Tunisie Telecom has selected Alcatel-Lucent’s Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) portfolio to upgrade tens of thousands of existing voice line to provide high-speed broadband using ADSL, VDSL and GPON technology.

The agreement follows the successful trial of VDSL2 Vectoring technology in December 2012, using Alcatel-Lucent’s Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) 7302 platform running on Tunisie’s existing copper cable infrastructure.

VDSL2 vectoring technology enables a smooth migration path towards 100 Mbps ultra-broadband that can support a wide range applications like video-on-demand and online gaming for consumers and secure point-to-point Ethernet services for enterprise.

“We were looking for a comprehensive technology solution that would allow us to reinforce our position as the leader in providing high-speed, high-quality voice and broadband services in Tunisia.  The trial in late 2012 demonstrated to us Alcatel-Lucent had the technology and expertise to achieve our immediate goals and support our longer-term plans in the most timely and cost efficient way,” said Nizar Bouguila, Chief Technology Officer of Tunisie Telecom.

Faiçal Haffoudhi, Country Senior Officer of Alcatel-Lucent Tunisia added that “Tunisie Telecom is a longstanding customer and we have worked very closely together to shape and evolve the network to the next level.  This three-year agreement underscores the confidence Tunisie has in our VDSL2 and GPON technology and ability to help provide customers with the fastest broadband speeds possible now and in the future.”
