Alcatel-Lucent has deployed close to 900,000 IP DSLAM (SAM) ports since it began the rollout of Telstra's next generation Internet Protocol network, Next IP.
Alcatel-Lucent's ISAM provides higher speed capability of up to 24 Mbps and provides Telstra with the potential for a new range of triple play based services.
As Telstra's end to end network integrator, Alcatel-Lucent has completed the first phase of the telco's wireline transformation project, which has established the largest business network in Australia, servicing 95 per cent of businesses.
Testra executive managing director of network and technology, Dan Burns, said the Next IP network coupled with the Next G wireless network creates a platform to transform communications for Australian businesses and governments.
Commenting on the milestone, Aclactel-Lucent's Asia Pacific president, Frederic Rose, said it has been an impressive team effort.
"The rapid integration of our IP DSLAM into Telstra's IP network provides them with a future-proof solution offering greater scalability and access speeds as well as enhanced services," Rose added.
Alcatel-Lucent has shipped more than 142 million DSL lines at the end of the second quarter of 2007. More than 165 customers have adopted the ISAM product family globally - including 80 percent of the top 20 DSL operators in the world.
Telstra provides 9.8 million fixed line and 9.2 million mobile services in Australia.
