Ericsson says that it has been selected as one of two suppliers for AT&T's Wireline Access products and services. Wireline Access Suppliers will compete with each other for AT&T capital spending on all Wireline Access applications and products, including collaborating with third party suppliers to provide technologically leading solutions to AT&T.
"Ericsson is honored to be entrusted by AT&T with this critical role," said Angel Ruiz, President of Ericsson North America. "AT&T is a global leader in fixed broadband deployments and helps set the standard that others within the industry look to. We look forward to providing AT&T and its customers with the best technologies and solutions our industry has to offer."
Having already approved Ericsson's GPON Fiber to the Home (FTTH) solution for general deployment, AT&T will now embark on integrating Ericsson's DSL portfolio for Fiber to the Node (FTTN) and IP DSLAM solutions to support AT&T's U-verse offerings.
