The service provider converged voice and data network promises to be implemented as nodes in a neighborhood or remote switches in regional locations. Alcatel offers products that provide the base for broadband services delivery. The Internet is poised to spin off thousands of specialized broadband services. The access network needs digital loop carriers (DLCs) that provide the platform for delivery of these services. Alcatel equipment is positioned as economical and scalable vehicles to deliver POTS, narrowband, and broadband services. Lack of knowledge about broadband architecture capability is a factor prompting delayed spending by carriers.

Any significant changes in broadband regulation could trigger growth in the access market by encouraging carriers to invest in upgrading neighborhood networks with new equipment that delivers broadband services. Congress’ enactment of the 1996 Telecommunications Act (the Act) created an environment in which carriers accelerated their offerings of voice, data and video services. In February 2003, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted new rules concerning incumbent local exchange carrier obligations for elements of their networks. Growing market demand for high bandwidth services is forcing telecom providers to reevaluate their network planning models and create new ones. Network planners and engineers responsible for this emerging network face a complex problem: how to effectively implement a network that optimizes diverse such as voice, video, and data services.

Alcatel is at the forefront of change in the communications equipment business. Customers can be served by a central office (CO) or by remote facilities. Being able to deploy the same temperature -hardened ASAM in remote cabinets, controlled environment vaults, existing DLC cabinets, and central offices gives service providers service ubiquity across their entire networks. Alcatel has expanded its participation in mobile communications markets with this segment accounting for 26% of the revenue for the first three quarters of 2003. Fixed communications accounted for 42% of total revenues for the first three quarters 2003. DSL and broadband are expected to account for an increasing proportion of Alcatel fixed infrastructure communications revenue.
