Vodafone deploys fixed broadband network

25 Jun 2007

Vodafone Portugal has awarded Alcatel-Lucent a contract for the supply of a DSL broadband network over which it will offer triple-play TV, telephony and internet services. The three-year deal will give Vodafone its first wired infrastructure in Portugal; the country’s second largest cellco by subscribers already offers wired broadband services via wholesale deals with fixed line operators. Vodafone Portugal has deployed Alcatel-Lucent’s TPSDA (triple-play service delivery architecture) that combines access and subscriber service delivery into an integrated DSL solution, as well as its next generation converged solutions. ‘Implementing a DSL network based on state of the art broadband and converged solutions was key to adapt our offerings to meet changing and more demanding customer needs,’ says Miguel Martins, Vodafone Portugal’s Chief Technology Officer.
