JUNE 20, 2007 -- Alcatel-Lucent has announced a pair of new customers, Connexion Technologies and Momentum.

Connexion has selected Alcatel-Lucent's GPON FTTH gear to offer high-speed broadband triple-play (voice, video and data) services to 20 master-planned communities across the United States.

Connexion, which builds and operates FTTH networks in single-family, multi-family, high-rise, resort, and hospitality properties, will deploy Alcatel-Lucent's 7342 ISAM FTTU equipment.

"Deployment of Alcatel-Lucent's platform will not only help drive economic development, but will also raise the standard of living in our communities," said Glen Lang, CEO of Connexion. "We chose Alcatel-Lucent because of its technology leadership in GPON, IP-converged triple play services, commitment to FSAN standards, as well as reputation for performance and reliability."

"This contract with Connexion further demonstrates Alcatel-Lucent's continuing commitment to helping accelerate broadband deployments in the GPON space," said Cindy Christy, president of Alcatel-Lucent's North America business. "Our FTTH solution will enable Connexion to provide customers with the most advanced technology in voice, data and video, backed by the support and expertise that they expect."

Meanwhile, Momentum, a US-based competitive service provider, has named Alcatel-Lucent as its exclusive GPON provider. Momentum's FTTH offering, now available to developers, is designed to provide consumers with "move-in ready" access to advanced services such as video, voice, data, and security services. These FTTH service bundles give developers a competitive advantage while offering consumers an easy-to- use, cost-effective communication suite and the infrastructure to accommodate future digital home and business technologies.

Momentum also will deploy the Alcatel-Lucent 7342 ISAM suite.
