PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has further underlined its leadership in fixed-line ultra-broadband access by reaching the milestone of 10 million VDSL2 vectoring line shipments.
In a ceremony in Brussels, Proximus (formerly Belgacom), Belgium’s leading provider of telecommunications services and the first operator in the world to deploy a nationwide VDSL2 vectoring network, celebrated a year of successful VDSL2 vectoring operations with the award of a golden line card from Alcatel-Lucent to represent the historic 10 million–shipment milestone. This was reached in the fourth quarter of 2014 - just three years since Alcatel-Lucent launched the first VDSL2 vectoring solution.
Alcatel-Lucent currently has 27 VDSL2 vectoring customers in every region of the world, including Israel’s Bezeq, KPN in the Netherlands, Telecom Argentina, Telecom Italia, TE Data in Egypt and NBN Co. in Australia, with more than 65 commercial trials of the technology conducted by operators.
VDSL2 vectoring allows operators to deploy ultra-broadband services of up to 100 megabits-per-second over their existing copper telephone networks, making it quick and economical to deploy as a complement to fiber-to-the-home (FTTH). As a result, operators can rapidly meet rising customer demand for high-definition television, video-on-demand and online gaming while protecting existing investments.
