Malaysia's Maxis Goes 100G with Alcatel-Lucent

Maxis Berhad, Malaysia's leading integrated communications service provider, has deployed Alcatel-Lucent's 100G optical coherent technology in its core transmission network.

Maxis operates its optical fibre network, covering over 10,000 km of fibre infrastructure, within Peninsular Malaysia with part of the fibre infrastructure delivered through collaborative sharing and swapping.

Alcatel-Lucent noted that Maxis' optical backbone network is the first 100G single carrier with optical coherent technology system commercially deployed in Asia-Pacific.
