Alcatel-Lucent supports Oi to deploy broadband network

Telecom network vendor Alcatel-Lucent said Oi has started deploying broadband network to boost the efficiency of services and reduce infrastructure costs.

The new telecom network architecture will enable Oi landline and mobile broadband customers to enjoy faster downloads. The innovation enables the efficient use of all bandwidth available during peak consumption periods to avoid network congestion and slowdowns.

Oi is deploying Alcatel-Lucent’s 7750 Service Router at the network edge to offer access network services, such as mobile, broadband, IPTV and B2B from a single platform. The single edge architecture helps Oi solve problems faster as well as minimize maintenance and operation costs. This innovation will allow a reduction of nearly half of the equipment currently installed at Oi’s IP access network plant.

Oi is implementing the new telecom architecture in top cities, but the project aims to serve 167 municipalities by 2016, reaching approximately 6 million Oi broadband subscribers and more than 9,000 of its corporate customers.

Oi and Alcatel-Lucent are also implementing a technology that will increase streaming data ability of Oi’s telecommunications network backbone by 57 percent. The project will use OTN (Optical Transport Network) equipment, with 100 Gigabyte circuits that cover 30 thousand kilometers of network.
