Netia selects Alcatel-Lucent to build 10 Gigabit metro ethernet network

20 Feb 2007

Alcatel-Lucent has announced that Netia, Poland’s largest alternative fixed line provider, has contracted it for the countrywide deployment of its next-generation 10Gb metro ethernet network infrastructure. The Alcatel-Lucent solution provides a single unified infrastructure over which Netia can offer business services such as virtual private LAN services (VPLS) and IP VPNs, and will also form the base for all future services including triple play. ‘Poland has one of the fastest growing broadband markets in Central Eastern Europe and that requires us to aggressively expand our services to meet customer demand,’ said Jolanta Ciesielska, Netia spokesperson. ‘Alcatel-Lucent offers excellent technology and proven performance giving us a solid base to grow our business with services that are a cut above those of our competitors. It also will be the infrastructure for future advanced broadband services.’
