Leading provider of communication services in Honduras to expand

Lucent Technologies on Tuesday announced that it has signed a $4.3 million contract with Hondutel, a leading provider of communication services in Honduras, to expand Hondutel’s wireline network and help extend access to communications services to people throughout the country.

Hondutel selected Lucent’s equipment, software and services to help modernize its infrastructure and respond to current and future demand for telephony services in the country. The expansion represents a major boost to Hondutel’s commitment to provide nationwide coverage with state-of-the-art communications services.

Under the terms of the agreement, Lucent will supply Hondutel with next-generation 5E-XC(TM) switch software to upgrade Lucent 5ESS(R) switches to increase capacity and expand coverage in the interior of Honduras. Through this agreement, Hondutel will become the first operator in the Caribbean and Latin American region to deploy software that is part of Lucent’s Accelerate(TM) VoIP portfolio.
