Alcatel-Lucent pushes bonding, energy-saving DSL

Alcatel-Lucent announced a new software release for its Intelligent Services Access Manager platform that enables VDSL2 line-bonding for improved bandwidth. The development comes at a time when telcos such as AT&T and Qwest Communications increasingly have talked about the viability of line-bonding, though the technique has not yet been broadly deployed.

Meanwhile, in connection with this ISAM platform, the vendor also unveiled an ADSL modem with low-power mode that cuts power consumption and saves energy when the modem is not in use.
