PARIS -- Alcatel (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) today announced significant enhancements to its Triple Play Service Delivery Architecture (TPSDA), accelerating IP network transformation and enhancing the quality of experience for broadband consumer services. With these latest enhancements, Alcatel is continuing the momentum of more than 40 active triple play projects and ensuring its triple play architectural blueprint is closely aligned with the needs of service providers worldwide.

“As triple-play service bundles are still in the early stages of deployment, service providers are making critical investments in network infrastructure to prepare for long-term growth in subscriber demand,” said Mark Bieberich, Director, Yankee Group. “With this announcement, Alcatel demonstrates its operational experience from early TPSDA deployments by developing important new product capabilities that will help its expanding customer base meet subscriber demand and improve the user experience.”

The Alcatel IP portfolio has been selected by more than 130 service providers in 55 countries, including massive, multi-year IP network and service transformation projects at AT&T, BT, TeliaSonera and China Telecom. Alcatel is announcing new wins with SaskTel, one of Canada’s most progressive full service communications companies, who selected Alcatel’s triple play solution to enhance its Internet and entertainment services across Saskatchewan; U.S.-based integrated communications provider, NTELOS, who will deploy Alcatel’s TPSDA for a triple play trial in Virginia; and U.S. independent service provider Brazoria Telephone who will deploy an end-to-end IP network solution to deliver new services to its customers in Texas. According to Synergy Research Group, Alcatel is #2 in the Services Edge Router category in Q1 2006, with 18% market share, following four consecutive quarters of market share gain.
