BT adds another DSLAM supplier
BT Wholesale announced on Monday that Marconi are to supply Marconi's Access Hub product. This makes Marconi the third DSLAM supplier in BTs stock cupboard, joining Alcatel and Fujitsu.
Precisely what benefits this agreement offers is not clear from the information released but key phrases would appear to be "Currently BT is testing its ideas against the best in the world, planning a portfolio of products and designing the blueprint of the architecture. Later this year concept and market trials are planned. The progressive deployment of new technological and systems developments will be seen from 2004 onwards." Which would suggest BT has some tricks up its sleeve.
