Portugal's ONI Implements ASON/GMPLS with Alcatel-Lucent

ONI Communications (ONI), a leading Portuguese communications operator, has completed the deployment of a control-plane based optical network based on Alcatel-Lucent's solution. The intelligent optical core enables higher levels of network security and availability to ONI's business customers.

Alcatel-Lucent deployed an optical network using an intelligent control plane. The intelligent control plane, based on Automatically Switched Optical Network/Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (ASON/GMPLS) technology, is key for dynamic networking and traffic protection.
