Telecom Italia selects Alcatel-Lucent 100G technology

Telecom Italia has partnered with Alcatel-Lucent for its 100Gbps optical networking technology which will enable the operator to deliver high-speed internet and TV services to both its enterprise and consumer customers.

Alcatel-Lucent’s technology will transform Telecom Italia’s core and metro network; increasing its capacity, as well as improving service delivery times and ensuring a high quality customer experience.

“To be selected by a leading operator such as Telecom Italia for the evolution of its transport network towards 100G and beyond, confirms our technology leadership in the IP and optics domain,” said Roberto Loiola, SVP of South and Central Europe at Alcatel-Lucent.

“Working side by side with customers to help them seize and create new opportunities is our mission and we are proud and eager to work with Telecom Italia to once again change the communications landscape in Italy, leveraging the R&D capabilities both companies have in our country.”

In April this year, Alcatel-Lucent also secured a deal with Italy’s Wind Telecomunicazioni for its CDN technology.
