Vivacom deploying Alcatel-Lucent GPON FTTH gear in Bulgaria
Bulgarian service provider Vivacom has begun the roll out of a GPON fiber to the home (FTTH) network using equipment from Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU). The network is expected to reach 1 million households – and reduce operation expenses.The deployment is in keeping with the European Union’s Digital Agenda, which aims to provide access to 100-Mbps downstream data rates to half of European households and 30-Mbps speeds to all European households by 2020. Vivacom plans to offer 100 Mbps to customers in Sofia, Varna, and Plovdiv in 2012, with additional cities on tap in the future.Said Bernard Moscheni, Vivacom CEO, "Vivacom is successfully implementing its program for network development, focused on guaranteeing a better customer experience as well as supporting Bulgaria in meeting its commitments to the European Union. Our partnership with Alcatel-Lucent – one of the leaders in this domain – will enable us to improve our product and services offerings to our customers."The deployment leverages Alcatel-Lucent’s Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) family, including the Alcatel-Lucent 7302 ISAM.

euNetworks turns up 8.8-Tbps network between London and Dublin
European bandwidth infrastructure provider euNetworks Group Ltd. (SGX: H23.SI) has announced the deployment of an optical network between London and Dublin with a potential capacity of 8.8 Tbps. The completion of the link means that all 13 of euNetworks’ fiber-based city networks operate under a single, high-speed mesh domain.In addition to the two end points, the network connects to euNetworks’ data center in Manchester as well as the cities of Bristol and Birmingham. The network is based on the 6500 Packet-Optical Platform from Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ:CIEN; see “euNetworks moves to 100 Gbps”).Despite the depressed Irish economy, euNetworks says that bandwidth demand in Ireland continues to grow as multinational technology companies commit to further investments in their data center and network infrastructure in and around Dublin.“We serve large wholesale carriers, Internet service providers, media companies, financial services, and other high bandwidth consuming enterprises in the Dublin market today,” explains David Selby, vice president of product and strategy of euNetworks. “Over the last year or so, we have had increasing demand from our customers to provide them with our full suite of services both in Dublin and across Europe. This network development means we are truly offering our clients a seamless experience with metro wavelengths, wavelengths, Ethernet, and Internet across our footprint, with good opportunity to scale. This is important as we continue to address growing demand from our existing served segments, and pick up business from new segments as well.”The overall euNetworks optical upgrade program now places the company in position to better meet its customers’ bandwidth and network services needs across the Continent, its management asserts.“As a bandwidth infrastructure provider, our fibre assets in the metro are at the core of our strategy and business model,” said Brady Rafuse, CEO of euNetworks. “For a truly seamless and scalable experience for our customers, we need to link all our operating metropolitan networks with fiber-based long-haul connections. With this new link we complete that, and can now offer our customers a truly seamless service across cities, countries, and Western Europe.”
