Israel’s Bezeq Selects Alcatel-Lucent’s VDSL2 Vectoring Solution

  • Bezeq
PARIS - Israeli telecommunications operator Bezeq has chosen Alcatel-Lucent to enhance and upgrade the capabilities of its national broadband network which serves 1.2 million subscribers throughout the country. By extensively utilizing Bezeq’s existing copper line and optical fiber infrastructure, Alcatel-Lucent’s VDSL2 vectoring solution will be able to be deployed quickly to enable Bezeq to offer faster broadband connections needed for bandwidth-hungry services such as video streaming and online gaming.

Key Facts:

  • The deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s VDSL2 vectoring technology will enable Bezeq to broaden the reach of its ultra-broadband access service, providing homes and businesses with speeds up to 100 Mbps, significantly enhancing their broadband and video services experience

  • Bezeq has a competitive advantage using VDSL2 vectoring technology that leverages existing infrastructure to deploy the network as quickly as possible

  • VDSL2 vectoring uses noise-cancelling technology that removes the crosstalk between multiple copper lines in a bundle so that each can operate at its best and deliver higher bit rates

  • With Alcatel-Lucent executing The Shift Plan, the industrial strategy to reposition the company as a specialist vendor of IP Networking and Ultra-Broadband Access, VDSL2 vectoring is a key segment of the company’s portfolio of technologies enabling telecommunications operators to deliver superfast Internet access to households and enterprises alike.


 

“The ultra-broadband market in Israel is heating up very quickly with the introduction of bandwith-demanding IP applications," said Yuval Keinan, CTO of Bezeq. "Alcatel-Lucent’s VDSL2 vectoring solution will give Bezeq a great advantage by enabling us to leverage our existing infrastructure while swapping out old technology to meet the customer demand for ultra-broadband in the fastest and most economical way.”

According to Luis Martinez Amago, president EMEA of Alcatel-Lucent, “Alcatel-Lucent had an established relationship with Bezeq in the areas of IP and DWDM technology but we had not worked with them on access projects before this one. After a successful next generation network technology trial, they chose our VDSL2 vectoring solution. We look forward to working closely with Bezeq as they continue to build out their state-of-the-art broadband network to outsmart competition, and deliver ultra-broadband to the citizens in Israel in the shortest delay possible.”
