SOFTBANK Expands Deployment of UTStarcom Optical Products

SOFTBANK is expanding its deployment of UTStarcom's NetRing 10000 STM-64 multiservice optical transport solution to build the operator's new nationwide fixed-line network. Japan Telecom, a unit of SOFTBANK, is using the new network to deliver high-speed broadband, voice and video services to its subscribers. The network ultimately will serve all of Japan, from Hokkaido in the north to Kyushu in the south. The expansion contract is valued at approximately $9 million.

    UTStarcom also provides its IP-DSLAM and GEPON transport solutions to SOFTBANK to enable the operator's Yahoo! BB broadband services.

    UTStarcom's NetRing product line provides aggregation, grooming, cross-connect, and transport functionality to deliver high-density, highly efficient STM-1 to STM-64, PDH (E1/DS1, E3/DS3), Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and ATM services in SDH-based carrier networks.
