Alcatel announced the enhancement of its industry leading broadband access portfolio with the introduction of a Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solution for operators who are using or considering fiber-to-the-premise for triple play service delivery.

Based on ITU standards and the latest proposed specifications by the Full Service Access Network (FSAN) working group of the ITU, the Alcatel 7342 ISAM FTTU promises to extend the benefits of the current ISAM family’s architecture to GPON access, enabling subscriber rates of 200Mbps and higher. The Alcatel ISAM product line is said to have been already deployed worldwide with more than 15 large customers since its introduction.

Through adherence to the latest ITU GPON standards (G.984.x) and optimization for IP convergence, the 7342 ISAM FTTU adds an additional ‘last mile’ option to Alcatel’s existing end-to-end triple play solution. This option enables service providers to deploy voice, data and video services directly to users over fiber optic facilities at rates to 2.5Gbps.

‘By adding GPON to its access portfolio, and providing a clear migration path from BPON to GPON, Alcatel further strengthens its position as a highly competitive supplier of full turn-key triple play solutions,’ according to Dave Dunphy, Principal Analyst of Optical Infrastructure at Current Analysis. The 7342 ISAM FTTU lets operators leverage their large installed base of Alcatel’s broadband management systems and offers a timely response to U.S RBOC interest in making a gradual transition from BPON to GPON, particularly as they accelerate triple play roll out.

‘The introduction of our GPON solution demonstrates Alcatel’s continued commitment to providers worldwide who are deploying triple play services, and we believe fiber-to-the-premise represents a key dimension in their deployments, ‘ comments Michel Rahier, in charge of Alcatel’s global fixed communication activities. “Through compliance with standards, with the latest industry recommendations and due to the commonality with existing Alcatel access platforms, the 7342 ISAM FTTU enables providers to deliver these latest broadband services in a scaleable manner with minimal impact to ongoing field practices.
