DECEMBER 17, 2009 -- Alcatel-Lucent has been selected by Vietnam's CMC Telecom Infrastructure Corp. (CMC TI) to deliver its GPON system. CMC TI's GPON project, the country's first, will enable the delivery of advanced triple-play services -- including high-speed Internet, ICT services, and interactive, high-definition television/video -- to new residential developments and SMEs.

"CMC TI is determined to roll out high-speed broadband services in Vietnam, to propel both residential users and businesses into the digital age. GPON is the ideal technology to efficiently deliver bundled data, video, and voice to focused potential users. We selected Alcatel-Lucent's GPON solution as it provides the required scalability, quality-of-service, and operational efficiency," explains Nguyen Duc Thanh, CMC TI chief executive officer.

"Alcatel-Lucent has been active in Vietnam for more than 20 years, and has played a key role in supporting the development of the country's telecoms infrastructure. This first GPON project in Vietnam is another example of that," says Olivier Lauras, in charge of Alcatel-Lucent's activities in Vietnam. "By means of our award-winning GPON solution, CMC TI will be able to address the country's constantly increasing need for bandwidth and related availability of triple-play services."

Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its 7342 Intelligent Services Access Manager fiber-to-the-user (ISAM FTTU) for the delivery of ultrahigh-speed services to residential and business users. The GPON platform will be supported by the Alcatel-Lucent 5520 Access Management System (AMS), a next-generation element management system that covers the entire ISAM product portfolio, encompassing DSL as well as fiber-based access.

Alcatel-Lucent will also provide professional services in the areas of project management, network analysis, software integration, technical support, and integration of third-party equipment and solutions.
