Kazakhtelecom Tests 100G with Alcatel-Lucent

Kazakhtelecom, Kazakhstan's leading operator, in partnership with Alcatel-Lucent, has tested a 100 Gbps optical network connection linking the cities of Almaty and Taldykurgan. In this trial, Kazakhtelecom used the Alcatel-Lucent 1626 Light Manager enhanced with 100G next-generation coherent technology through the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS). Designed to address the booming demand for more bandwidth driven by video streaming, web applications and cloud services, Alcatel-Lucent's single-carrier, next-generation coherent technology offers unprecedented resilience to optical transmission impairments across the network. The solution deployed is part of Alcatel-Lucent's Converged Backbone, a key domain of the Alcatel-Lucent High Leverage Network™ (HLN) architecture.http://www.alcatel-lucent.com http://www.telecom.kz
