LG U+ Deploys Alcatel-Lucent's 7750 Service Router

LG U Plus (formerly LG Telecom) has deployed Alcatel-Lucent’s IP/MPLS platform in some of the Korea's major cities.  The installation marks the first deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s service routers in Korea using its FP3 400G processor.

The LG U+ deployment uses the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router (SR) portfolio.  

Alcatel-Lucent noted that its Service Router portfolio has been adopted by more than 475 carriers with presence in over 110 countries. 


  • LG U+ has previously disclosed the selection of Samsung, Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks as key suppliers for its LTE rollout.
  • In August 2012, Korea's LG U+ announced the launch of commercial VoLTE service. LG U+ is using AMR-WB (Adaptive Multi Rate Wideband) voice codecs covering the 50MHz ~ 7GHz range. Call connection times are rated from 0.25 to 2.5 seconds, or up to 20 times faster that 3G call connection times. LG U+ is using QCI (QoS Class Identifier) ​​technology to ensure voice performance even during traffic spikes on the network.
