Alcatel-Lucent: 200 million DSL lines and counting

With the installation of a VDSL2 line at Telefónica, Alcatel-Lucent now has shipped its 200 millionth DSL line. The new line, which is part of Telefonica's global network transformation project, will be used to deliver a mix of broadband data and video services.

To commemorate the company milestone, Jürgen Lison, Vice President of Alcatel-Lucent's fixed access activities, gave a gold-plated VDSL2 line card to Vicente San Miguel, Telefónica's CTO, during an official ceremony in Madrid.

According to Dell'Oro's Q4 access report, Alcatel-Lucent continues to dominate the DSL (both VDSL2 and ADSL) market through its Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM). In addition to Telefonica, Alcatel-Lucent's ISAM has found a home at a number of other sizeable service providers including Fastweb (Italy, DSL), Sasktel (Canada, VDSL2), and Telekom Austria (Austria, VDSL2).
