PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that Kordia™, a leading provider of customised broadcast and telecommunications network services in Asia-Pacific, has selected Alcatel-Lucent’s portfolio of IP/MPLS-based and optical networking solutions to enhance its New Zealand-wide IP network.

Kordia™’s digital microwave and fibre optic networks span the length and breadth of New Zealand, linking New Zealand’s major cities, towns and rural centres and forming the backbone of the country’s TV and radio broadcast system. Kordia™’s IP network overlays this foundation network, enabling Kordia to provide both transparent layer-2 Ethernet and layer-3 virtual private networks (VPNs) to broadcasters, service providers and businesses.

"The Alcatel-Lucent solution super-charges our IP network and enables us to expand the converged services we can offer," said Kordia™’s Networks General Manager, Derek Nielsen. "Our business depends on us being able to deliver quality of service guarantees that ensure our customers’ mission-critical traffic is prioritised and managed according to strict quality standards. Our customers, including broadcasters, have the flexibility to choose the quality of service they require for each application, from 'best-effort' services such as high-speed Internet, to services that demand high-bandwidth and low-latency such as voice and video-over-IP."
