New World Telecom selects Alcatel-Lucent for 100G tech

New World Telecom, a telecom service provider in Hong
Kong, has selected Alcatel-Lucent to prepare its optical network for launching
100-G (gigabit) technology, enabling the operator to offer a growing variety of
enterprise services to the customers.


Alcatel-Lucent will help expand the capacity,
performance and flexibility of our network to address the rapid growth in
demand for high speed data transmission, especially suitable for
telecommunications, banking and finance, as well as media industries in Hong
Kong,” said Johnny Cheung, executive vice president, Networks and IT of New World Telecom.


Demand for every kind of data service is exploding in
the Asia-Pacific region, and New World Telecom is moving quickly to capitalize
on this demand.  By upgrading their optical network to support very high
speeds, they have taken a bold step to ensure that customers in Hong Kong can
take advantage of one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful optical
networks,” said Rajeev Singh-Molares, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s activities
in the Asia-Pacific Region.


The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS gives service providers considerable flexibility by re-allocating
bandwidth automatically to address any faults that occur in the network. This
means that New World Telecom and its customers can count on the network to
deliver exceptional reliability.


By employing the 100G-capable 1830 PSS, New World Telecom
will be able to support a mixture of 10G, 40G and 100G
channels on the same fiber pair, which means the network will need no
re-engineering, protecting initial investment, driving down operational costs
and power consumption significantly.


The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS is a central element of
Alcatel-Lucent’s Converged Backbone solution, a key domain of the
Alcatel-Lucent High Leverage Network (HLN) architecture, which is designed to
cut transport costs and dramatically reduce operational complexity in core
