French-US vendor Alcatel-Lucent has confirmed that it is enabling Israeli fixed line incumbent Bezeq to enhance and upgrade the capabilities of its national broadband network by deploying its VDSL2 vectoring solution. In a press release the vendor claimed that its solution would allow Bezeq to offer faster broadband connections needed for bandwidth-hungry services, while broadening the reach of the operator’s superfast broadband service, which offers connectivity at speed of up to 100Mbps.

Commenting on the development, Yuval Keinan, Bezeq’s chief technical officer, was cited as saying: ‘The ultra-broadband market in Israel is heating up very quickly with the introduction of bandwith-demanding IP applications. Alcatel-Lucent’s VDSL2 vectoring solution will give Bezeq a great advantage by enabling us to leverage our existing infrastructure to meet the customer demand for ultra-broadband in the fastest and most economical way.’
