Paris, October 26, 2010 – Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) created the High Leverage Network™ architecture to enable service providers to boost revenues while increasing capacity and reducing costs. Announced today, the latest release of Alcatel-Lucent’s Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) further extends this architecture and its benefits to the access network, enhancing the function of the largest installed base of IP access nodes in the world.

The new capabilities built into the ETSI-based 7302 ISAM and 7330 ISAM FTTN access nodes will address three emerging needs key to delivering the next generation of services.

The need to make use of the installed copper base in mass fiber deployments

The new, high-capacity GPON and point-to-point fiber capabilities on the 7302 and 7330 ISAM platforms allow service providers to offer a mix of access technologies, using fiber and copper, through the same node. This takes up less space, consumes less energy and demands less training and software validation – so providers can offer higher bandwidth to end users at a lower operational cost.

The need for open networks

The latest release of the ISAM platform supports multiple providers offering multiple forms of content on a single network. Network owners can increase the return on their investment by opening up to more services, service providers can extend into new areas, and end users get a wider range of choices for subscription content - generating value all the way down the chain.

The need for an intelligent access network

The new ISAM platform release introduces the industry’s first application enablement processor. Using the processor and its storage capacity, service providers can cache and replicate content at the node, reducing the demand for bandwidth across the network. Personalized content can be stored and assigned from the node, opening new routes to enrich the end user experience and create value. In the future, an intelligent access network could send different, tailored advertising to two adjacent homes watching the same TV broadcast, for example.

“By adding GPON capabilities to our 7302 ISAM and 7330 ISAM FTTN platforms, we are helping our customers to launch their next-generation fiber projects from a solid, familiar and installed base,” said Dave Geary, head of Alcatel-Lucent’s Wireline activities. “This is also the first access node to comply fully with FSAN’s GPON interoperability guidelines. We are committed to interoperability, a principle which translates into shorter times to market and lower engineering barriers for our customers.”
