Lucent Supplies Optical Network for Jiangsu Telecom

Jiangsu Telecom has activated its next generation optical transmission network using Lucent Technologies' LambdaUnite Multi-Service Switch (MSS). Lucent also supplied the Navis Optical Management System, as well as technical support from Lucent Worldwide Services (LWS) to Jiangsu Telecom. LWS provided installation and testing services, and on-site support. The contract was first announced in May 2004.

Lucent said the network marks the first deployment of Automatic Switched Optical Network (ASON) technology in China. A distributed control plane in the ASON provides the optical network with the faster setup and release of connections and it can more quickly detect a problem and restore itself in the event of a failure.
