DALLAS -- Alcatel (NYSE: ALA; Paris: CGEP.PA) today announced a significant increase in ADSL capacity for its Litespan-2000 remote cabinets, giving Alcatel customers the flexibility to offer ADSL services to 100% of the subscribers served by Litespan remote terminals.

This unsurpassed density applies to both new and existing Litespan-2000 and Litespan-2012 remote cabinets. With this improvement, the Litespan LSC- 2016 cabinet can now support up to 2,016 combined POTS and ADSL lines from a single cabinet.

With a significant increase in demand for broadband services, the incorporation of newer ADSL technology becomes an imperative step to increasing Litespan throughput. This advancement enables service providers to now offer ADSL services (ADSL2, ADSL2plus, and ER-ADSL) to customers who might otherwise have been unserviceable due to initial constraints placed on network design.

"Litespan has enjoyed tremendous success in North America," said Mike Dobbs, Senior vice President of Alcatel's access network activities in North America. "With over 48 million lines of Litespan capacity in our customer networks, Alcatel is uniquely positioned to assist service providers in deploying reliable and cost effective DSL solutions. This development is one of many that makes Litespan one of the most competitive multi-service access platforms in today's market place."
