Turk Telekom Selects Avici/Alcatel for IP/MPLS Backbone

Turk Telekom selected Avici Systems' TSR core routers for deployment in its IP/MPLS-based data backbone network. The prime contract was awarded to Alcatel in response to a request to provide an end-to-end solution to Turk Telekom. Alcatel will have turnkey responsibility for network design and planning, integration, deployment, training, service rollout and on-going maintenance. Deployment of new services will begin as early as 2006, with completion of the multi-phased contract by 2007. Financial terms were not disclosed.
