BT Openreach expands FTTP footprint
Openreach, the infrastructure arm of UK operator BT Group PLC (LSE: BT.A), says it has held successful trials of "FTTP on demand" in St Agnes, Cornwall. It has been testing the technology needed to install additional fiber from a street cabinet to a home or business inside a fiber-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) enabled area.Previously, FTTP wasn’t possible in FTTC-enabled areas. BT says the new method takes advantage of the fiber it has already deployed between the exchange and the street cabinet.This development means that FTTP – which will soon offer speeds of up to 300 Mbps to end users – will become more widely available. BT says there are around 7 million premises within FTTC-enabled areas currently, rising to 10 million by the end of 2012, and around two-thirds of the country by the end of 2014.The service – which also delivers fast upstream speeds – is likely to be of particular appeal to small and medium size businesses that need to send and receive large amounts of data. The operator says that feedback from businesses involved in its trial in St Agnes has been "excellent."BT plans to conduct further trials of FTTP on demand this summer, with a view to making the service commercially available to all communications providers by spring 2013.Openreach chief executive Olivia Garfield said: "FTTP on demand is a significant development for Broadband Britain. Essentially, it could make our fastest speeds available wherever we deploy fiber. This will be welcome news for small businesses who may wish to benefit from the competitive advantage that such speeds provide."BT also confirmed its intention to introduce a faster variant of FTTC broadband this spring. This new service will deliver speeds that are approximately double those on offer today, so downstream speeds will be up to 80 Mbps rather than up to 40 Mbps. Upstream speeds will also be faster at up to 20 Mbps.
Alcatel-Lucent builds broadband network for Telmex
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) says it has been selected as a key supplier for the deployment of a superfast broadband access network for Mexican carrier Telmex. One of the largest broadband deployments in Latin America, the new network will meet growing demand for super high-speed connectivity and applications, such as video-on-demand, entertainment, and social networks, the company says.Telmex has engaged in an aggressive effort to expand VDSL2 and GPON network coverage to bring high-speed Internet services to millions of homes. Alcatel-Lucent is Telmex's strategic supplier for this effort, providing a wide range of technology, including:The latest generation of VDSL2 broadband access technology, deployed in street cabinets throughout cities and municipalities to deliver high-speed access.GPON technology to deliver more bandwidth to subscribers, improve the performance of current applications, and prepare the network for the fast introduction of new services and applications.Alcatel-Lucent's advanced IP/MPLS Carrier Ethernet equipment, which will enable more efficient traffic management and support the delivery of broadband services to a much greater number of subscribers."This is a strategic project that reinforces our long-term and very successful relationship with Telmex," said Pierre Chaume, CEO of Alcatel-Lucent in Mexico. "With our advanced broadband access technologies, the new network will allow Telmex to reliably move huge amounts of traffic and multimedia content to remote areas, with better quality signals, ultra high speeds of up to 100 Mbps per subscriber, and substantial savings in maintenance costs."
E|net enhances services with Ciena’s Carrier Ethernet suite
Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ: CIEN) says that e|net, a private company that manages the metropolitan-area network (MAN) program on behalf of the Irish Government, has selected Ciena’s 3916 and 3930 Service Delivery Switches to improve its regional network infrastructure. e|net provides open access wholesale products to licensed operators over an advanced fiber network that covers 94 towns and cities in Ireland.Ciena says the low-touch provisioning and embedded service benchmarking capabilities of its Carrier Ethernet platforms enable a simple deployment model and speedy setup of new customer connections. These features enable e|net to expand its network and offer sophisticated quality of service (QoS) and service-level agreement (SLA) capabilities to its service provider customers. Ciena also says its technology enables the operator to tailor Ethernet services to the specific requirements of its service provider customers and demonstrate that individual SLA requirements are being fulfilled.Ciena’s 3916 Service Delivery Switch also provides e|net with an operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM) suite, which includes embedded RFC 2544 service level agreement benchmark testing, meaning that all installed services can be tested remotely from the network operations center.Ciena’s 3930 Service Delivery Switch enhances e|net’s service portfolio by introducing support for 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The 3930 product also supports Synchronous Ethernet, OAM, and high reliability, making it suitable for wireless backhaul and Ethernet business services applications, the systems house adds.The deployment extends e|net’s current Carrier Ethernet network, which already uses Ciena’s Carrier Ethernet Solutions line, including Ciena’s 5305, 5150, and 5140 Service Aggregation Switches and 3940, 3920, and LE-311v Service Delivery Switches. The network also includes Ciena’s Ethernet Service Manager (ESM) for automated service creation, activation and management."Carriers rely on e|net for quick and reliable access to connectivity, and Ciena’s Carrier Ethernet Solutions offer us the portfolio needed to effectively build and expand our Carrier Ethernet network. That means e|net can quickly light new connections for customers, providing them with the guaranteed service quality they require," said Conal Henry, chief executive officer at E|net.
