PARIS, CAMBRIDGE, U.K., and KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Cambridge Broadband and Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) are providing Malaysian operator, Maxis, with a point-to-multipoint backhaul network for its cellular networks. Deployment of Cambridge Broadband's VectaStar equipment is continuing throughout the first quarter of 2007 and the network is already operational in the country's capital of Kuala Lumpur.

VectaStar's point-to-multipoint architecture allows the network to be easily managed and scaled for very high data requirements, with each sector's bandwidth being dynamically shared between its cellular BTS/NodeBs. VectaStar's traffic management techniques, including Abis, Iub and IP optimization, provide considerable cost savings compared to alternate backhaul solutions, in both the tail circuits and in aggregated traffic in the core network.

Maxis' Chief Technology Officer, Rolf Marthinusen, said: "In view of the overwhelming success of our high-speed data service, Maxis is upgrading its transmission network to accommodate expected capacity requirements as a result of subscriber growth. We have been transporting live traffic on our VectaStar network for more than a year, and are very impressed with its performance and manageability."
