French service provider Bouygues Telecom has chosen global communications industry giant Alcatel-Lucent to help tackle swelling demand for broadband services by turning its systems into one network.

The aim is for Alcatel-Lucent to take a major role in transforming the systems into a powerful and flexible Internet Protocol (IP) network to raise the overall service quality for voice and data and allow delivery to various devices.

These include smartphones and Bouygues Telecom's BBox residential gateway, combining internet access, cable TV and fixed line phone service.

The transformation would be aimed at supporting video, high-speed internet access and voice services for fixed and mobile access customers.

Bouygues Telecom plans to lead the changeover to broadband and IP, said its network director Jean-Paul Arzel. "We have chosen Alcatel-Lucent as our partner in this journey because of their IP leadership," he added.
