Alcatel announced that China Telecom, a fixed telecommunication service provider in China, has selected Alcatel to upgrade its existing broadband access network across 26 provinces in China to prepare for triple play service delivery. This agreement was signed through Alcatel Shanghai Bell, Alcatel's flagship Chinese company.

China Telecom will deploy the Alcatel solution in South China's 18 provinces and North China's eight provinces, including Guangdong, Shanghai, Sichuan, Zhejiang, Fuzhou, Hei Longjiang and Inner Mongolia. China Telecom subscribers will have access to a series of broadband services such as very high-speed Internet access, videoconference, IPTV and other multimedia services, said the press release.

Gerard Dega, president of Alcatel Shanghai Bell, commented, "As user demand for high speed Internet access services grows in China, service providers need to enhance and expand their broadband service offerings to better serve their customers."

China Telecom will deploy the Alcatel 7302 Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM). Based on an architecture that is said to ensure 100 percent service throughput to every user simultaneously, the ISAM solution will allow China Telecom to offer user-centric broadband services at triple the speed of conventional ADSL technology, the press release said.
