Alcatel-Lucent to deploy IP backhaul network to support SK Telecom’s LTE-Advanced

Alcatel-Lucent will deploy an IP-based mobile backhaul network to support LTE-Advanced services for SK Telecom.

The IP/MPLS mobile backhaul solution, to be deployed in October, will link SK Telecom cell sites.

With this new solution SK Telecom will support LTE-Advanced, LTE, WiBro (WiMAX), and Wi-Fi mobile data traffic as well as improve the quality of its mobile IPTV service named ‘B tv mobile’, and improve customer satisfaction by offering new mobile services.

Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its 7750 Service Router (SR) and 5650 Control Plane Assurance Manager along with the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM).

Alcatel-Lucent is rapidly accelerating investments in IP routing to help customers evolve as quickly as possible to all-IP networks. This will help them to rollout services more efficiently and meet their customers’ data demands today and into the future.

Alcatel-Lucent has shipped 300,000 service router platforms (7750 SR) to more than 500 service providers, including KT, LG U+, SK Broadband Korea, as well as globally to customers including AT&T, Verizon, BT and NTT Docomo.

This project aligns with Alcatel-Lucent’s focus on IP platforms as outlined in The Shift Plan announced on June 19, 2013.
