transport networks at their own speed to meet growing capacity demands.
