  • Deutsche Telekom, Alcatel Sign Global Purchase Agreement
Oct 2001
PARIS, Oct. 16 -- Alcatel has signed an exclusive Global Master Purchasing Agreement (GMPA) to supply broadband switching products and services to the Deutsche Telekom Group.

The agreement, which covers all of Deutsche Telekom's operations, solidifies its commitment to Alcatel's asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) technology. As a result of the GMPA, Alcatel also announced that Deutsche Telekom has selected the Alcatel 7670 routing switch platform (RSP) to expand its national ATM data network backbone in Germany.

The 7670 RSP will enable Deutsche Telekom to scale existing multiservice networks from 12.8 Gbs platform to 450 Gbs to meet the demands placed on the core network by consolidation of the different ATM-platforms. The contract also includes the Alcatel 5620 Network Manager (NM), which will enable Deutsche Telekom to seamlessly integrate the new backbone network into its existing ATM edge/access network and to provide advanced functionality including ease of configuration, performance management, accounting, reporting and network security.
