Nortel Supplies DWDM Upgrade for China's Customs Bureau

The Customs General Administration of the People's Republic of China has selected Nortel's Optical Metro DWDM equipment to extend its networked storage capabilities from its main data center in Beijing to multiple sites across major metropolitan areas. The new China Customs deployment will also support the state-owned Golden Customs initiative, a nationwide project developed to connect the information networks of the customs and foreign trade sectors, promote EDI (electronic data interchange) business communication, and supplement information exchanged on networks with magnetic media.

China Customs' first storage network using DWDM technology will be based on Nortel Optical Metro 5200, which delivers up to 32 protected or 64 unprotected DWDM wavelengths and offers up to 10 Gbps per wavelength via a network modeling tool that simplifies and enhances the efficiency of DWDM deployment and operation. The China Customs network upgrade will also include the compact Nortel Optical Multiservice Edge 6110 to provide low-cost, multiservice aggregation and transport of client services over SONET/SDH networks, and Nortel Optical Metro 1200, a new carrier-class device to simplify delivery of Ethernet services. Financial terms were not disclosed.
