Alcatel-Lucent has announced a three-year framework agreement with Lattelecom to extend its broadband DSL services to rural areas using Alcatel-Lucent’s microwave equipment. Under the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will supply its 9500 Microwave Cross Connect (MXC) microwave solution to aggregate and transport DSL broadband network traffic, and also provide installation and commissioning services. ‘This solution will allow us to develop broadband services in those parts of Latvia where optic cable infrastructure is not yet available. The Alcatel-Lucent microwave solution has the highest possible capacity, and it will allow us to keep our commitment to our clients by offering high-quality broadband connections,’ said Lattelecom network director Valdis Vancovics.
