Alcatel-Lucent Selectecd for IP/MPLS in Ukraine

Kyivstar GSM, the largest operator in Ukraine, has selected Alcatel-Lucent to design, install, and maintain a country-wide Metropolitan transmission packet based IP/MPLS network as part of its larger IP network transformation. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Alcatel-Lucent will supply products from its industry leading Service Router (SR) portfolio including the 7750 SR, 7210 Service Access Switch and the 5620 Service Aware Manager to address the access, aggregation and core network layers. To offer a full end-to-end solution, Alcatel-Lucent will also supply its next generation Enterprise product, the Omni Switch 6250, to deliver residential access and 3G backhauling. Alcatel-Lucent will also provide professional services.

The network transformation will be performed in two phases: phase one will cover the needs of end-users services (HSI, VoIP, IPTV) and up-coming 3G mobile traffic. During the second phase 2G traffic will be gradually moved from SDH to the converged IP network.
