Alca-Lu wins AT&T UMTS/HSDPA network expansion, upgrade contract

14 Feb 2008

Alcatel-Lucent has won a contract to support the expansion of AT&T Wireless’ UMTS/HSPA wireless network in the US, including the deployment of the Paris-based vendor’s UMTS/HSDPA Distributed NodeB solution, which provides operators with the flexibility to roll out 3G radio network elements in a wide array of locations, helping them reduce network build out time and cut costs. The deal will also enable AT&T to expand its network capacity and allow it to offer next generation multimedia, mobile broadband and converged services to end users. Under the deal, Alca-Lu, which won a UMTS/HSPA supply contract with AT&T in November 2004, has expanded the end-to-end, turnkey UMTS/HSPA solution, including messaging, voice switching and network applications and services.
