Lucent Supplies VoIP for KT

Lucent will supply its "Accelerate" VoIP products to KT to support IP-based services for enterprise customers. The contract follows September's announcement of Lucent's VoIP agreement with Hanaro Telecom, the second largest wireline and broadband service provider in Korea.

The solution for KT includes the Lucent Feature Server, the platform delivering applications such as Hosted PBX, IP Centrex and Voice VPN. In addition, the call recording server, presence server, proxy server, and location-based server developed by Lucent's local business partners in Korea are included in the total solution.

During the more than 25-year relationship with KT, Lucent has provided broadband access, optical networking, switching and software solutions. The two companies recently signed a "memorandum of understanding" to collaborate on the development of a fixed/mobile convergence architecture for KT.
