PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) and the operator Chuan Wei are to deploy Cambodia’s first 100 gigabit-per-second fiber-optic data network as the country invests further in communications infrastructure to meet increasing demand for ultra-broadband access.
With Cambodia’s economy growing at more than 7% annually, the country is becoming a key business hub for south-east Asia. In addition, business growth and strong trading agreements with Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, coupled with a growing tourism industry, is creating significant need for increased network capacity.
Alcatel-Lucent’s provision of a 100G network to Chuan Wei will provide much-needed capacity now while paving the way for 400G capacity in the future. At the same time, this nationwide DWDM network will connect to submarine cable landing station.
- Data traffic growth in Cambodia is among the highest in the Asia-Pacific region.
- Alcatel-Lucent is building a 100G DWDM/OTN network for Chuan Wei using Alcatel-Lucent’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform, a family designed to the latest international SD-FEC zero-touch photonics and coherent technology.
- Alcatel-Lucent Agile Optical Networking combines Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (WDM) , Optical Transport Network (OTN), and Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS)/Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON) control plane intelligence to assure scalable, versatile, reliable and efficient transport at 100G and beyond.
