OCTOBER 26, 2010 --Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has added GPON and point-to-point fiber capabilities on the 7302 and 7330 Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) FTTN platforms. The upgrades are designed to enable service providers to offer a mix of access technologies, using fiber and copper, through the same node.

The latest release of the ISAM platform supports open access networks to enable multiple providers to offer content on a single network.

The new ISAM platform release also introduces what Alcatel-Lucent describes a the industry’s first application enablement processor. Using the processor and its storage capacity, service providers can cache and replicate content at the node, reducing the demand for bandwidth across the network, Alcatel-Lucent says. Personalized content can be stored and assigned from the node. In the future, an intelligent access network could send different, tailored advertising to two adjacent homes watching the same TV broadcast, for example, the system house adds.

“By adding GPON capabilities to our 7302 ISAM and 7330 ISAM FTTN platforms, we are helping our customers to launch their next-generation fiber projects from a solid, familiar and installed base,” said Dave Geary, head of Alcatel-Lucent’s Wireline activities. “This is also the first access node to comply fully with FSAN’s GPON interoperability guidelines. We are committed to interoperability, a principle which translates into shorter times to market and lower engineering barriers for our customers.”
