At quarter end Alcatel shipped a total of 20.8M DSL lines worldwide, more than four times the volume of any other vendor.
Alcatel’s share of quarterly shipments in the EMEA market (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), representing 29 percent of the global market, jumped by over 12 points from the previous quarter to 50 percent with the nearest competitor at only 17 percent. Alcatel’s quarterly shipment share also grew impressively in the Asia Pacific region jumping six points to 16 percent.
The Alcatel 7300 Advanced Services Access Manager (ASAM), the word’s most widely deployed broadband access platform, and Alcatel Litespan Next Generation Digital Loop Carrier (NGDLC) systems, are the cornerstones of Alcatel’s market dominance and are prominent in the networks of over 70 of the world’s largest carriers, delivering business and residential broadband services.
“Worldwide broadband adoption is set to explode and we predict the number of subscribers will rise to over 100 million by 2005,” said Michel Rahier, president of Alcatel’s broadband networking activities. “Alcatel firmly believes a roll-out of broadband services on this scale would have the power to stimulate the global economy and provide great benefits for society as a whole. DSL is the dominant broadband technology and Alcatel is in a leading position to play a key role in this burgeoning market.”
Alcatel’s extensive list of broadband customers includes some of the largest service providers around the world including Bell Canada, BellSouth, British Telecom, China Telecom, France Telecom, SBC, Telstra and Verizon.
