Cablevision Mexico Taps AlcaLu for 100G

MEXICO CITY -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) and Cablevision, one of the largest cable operators in Mexico, will upgrade the operator’s transmission network to 100 gigabits-per-second (100G) data speeds to help address booming demand in the country for services like high-definition streaming video, high-speed web access and advanced business applications.

Cablevision’s innovative100G network infrastructure - the first 100G network being deployed in Mexico - will enable the operator to move huge amounts of traffic and address the rapidly increasing volume of data through the region created by demand from consumers and businesses for bandwidth-hungry services. The network will expand capacity dramatically and offer a better quality of experience to subscribers while also reducing operating and maintenance costs and lowering power consumption.

Israel Madiedo, CTO Telecom at Cablevision said: “The high quality broadband services we are deploying in Mexico will help provide substantial benefits in the country – helping to drive economic growth and help bridge the digital divide. In addition to enabling us to expand services and keep costs in check, this deployment in Mexico of 100G technology will help us make our network more environmentally sustainable by reducing energy consumption on the network quite dramatically.”
