SEPTEMBER 18, 2007 — Telenor, a Norway-based service provider, selected Alcatel-Lucent as its preferred supplier for advanced broadband-access platforms, enabling fiber to the home (FTTH), fiber to the node (FTTN), and VDSL2. Telenor has partnered with Alcatel-Lucent since 2000.

The platforms will carry advanced services such as high-definition TV (HDTV), IPTV, video on demand (VOD), and high-speed Internet. The deployment will bring Telenor's access network to an all-IP strategy, and will begin by the end of 2007. Norway offices will be the initial recipients, with branch offices and affiliates to follow.

The fiber-migration project will use Gbit passive optical network (GPON) FTTH in greenfields and other appropriate areas. FTTN with VDSL2 technology will roll out in other areas for advanced services. Telenor purchased Alcatel-Lucent's intelligent services access manager (ISAM) family, including the 7342 ISAM FTTU, 7302 ISAM, and 7330 ISAM FTTN. The 7342 ISAM FTTU complies with the GPON recommendations from the Full Service Access Network Group (FSAN). All deployed products will be managed by the Alcatel-Lucent access management system.
