SSE Selects Alcatel-Lucent to Double IP Network Coverage

SSE Telecoms has selected IP networking technology from Alcatel-Lucent to extend network coverage across the country as part of its ‘Project Edge’ program.

Alcatel-Lucent will provide enhanced Ethernet and bandwidth capabilities to meet the scaling, resilience and security demands of SSE Telecoms’ customers, whilst enabling faster service delivery and reduced costs. This will almost double network coverage across the UK during the first phase of Project Edge, an SSE Telecoms initiative designed to achieve greater network coverage and service differentiation while lowering costs through network redesign and rationalisation.

The network will support the deployment of new mission-critical, high-bandwidth IP/MPLS (Internet Protocol/Multiprotocol Layer Switching) services that enable enhanced security features, which allows the support of legacy Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) services across the enhanced network.

Alcatel-Lucent’s IP Service Routers will also pave the way for high-speed, lower cost data centre connectivity for the delivery of dynamic cloud services to meet the specific needs of SSE Telecoms’ customers. The project is expected to be complete by December 2013.
