MILAN, Itay -- Following a tender issued in January 2004 and at the end of a successful series of technical tests, Cegetel, the first alternative fixed line telephony operator in France, has chosen to adopt systems from the Italian provider for the development of its future IP (Internet Protocol) telephony services for residential subscribers.

The IP telephony solution chosen by Cegetel is based on the iMSS (Italtel Multi Service Solutions) platform developed by Italtel, capable of integrating Cisco Systems’ IP data systems. Italtel’s solution will be installed at the core of the French operator’s new ADSL networks.

This evolution will enable Cegetel to provide Internet access and IP telephony services to its residential customers on a single ADSL line. These services will be offered, starting from October 2004, in ‘partial Unbundling Local Loop’ and from 2005 will be available in ‘total Unbundling’. With this technology it is possible to offer services to customers without requiring a subscription with the historical tlc operator. Cegetel has been offering total Unbundling to its enterprise customers since November 2003.

In addition, Italtel’s solution offers new opportunities of enhancing the services delivered by Cegetel: video over ADSL; high quality audio reception; customizing new home phone services (voice mail, call transfer, call on hold, …).

Cegetel has oriented its choice on Italtel’s technological new generation network expertise. A level of know-how developed on field through the collaboration with leading tlc historical operators such as Telecom Italia, for whom Italtel implemented a comprehensive integration of the domestic IP network, and Auna, first alternative tlc operator in Spain. Furthermore, Cegetel’s choice is a recognition of Italtel’s ability and experience in the integration and delivery of solutions, successfully responding to its customer’s requirements in a highly technological context. This technological partnership confirms Cegetel’s and Italtel’s ambitions regarding the Unbundling Local Loop and xDSL services markets in great expansion in France.
