PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is to supply its powerful IP routing technology – including the 7950 XRS IP Core Router and 7750 Service Router - to China Telecom, allowing it to expand its 4G LTE ultra-broadband wireless network and meet booming customer demand.
China is the wireless broadband market leader1, and is expected to account for nearly a third of global 4G LTE subscriptions by 20192. To do so, China Telecom has turned to Alcatel-Lucent to ensure that its IP network has the scalability and flexibility to manage the future growth in data traffic, allowing it to deliver high-quality 4G LTE services, even as it expands its network further.
Alcatel-Lucent will apply its leading core and edge routing technologies in the deployment with China Telecom. The 7950 XRS, already in use in Jiangsu province and Shanghai, will manage the increasing traffic in the urban data centers of Beijing – China’s capital city and one of the world’s most populous cities - as well as the financial hub of Guangzhou. Alcatel-Lucent’s 7750 Service Router will be deployed across seven major provinces.
All deployments will be completed in preparation for service in China Telecom’s network in December.
