Lucent Unveils Its MAP

MURRAY HILL, N.J. -- Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU - News) today announced the Lucent Multimedia Access Platform, an Internet Protocol (IP)-based solution that enables service providers to profitably deliver high-bandwidth video/IPTV, Voice over IP (VoIP) and multimedia services on a mass market scale. The platform is designed to support digital subscriber line (DSL) services, fiber to the home or premise (FTTx), and WiMAX wireless broadband in a single frame -- based on the Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (AdvancedTCA®) standard -- helping service providers deliver interactive IP multimedia services over a wide variety of networks, reducing both capital and operational costs.

The platform complements Lucent's industry-leading IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution and its current broadband access portfolio by offering an all-IP access infrastructure that can leverage the service control, provisioning and quality of service (QoS)-assurance capabilities of Lucent's IMS architecture. This makes it easier for service providers to introduce multimedia or "blended lifestyle" services that combine voice, video and data capabilities, and deliver them to consumers or business customers anytime, anywhere with guaranteed end-to-end QoS.

"Service providers are well-positioned to go beyond simple IPTV to offer new, ground-breaking multimedia services to consumers. We're rapidly turning consumer TVs into true multimedia terminals, combining video with interactive applications such as Web browsing, video conferencing and personal, portable TV services," said Rob Piconi, vice president and general manager for Broadband Solutions at Lucent Technologies. "The Lucent Multimedia Access Platform makes this possible by supporting broadband services over copper, fiber and wireless, delivered with the quality of service that consumers expect from traditional telecom services, all in a platform that can be expanded to meet the needs of the largest, most demanding service providers."
