AT&T chooses Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson for G-PON deployment

AT&T has selected Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson to provide equipment for the planned deployment of Gigabit Passive Optical Network (G-PON) in new-build areas of AT&T affiliates' local service territories as part of the overall U-verse network strategy, the company said.

G-PON is the newest standard for fiber-to-the-home technology, with capacity to deliver greater speeds than current-generation Broadband Passive Optical Network (B-PON) technology.

With its U-verse strategy, AT&T is deploying fiber-to-the-home technology, including PON, in new-build residential areas throughout the local telecommunications service territories and will deploy a fiber-to-the-node network infrastructure in existing neighborhoods. Both of these network infrastructures enable delivery of the U-verse portfolio of IP-based services.
