According to officials from Türk Telekom, the solution will be deployed during “FiberkenTT” strategic network transformation initiative.

Its innovative any-service, any-network design is well suited for deployment in virtually any network location including remote areas, densely populated subscriber communities, large high rise units and office buildings.
“Türk Telekom is committed to providing fast, high-quality services to its customers anytime, anywhere – carrying them well into the future,” said Memet Atalay, Türk Telekom vice president of Operations. “Alcatel-Lucent’s fiber-to-the-building solution is instrumental to this. It helps us prepare for a long-term network transformation, leveraging a smart mix of copper and fiber access technologies to realize the highest speeds in the most cost-effective way.”

The Alcatel-Lucent 7353 ISAM FTTB is a multi-service access shelf with industry-leading service density. It provides four slots which can host ADSL2+, POTS, VDSL2 and Fast Ethernet service cards.
