NICE, France -- Sun Microsystems, Inc.(Nasdaq: SUNW), the creator and leading advocate of Java(tm) technology, today announced a major deal with KT (formerly KoreaTelecom) to power the carrier's next generation operations infrastructure. In addition to engaging Sun's Client Solutions organization to design an Operations Support Systems through Java (tm) solution running on SPARC (tm) and AMD Opteron (tm) powered Sun Fire(tm) servers, KT's selection helps fortify Java technology as the solution of choice to help carriers design cost-effective, modular and re-usable operations infrastructures.

Sun's Client Solutions organization will work with KT Operations Labs to develop a Broadband Convergence Network (BcN) network management system.

With Sun's OSS through Java solutions and services, KT will be able to easily implement new operations solutions and integrate with multiple legacy systems, as well as support web-based, customer-centric service management for BcN services and networks. As part of the deal, KT also selected Sun Fire Enterprise 25K, Enterprise 4900, Enterprise 6900 and V40z servers, the Java Enterprise System and Solaris (tm) operating system.

"KT offers a wide variety of market-leading telecommunications products and services to one of the most demanding marketplaces in the world," said Seonghak Seok, Director of OSS Labs, KT. "We have been looking forward to an open standards-based solution to manage our BcN networks and services that we can implement quickly and cost effectively. I believe OSS/J is an ideal operations infrastructure to satisfy these needs, and Sun's extensive telecommunications experience further makes them the right partner to develop an operations infrastructure for any network and application."
