NTT DOCOMO selects Alcatel-Lucent to build IP network supporting LTE

Telecom Lead Asia: NTT DOCOMO has selected
Alcatel-Lucent to build NTT DOCOMO’s Internet protocol (IP) network supporting
its LTE services.

Alcatel-Lucent’s7750 Service Routers will enable Japanese
mobile operator NTT DOCOMO to improve speed and capacity of its IP network to
address growing demand for mobile broadband services such as streamed movies
and music, and multi-player video gaming in the country.

Based on its High Leverage Network architecture,
Alcatel-Lucent’s IP portfolio is ideally suited to address the demands of NTT
DOCOMO’s customers for increasingly sophisticated, high-bandwidth mobile
services over the company’s LTE Network.

Alcatel-Lucent’s IP routers features integrated LTE Security
Gateway functionality with IPSec (IP security) technology, a key requirement to
securely transport LTE data for NTT DOCOMO. These routers can be expanded as
customer demand grows.

They are efficient, using less space and power while
increasing network performance. This characteristic is attractive in the
Japanese market, where the power grid is under pressure due to electricity
supply constraints and space is always at a premium.

Our IP service routing technology provides an
unrivaled solution for NTT DOCOMO to expand both capacity
and performance of their network while keeping space and power
consumption at the lowest level and offering a variety of easy
options to upgrade the network as needed to address shifting demand,” said
Martin Jordy, president and managing director of Alcatel-Lucent Japan.

Alcatel-Lucent has partnered with Fujitsu to put together
an offer for NTT DOCOMO’s networking needs. Fujitsu proposed the 7750 SR
as the best platform to address NTT DOCOMO’s requirements. Through the
collaboration with Fujitsu, Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its IP/MPLS solution and
Security Gateway capabilities, based on the company’s 7750 SR.
