Alcatel-Lucent helps Telenor

Alcatel-Lucent today announced that Telenor has selected the Motive Network Analyzer as part of a recently announced plan to modernize its access network in Norway.

Telenor is using Alcatel-Lucent’s Motive Network Analyzer to continuously monitor broadband connections, provide efficient troubleshooting capabilities when issues arise, and optimize every one of the connections provided to Telenor’s 500,000 broadband subscribers.

Telenor’s network modernization plans also include deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s VDSL2 technology to upgrade the existing broadband copper infrastructure to enable higher data speeds over DSL and meet demand for superfast broadband to deliver applications like video-on-demand and online gaming. Deployment of the VDSL2 technology is currently under way and Telenor expects to have 500,000 DSL lines migrated to the new platform by 2015.

Telenor will also use the Motive Network Analyzer to reduce operational and capital expenses, by continuously monitoring broadband connections and by providing more efficient troubleshooting capabilities when issues arise.

The Motive Network Analyzer manages more than 80 million access lines around the world — regardless of the vendor providing the access network technology, thanks to its Multi Vendor Plug-In (MVP) functionality — and is a part of the products available under the Motive portfolio of Customer Experience Solutions (CXS).

Terje Foyn Johannessen, director, Telephony & Internet, Telenor Norway said, “We selected Alcatel-Lucent because we wanted the most reliable and technically advanced product on the market. Deployment of the Motive Network Analyzer and VDSL2 technology directly supports our goal to provide high speed services with high quality and stability to all our DSL subscribers.”

Luis Martinez Amago, president, EMEA, Alcatel-Lucent said, “By deploying the Motive Network Analyzer, Telenor will be able to provide faster, more reliable connections for broadband subscribers. As a world-wide leader in broadband, and a long-term partner of Telenor Norway, we are excited to build further on our joint success.”
