PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) and Colombia’s UNE EPM Telecomunicaciones have launched the country’s first 100 gigabit-per-second network to meet increasing demand for ultra-broadband access from both mobile and fixed-line customers in urban areas. It is now delivering streaming video traffic from the world soccer event, via Internet, to UNE’s customers.

UNE is using the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform as part of a network transformation aimed at addressing the growing demand for Broadband Internet in Colombia. This project is aligned with the national government’s goals to close the digital divide, and its implementation supports Internet growth in the country. The DWDM/OTN network includes the main fiber rings in Colombia’s national backbone network to connect submarine landing points in Cartagena, Barranquilla and Tolu with the main capital cities including Bogota, Medellin, Bucaramanga, Cucuta, Cali, Ibague, Neiva and Popayan.

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.
