Alcatel-Lucent technology driving reliability of Telekom Srbija ultra-broadband access to new video, data and business services

Motive’s Network Analyzer helping Telekom Srbija increase its high quality network performance and enhance customer experience

Paris, April 28, 2014

Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced the deployment by Telekom Srbija of its Motive Network Analyzer solution as part of a network upgrade to provide customers throughout Serbia with ultra-broadband access to high-speed Internet, video-on-demand and advanced new business services.

Telekom Srbija will use the system to provide a high quality customer experience to its more than one million customers over existing multi-vendor, multi-technology copper access (DSL) lines.

The Motive Network Analyzer enables the operator to remotely diagnose line quality and act proactively addressing issues before they impact the customer. It also offers dynamic line management (DLM) technology, which ensures optimal performance.

Telekom Srbija is making significant investments in its broadband copper infrastructure by migrating to VDSL2 vectoring technology that will deliver higher speeds to meet the demand for superfast broadband connections and high quality video content. Motive Network Analyzer allows Telekom Srbija to maximize this investment with its Upgrade Predictor functionality, which ensures that the service requested by the customer can be delivered with the required quality.

Key Facts:

  • Telekom Srbija is using the Motive Network Analyzer to guarantee a high quality experience of its high-speed internet and triple play services, as well as to provide its users with the highest possible broadband speeds.
  • The Motive Network Analyzer helps Telekom Srbija to ensure that its existing digital subscriber lines (DSL) meet the quality and stability demands of consumer and business users, while also reducing operational costs through continuous monitoring of the DSL lines.
  • One of the products available under the Motive portfolio of Customer Experience Solutions (CXS), the Motive Network Analyzer works in a multivendor environment and manages more than 80 million access lines around the world.
