PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that Telenor has selected the Motive Network Analyzer as part of a recently announced plan to modernize its access network in Norway. Telenor is using Alcatel-Lucent’s Motive Network Analyzer to continuously monitor broadband connections, provide efficient troubleshooting capabilities when issues arise, and optimize every one of the connections provided to Telenor’s 500,000 broadband subscribers.
Telenor’s network modernization plans also include deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s VDSL2 technology to upgrade the existing broadband copper infrastructure to enable higher data speeds over DSL and meet demand for superfast broadband to deliver applications like video-on-demand and online gaming. Deployment of the VDSL2 technology is currently under way and Telenor expects to have 500,000 DSL lines migrated to the new platform by 2015.
Telenor will also use the Motive Network Analyzer to reduce operational and capital expenses, by continuously monitoring broadband connections and by providing more efficient troubleshooting capabilities when issues arise.
The Motive Network Analyzer manages more than 80 million access lines around the world — regardless of the vendor providing the access network technology, thanks to its Multi Vendor Plug-In (MVP) functionality — and is a part of the products available under the Motive portfolio of Customer Experience Solutions (CXS).
Telenor’s deployment of the Motive Network Analyzer also includes the Upgrade Predictor, which calculates the highest possible speed for each customer.
The VDSL2 technology includes Dynamic Line Management (DLM) to optimize higher speeds over Telenor’s 500,000 existing DSL access lines.
As Alcatel-Lucent continues to implement The Shift Plan, the industrial strategy to reposition the company as a specialist vendor of IP Networking and Ultra-Broadband Access, deployments such as with Telenor underscore the company’s portfolio of technologies enabling telecommunications operators to deliver superfast Internet access to households and enterprises alike.

Alcatel Lucent repositioning itself Good to see Alcatel Lucent repositioning itself. I was earlier under the impression that Huawei has outpaced NSN & Alcatel even in the Nordics markets of Europe. Seems it is not the case.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
