ALCATEL has won a RM40mil contract to supply its Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) solution to TELEKOM MALAYSIA BHD.
The Alcatel solutions would extend Telekom's nationwide broadband Internet services, Streamyx, the company said in a statement yesterday.
The network is being delivered through RESSCOM Technologies, a local solutions provider in telecommunications and information and communications technology.
Under the contract, the company will supply the Alcatel 7300 Advanced Services Access Manager (ASAM) to build a broadband network covering the western part of Selangor, Petaling Jaya and Penang regions, where there is an increasing demand for high-speed and value-added broadband services.
On completion of the network in the third quarter this year, Telekom will be able to increase its network coverage and scalability and offer new user-centric broadband services to meet the growing market demand.
“We believe that our partnership will bring good combination of a world-class solution, local expertise and international experience to the project,” said RESSCOM chief executive officer Norazmi Mohameddan.
Alcatel Malaysia managing director Yusof Ampuan Kechil said the company was confident its experience and innovation in broadband solutions would enable Telekom to further expand its service offerings to include a wider range of multimedia services such as streaming video, music download, interactive video game, and broadband communication services.
The contract reinforces Alcatel's global leadership in DSL. Alcatel has a 37% share of the global DSL access market based on February 2004 data from industry analyst, Dell's Oro Group, and has shipped more than 39.2 million DSL lines. – Bernama
