The Alcatel-Lucent ISAM technology is also designed for wire-speed performance with cost-effective Ethernet switching and enhanced Layer 2/Layer 3 functions. The Alcatel-Lucent 7342 ISAM FTTU combines ISAM performance with a comprehensive integrated solution for fiber access. With this technology, you have the flexibility to deliver RF video, IPTV, data, legacy and next generation voice – as well as backhaul 2G, 3G and WiMAX radio access, all on one platform. Just as important, the Alcatel-Lucent 7342 ISAM FTTU is managed by the same systems used for all Alcatel-Lucent access products: the Alcatel-Lucent 5520 Access Management System (AMS).

Offering a complete suite of voice, data, and video can dra- matically increase your top-line revenue as shown in Figure 1.
