Malaysia's Fiberail Expands Optical Net with Alcatel-Lucent

Malaysia's is expanding its existing fiber network using equipment from Alcatel-Lucent. The Alcatel-Lucent optical solution enables Fiberail to extend its network along the railway corridor in both the western and eastern part of the Malaysian peninsula, as well as along the gas pipeline corridor on the east coast. The network will be able to carry voice, data and video traffic over a single platform, enabling Fiberail to address customer demand for advanced business applications such as Ethernet-based services, as well as popular residential applications such as triple play. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The project is based on Alcatel-Lucent's 1626 Light Manager and 1696 Metrospan, managed by the 1350 network management system.
