Nordic TeliaSonera to deploy Alcatel's VDSL2-based access network in Finland.
Paris-based Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext: ALU) said on Tuesday that it has secured a deal with Nordic telecoms operator TeliaSonera (Stockholm: TLSN), which will deploy the first 100Mbps VDSL2-based access network in Finland, enabling the delivery of a full-blown (high-definition) IPTV service offering across the country.
TeliaSonera's fiber-to-the-building (FTTB) architecture makes use of fibre cables that are trenched from the operator's central offices to the basement of (apartment) buildings. From there, the end-users are offered very high-speed broadband applications over the existing, in-building copper wires.
The architecture is based on Alcatel-Lucent's 7354 ISAM FTTB Remote Unit - which has specifically been designed for cabinet and multiple dwelling unit (MDU) deployments. Alcatel-Lucent also will provide a range of professional services related to the network roll-out project.
