Infosys Technologies (NASDAQ:INFY) today announced how it has helped BT to launch rate-adaptive broadband speeds of up to 8Mbps on a national basis. The launch is expected to transform broadband services by offering a flexible range of options that will support future innovative broadband services such as simultaneous TV, gaming, video and music downloads. The new BT ADSL MAX suite will see the upgrade of more than 5300 exchanges across the UK from April 2006, to cover 99.6 per cent of UK homes and businesses. Infosys leveraged its Global Delivery Model to deliver innovative components rapidly, helping BT achieve fast roll-out of the high speed broadband services in the UK market.
Infosys developed an Operations Support System (OSS) for a down-stream rate adaptive ADSL* technology, instead of fixed rate technology. The new rate adaptive technology allows BT to offer higher broadband speeds, and the development of error correction methods ensures customers receive the most reliable service. Infosys partnered with BT throughout the programme life cycle from design to trials by applying best in breed quality software development techniques and applying its Global Delivery Model to deliver quality software in stringent timelines. Infosys is currently working closely with BT teams on piloting the migration to new services.
Subhash Dhar, VP & Head CSP, Infosys: "The
joint solution has enabled BT to get the most out of ADSL technology to provide higher speeds to a national footprint. At the same time, it creates a large potential market for applications and services demanding higher speeds. The technology also enables BT to better manage the line stability and customer experience."
Alan Bateman, Programme Director, BT commented: "ADSL Max is an important step towards BT's vision for the 21st Century Network to roll out new wave services that will deliver world class customer experience. Infosys teaming up with BT to deploy high value solutions has paved the way for BT to launch new mainstay services such as TV over broadband due for market launch in autumn.
