Lucent Wins at Telefónica
The Lucent Ethernet Router 15800 (recently acquired from Riverstone Networks) is designed to support very high-capacity data services in metropolitan networks, and has been deployed by Telefónica de España in key markets to address increasing customer demand for the operator´s residential and business services, and to support anticipated increases in data traffic as Telefonica begins to launch high-definition TV services. These deployments expand on Lucent´s earlier Carrier Ethernet supply agreement with Telefonica, announced in September 2004.
"The successful launch of Imagenio has placed greater demand on our network, and as a result we need to be able to cost-effectively support dramatic increases in high-bandwidth video traffic," said Vicente San Miguel, general director of Infrastructure and Information Systems, Telefonica Group. "The Carrier Ethernet routers from Lucent have proven to be an ideal platform for addressing our video delivery requirements."
