Telus has awarded Nokia a three-year $150 million contract to provide integration and installation services for the deployment of its IP broadband access network in Canada.
The agreement supports Telus’s announced $600 million investment in broadband network infrastructure to pave the way for emerging IP applications including high definition television. The agreement covers integration, installation and deployment services.
Today’s announcement follows the November 2005 agreement that Telus would use Nokia broadband infrastructure equipment to build and support itsnew IP broadband access network.
Equipment included the Nokia D500 IP DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) multiservice broadband access platform, equipped with ADSL2+ technology that provides both multi-megabit bandwidth per customer and enhanced coverage of broadband services for end users when compared with earlier DSL technologies.
