China Telecom Picks Alcatel-Lucent for Fiber Cities Project

  • FTTH
Paris and Shanghai – More than 26 million people in China will gain access to high-speed networks this year under a new agreement between China Telecom and Alcatel-Lucent.

Under the agreement, secured through A-L subsidiary Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, the company is helping China Telecom implement its ambitious “Broadband China, Fiber Cities” project, which will connect many unserved or underserved areas of the country with a PON-based FTTH/FTTN network.

Wei Leping, chairman of China Telecom Science & Technology Committee, says that by 2015, China Telecom will make FTTH available to 100 million households and will have 30 million FTTH subscribers.

China Telecom plans to deliver consumer and business services that include IPTV, video on demand, VoIP and more at speeds of up to 50 Mbps with guaranteed quality of service levels. Alcatel-Lucent will supply its Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) product family, which supports GPON, EPON and DSL technologies and enables fiber to the home, fiber to the node and fiber to the building.
