Lucent Supplies Carrier Ethernet Router to UK's Updata

Lucent Technologies is supplying Updata, a broadband solutions provider in the U.K., with one of its most advanced Carrier Ethernet platforms -- the Lucent Ethernet Router 15100 -- recently acquired from Riverstone Networks. Lucent said the deployment marks one of the first large-scale customer deployments of the Lucent Ethernet Router 15100.

The network is used to support high-speed data services for Updata's local government customers in the U.K.

  • In April 2006, Lucent Technologies completed its acquisition of certain net assets of Riverstone Networks, a maker of carrier Ethernet routers for the telecommunications industry. The purchase price under the amended agreement was approximately $207 million.
