Alcatel has been awarded a contract to supply DSL equipment to Turk Telekom, the country’s incumbent fixed telecoms operator. The move will see Alcatel providing 200,000 DSL lines to the operator, allowing it to expand its coverage to 2000 remote sites throughout the country. Alcatel will also increase Turk Telekom’s network capacity and help it meet demand for high speed internet access. The deployment, which will incorporate two phases, should be completed in 2004, says the vendor. The contract includes Alcatel’s 7300 Advanced Services Access Manager, along with its 5523 ADSL Work Station Element Management System. Alcatel says it has supplied the majority of Turk Telekom’s core internet infrastructure, all of its narrowband access network, as well as the operator’s initial ADSL network.
