Alcatel-Lucent today announced its 100G fiber-optic data network deal with telecom operator Chuan Wei in Cambodia.
As part of the deal announced on Friday, Alcatel-Lucent will supply 100G network to Chuan Wei to manage capacity, while paving the way for 400G capacity in the future. This DWDM network will connect to submarine cable landing station.
Chuan Wei aims to tap data traffic growth in Cambodia which is among the highest in the Asia-Pacific region.
Alcatel-Lucent is building a 100G DWDM/OTN network for Chuan Wei using Alcatel-Lucent’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform, a family designed to the latest international SD-FEC zero-touch photonics and coherent technology.
Alcatel-Lucent Agile Optical Networking combines Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (WDM) , Optical Transport Network (OTN), and Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS)/Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON) control plane intelligence to assure scalable, versatile, reliable and efficient transport at 100G and beyond.
“We were looking for a network with significant increase in capacity, even more reliability, and a high degree of scalability to prepare our network for 400G and beyond,” said Eric Lee, executive director of Chuan Wei.
