KT Picks Alcatel-Lucent for Next Gen IP Edge Network

KT is replacing its legacy best effort infrastructure with a new IP edge network based on Alcatel-Lucent's 7750 Service Router (SR). The new infrastructure will converge all services onto a common, scalable, service aware network allowing KT to streamline its current network operations and derive significant savings in both capital and operational expenses. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Alcatel-Lucent said that by leveraging the advanced Hierarchical-Quality of Service (H-QoS) and embedded routing intelligence (DPI) capabilities of the 7750 SR, KT will be able to offer compelling new services to its customers such as the Application Assured L2/L3 VPNs and IPsec security services.

"This achievement demonstrates we have strong leadership in IP solution area in global market including APAC region" said Rajeev Singh-Molares, president of Alcatel-Lucent's activities in Asia-Pacific. "We will be dedicated to enhancing KT's infrastructure and helping KT provide the differentiating, converged services to its business customers."http://www.alcatel-lucent.com
