Alcatel Triple Play wins Frost & Sullivan Award

Alcatel has won the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Market Leadership of the Year Award in the European fixed telecoms market category. The award recognises the company’s achievement in defining the network architecture for triple play deployments.

Alcatel’s successful triple play service delivery architecture has been widely adopted in Europe and the company’s activities across the globe have substantially helped to put triple play at the forefront of the telecommunications market today.

“Alcatel, with a clear vision of the direction being taken by the marketplace, developed a product portfolio and defined a network blueprint that has been widely accepted in the European marketplace and beyond,” said Frost & Sullivan Analyst, Fernando Elizalde. “By combining a high-quality solution, excellent attention to customer requirements and superb marketing, the company has become the leader in the telecommunications market for triple play architecture. Thus, these cumulative factors make Alcatel the deserving recipient of the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership of the Year.”

“Alcatel has developed an end-to-end, reference triple play architecture and we are very pleased that Frost & Sullivan has recognised our efforts in this high-growth market,” said Michel Rahier, president of Alcatel’s fixed communications activities. “We see triple play as a driving force in the IP transformation of our customers’ networks. In such strategic network transformation process, they can leverage Alcatel’s leadership positions in products, solutions and integration capabilities.”
