Alcatel-Lucent has been selected by Vodafone Portugal for the implementation of a triple play-capable network solution to provide DSL- based services. In the first phase of the three-year frame agreement, Vodafone Portugal will leverage the Alcatel-Lucent solution to provide broadband services including high speed Internet and voice to residential customers, in what is the first wireline broadband network for the operator.
Vodafone Portugal has deployed Alcatel-Lucent's TPSDA (triple play service delivery architecture) that combines access and subscriber service delivery into an integrated DSL solution, as well as its next generation converged solutions.
The Alcatel-Lucent TPSDA will enable Vodafone Portugal to deliver on its customers' communications needs by complementing its existing mobile services portfolio with wireline-based interactive services.
Alcatel-Lucent has supplied its Intelligent Services Access Manager and its Network Analyser and Home Network Management solution (for the management of devices deployed in customer homes and businesses). It has also deployed its next generation Service Router along with the Service Aware Manager and the Access Gateway Controller.
