PARIS -- Tunisiana, Tunisia’s largest provider of wireless communications services, and Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) have announced a four-year agreement to build a wireline broadband access network that will bring high-speed Internet access and high-quality voice and video services to millions of Tunisian consumers and business customers.

To support Tunisiana - part of the Qtel Group - in building its nationwide wireline access network, Alcatel-Lucent is providing a complete network solution – including designing, building, managing and maintaining the network. Tunisiana plans to launch commercial services beginning in 2013.

Included in the package are Alcatel-Lucent’s market-leading gigabit passive optical networking (GPON) and VDSL2 broadband access products, which will provide Tunisian households with high connection speeds and reliable services. On top of its fixed access products, Alcatel-Lucent provides elements of its Motive customer experience solution (CXS): the Motive Network Analyzer which ensures high-quality network performance through its advanced troubleshooting capabilities, and the Motive Home Device Manager which allows service personnel to remotely manage a wide range of broadband devices in customers’ homes.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
