Nortel Announces Optical Projects in China, Philippines

Six power companies spread across China are building a secure optical network using equipment from Nortel to deliver advanced communication services like real-time power control data management, high-speed Internet access and multimedia applications. The deployment will use Nortel's Optical Metro 3500 Multiservice Platforms with Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) and Optical Metro 4150 STM-4 SDH solutions to converge TDM private line and IP broadband data services onto a single infrastructure.

The Philippines Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) and its subsidiary, Smart Communications (SMART) have also chosen Nortel for an expansion of its domestic DWDM backbone. Under the sixth expansion, PLDT is deploying Nortel Optical Long Haul 1600 and Optical Cross Connect DX systems to light up another wavelength of 10G capacity. PLDT is deploying a number of Optical Metro 4100/4200 systems in different parts of the country. For its metro Manila optical network expansion, SMART is deploying a Nortel Optical Multiservice Edge (OME) 6500 solution complemented by Optical Metro 4150 multiplexers. In a separate project designed to address the evolving capacity requirements of SMART's GSM subscriber base, Nortel will also expand the wireless operator's optical infrastructure to upgrade the Loop6 portion of its metro Manila network.
